Because of its special material properties (high strength, heat resistant), asbestos was used until the late 20th production material. However, there were early indications of significant health risks when dealing with asbestos. Asbestosis has been identified as a lung disease caused by inhaled asbestos fibers. The lung cancer risk is also massively increased in those affected. Despite the ban on the production and use of asbestos, which has been in force in Germany for almost 20 years, the material is still relatively widespread as an “contaminated site” and to this day many people are exposed to unforeseen health risks when, for example, they dispose of their old planters or the roof renew their garden house.
