Emphysema due to asbestos exposure

How does asbestos exposure cause emphysema?

Over 3.5 million people in the United States are currently struggling with emphysema, a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that entails severe damage to the air sacs of the lungs, medically known as alveoli. While the primary cause of emphysema is tobacco smoking, multiple reliable medical studies found that asbestos exposure can also be a contributing factor to this lung disease.

Because most asbestos exposure occurs via inhalation, people who worked with or were surrounded by this dangerous mineral are more likely to develop emphysema, as a large part of the asbestos fibers they breathed in remain attached to the tissue of their lungs. Over the years, this leads to the occurrence of inflammation and scarring, which may eventually result in emphysema.
