THE DANGERS OF ASBESTOS FIBER FOR THE BODY
Asbestos-based material is still widely used as a building for houses. In the long term, continuous inhalation of asbestos fibers can pose a health risk. Asbestos fiber enters the body by inhalation (exhalation).
The harmful effects of inhaling asbestos fibers cannot be seen in the short term, sometimes it can take 20-30 years to see the initial symptoms appear. While there is no "safe level" of asbestos exposure, people who are exposed to it more frequently for long periods are much more at risk.
Asbestosis (the emergence of scar tissue in the lungs), lung cancer, and mesothelioma (cancer that attacks the lining of the mesothelium) is three dangerous diseases caused by the body unable to destroy the inhaled asbestos fibers into the body.
Being selective in choosing the building materials used is very important, to avoid yourself and your family from the effects of inhaling asbestos fibers continuously. Avoid materials that are harmful to health because health is the main thing for us to carry out all activities.
Cement board (fiber cement board) GRC board pays close attention to health factors for its users and is the right choice as a substitute for asbestos for application on roofs of houses. By using asbestos-free materials, we can protect ourselves and our families from the threat of health problems that are harmful to the body.
The GRC cement board has received the SNI 8299 certificate, as a non-asbestos flat cement board.
