Could asbestos leaking from the cracked popcorn ceiling?

The inspection showed that the ceiling of my house is asbestos. (chrysotile 5%, amosite 2%) There are nail holes and cracks in the ceiling of our pancon. Could this be asbestos spilling right now?

    NO. Asbestos can't leak. If you ceiling was inspected and asbestos was found, you wouldn't be asking this question.

    Hard to say, without seeing it. Fine particles of dust, inhaled over lengthy periods of time is how asbestosis occurs. Blue asbestos is the most dangerous type.
