Caption: Asbestos waste dumped in a field. Asbestos consists of silicate minerals that were used as insulation in the building industry. If the asbestos panels degrade, asbestos fibres will be released into the air. These are small and can be inhaled deep into the lungs. As the body is unable to degrade them, lung damage (asbestosis) and lung cancers such as mesotheliomas result. Photographed in Cheshire, England.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
