Inhalation of asbestos may cause asbestosis, pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma or lung cancer. 50 to 60 million particles per cubic foot-year is the dose estimated to cause asbestosis. Likely sources of asbestos air pollution are uses of asbestos products in the construction industry and asbestos mines and factories. No estimates on the costs of damage resulting from asbestos air pollution were found. No satisfactory analytical method was available at the time to determine asbestos in the atmosphere.
