I recall reading awhile back that asbestos is more common than most people think, though I don't recall the source. There was a story on aol about a town that had a lot of asbestos, and a doctor was being honest with his patients about it. His honesty caused a stir.

I don't know if asbestos causes asthma, but I do know it affects breathing.
