Yes. Some types may be more hazardous than others, but the US Department of Health, the EPA, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer have classified all types of asbestos as cancer-causing substances.
It has been discovered that all identified forms of asbestos can cause the following:
- Lung Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Laryngeal Cancer
- Malignant Mesothelioma
The Health Protection Agency in the UK has determined that the brown asbestos (amosite) and the blue asbestos (claim crocidolite) are the most dangerous forms.
