Take all symptoms seriously. Exposure may not result in symptoms for ten years. In fact, it can take 10 - 40 years for symptoms to appear.

Different types of asbestos fibers are associated with different health risks. Several tests suggest that amphibole forms of asbestos can be the cause of chrysotile, a more harmful form. Others offer a greater or lesser risk to people who have been exposed. However, no one should listen to any propaganda that suggests that 'any' forms of asbestos are not worth worrying about.

It is well known that risk increases with heavier exposure and longer exposure times, people have become ill with only a brief exposure.
