Descotes, in Human Toxicology, ASBESTOS AND MAN-MADE MINERAL FIBERS. Natural (asbestos) and man-made mineral fibers [43–46] are widely used for their heat, electrical and acoustic insulating properties, and to add strength to cement products, or reinforce brake shoes. Asbestos is a generic name given to a group of highly fibrous minerals that are hydrated silicates of magnesium and.

Fiber supplements — such as Metamucil, Citrucel and FiberCon — don't provide the variety of fibers, vitamins, minerals and other beneficial nutrients that foods do. Another way to get more fiber is to eat foods, such as cereal, granola bars, yogurt and ice cream, with fiber added. Asbestiform fibers, including asbestos fibers, are mineral fibers that are characterized by a specific set of interdependent physical properties, including fiberlike shape, enhanced strength and flexibility, increased durability, strong and defect-free surface structure, and the dependence of these properties on conditions of growth. Overview. Synthetic mineral fibers are fibrous inorganic substances made primarily from rock, clay, slag, or glass. These fibers are classified into three general groups: fiberglass (glass wool and glass filament), mineral wool (rock wool and slag wool), and refractory ceramic fibers (RCF). It was expected that the future impact of fibres on human health would be very small since asbestos exposure would be controlled and there was little chance that man-made fibres would prove haz­ ardous. These man-made fibres are much thicker than asbestos .

N. Rezvani, D.L. Bolduc, in Encyclopedia of Toxicology (Third Edition), Mechanism of Toxicity. The tumorigenesis of mineral fibers is governed by the dimensions and inherent differences in the physicochemical properties of the fibers (intrinsic fiber potencies), for example, studies of carcinogenic fibers have found that fiber geometry and length seem to be the most important factors.
