Dangers related to vermiculite include exposure to amphibole asbestos cells. If asbestos particles are found in the air you breathe, it could be harmful to your health and that of your family. If inhaled in large quantities, asbestos fibers can cause asbestosis (formation of scar tissue in the lungs, harmful to respiration), lung cancer or mesothelioma (cancer of the thoracic wall). The effects of exposure to asbestos will depend on:
- Length of exposure
- Frequency of exposure
- Concentration of particles in the surrounding air
- Size of the fibers inhaled
