In Australia, asbestos cement materials were first manufactured in the 1920s and were commonly used in the manufacture of residential building materials from the mid-1940s until the late 1980s.
Asbestos-containing cement was used in building materials because the fibers provided strength without adding much weight. Asbestos was used in the production of cloths and garments for its resistance to heat and corrosive elements. Some of the most common textiles included blankets, fireman suits and rope. In fact, it used to be hailed as the “magic mineral.”
However, asbestos was soon discovered to be anything but magic. People who were exposed to it suddenly began developing insidious diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer. When asbestos is broken or disturbed, its small fibers can become airborne where they are easily inhaled and swallowed. Once in the body, these fibers can irritate organ tissue and cause DNA damage. So, on the 31st December 2003 asbestos and all products containing asbestos were banned throughout Australia.
