Question: Asbestos in the World Trade Trade Center

I was watching a documentary about asbestos and learned that the World Trade Center towers had asbestos installed in the first 40 floors before the material was banned from use. What would the health affects be if the entire two buildings had asbestos when they collapsed on 9/11?

Also the fire-proofing inside the area where the planes hit was blown out, so I assume if asbestos were there instead it would also be blown out and the outcome would've been the same? Or is it possible this could've at least delayed the collapse of the two buildings?

I would think the high cancer rates of first responders would be a start.

Asbestos may also have been used as insulation on the upper floors of the Twin Towers and used in the ceilings as well.
