Caption

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of one of the species of asbestos, a fibrous amphibole mineral. Asbestos is easily felted & woven into fabrics or board. Its heat-resistant properties make it attractive to the building trade. Inhalation of asbestos fibres causes inflammation of the lungs (asbestosis) & may lead to cancer of the lungs.
