Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral that can sometimes be found naturally in soil. However, the widespread use of asbestos in manufacturing and construction until recent decades has introduced unnaturally high amounts of asbestos into the environment in some areas. If soil is contaminated with asbestos, it can continue to lie dormant in the ground until the soil is disturbed and the mineral particles are released. Inhalation of asbestos particles can cause a number of health problems including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other pulmonary diseases and cancers.
