Asbestos is known to cause various diseases including asbestos cancer, a condition that kills 2000 people in the U.K. each year. Not only is the substance found in the ceilings and walls of old structures, but it is still in production today. Because of the monetary value of the asbestos industry, the substance is still in use, despite its harmful and sometimes fatal effects. The smallest exposure to this substance can have harmful effects, and it is slowly being removed from older buildings, bu nothing is being done to elimiante its use. While removing it can be costly and take a great deal of time, a purifier can help prevent the harmful effects it has.
