Latency Period for A


You know, everyone knows what latency is. If I have a cold and you're exposed to me, two or three or four days later you may get a cold. The latency for a cold is only two, three, or four days. Unfortunately, for asbestos-related diseases, the latency between the time you breathe asbestos and the time you manifest a disease or you're diagnosed with a disease is twenty, thirty, forty, even fifty years after the exposure occurs. This is why people use these products for so long. Because they never had any idea at the time they were using these products, breathing the dust, that the dust was hurting them in any way, because it would be twenty, thirty, forty years before the affects of breathing that dust caused them to develop a cancer. A disabling or a deadly disease, or deadly cancer.
