The Risk Of Asbestos Exposure In South African Diamond Mine

Exposures estimates of the Wittenoom mining workforce and Dec 15 2018A similar concern was expressed in relation to the exposure data relating to South African mining cohorts (Browne 2001) It can be said that the Australian workers cohorts had extremely high exposures to crocidolite and this was mainly over a short employment period so that exposure duration became the major overriding risk factor for each exposed group category An overview of how asbestos exposure affects the lungrisk to people using asbestos products was recognised in shipyard workers in the 1950s and an association with mesothelioma was determined in the 1960s through a case-control study in South African miners 2 However one of the first suggestions that exposure to asbestos can cause lung disease was in 1899 in an industrial diseasesHow to clear out lungs having inhaled asbestos?
