At its most basic level, asbestos is a mineral that's mined from the earth. One of the reasons it was (and is) so commonly used is because it's incredibly fire-resistant. Unfortunately, though, it's made up of tiny fibers that, when they become airborne, can get into people’s lungs and cause damage. Asbestos that's still whole (not broken apart, or cut into) is perfectly safe; it's only when it has been cut or damaged that it becomes a problem.
There's no need to panic if you get an asbestos test for your home or property, and it comes back “hot” (positive). Asbestos was, and still is, commonly used in construction. Even a percentage of homes built this year will be built with asbestos containing material present. Basically, asbestos was outlawed from manufacturing into material used in homes, in the United States, in the 1970’s. But, it is not illegal for asbestos containing material to be used in the construction of homes, so long as that material was imported. Weird loophole. But true.
