Asbestos in Brake Pads - Where Asbestos was Located

2021-4-29  Mesothelioma is a fatal form of cancer. The only known cause of this deadly disease is exposure to airborne asbestos fibers. Airborne asbestos particles found in brake repair environments are light and mobile. They linger in the atmosphere for lengthy times where anyone in the area inhaled these tiny shards.
