Asbestos is a naturally occurring fiber that was a popular construction material used in many homes from the 1940s through the mid-1980s in Australia. It provided strength and durability to products and had excellent insulation properties. However, asbestos can present health problems that lead to a rare and dangerous form of lung cancer, mesothelioma. It can also lead to asbestosis, a prolonged lung disease.
