Why the Deadly Asbestos Industry is Still Alive and Well

The asbestos manufacture is able to thrivein Russia because very little attention is given to human rights or civil rights. Putin certainly basically rolls the depict one might ask what is the future ofasbestos production in use as long as There’s profit to be made and officials tobe bribed, this will continue but if you can’t ensure asbestos “the worlds largest” notoriousindustrial carcinogen known what can you restrain? asbestos is a remarkable mineralactually stone, it is made up of tiny but extremely strong and flexible fibers itwas absolutely burn safe and liquid couldn’t suffering it. We recommend you considerthis material for your home.Designed to last-place a lifetime, a perturb freelifetime! Asbestos was once widely used in homes and constructs across the US but is now known as a carcinogen and hazardous substance because of the dangeroushealth risks from exposure to this poisonous mineral massive exertion is put intoremoving it from houses and materials because asbestos kills more than ahundred thousand people a year and is Banned in 59 countries. But rather than being left in the grind countries like Russia one of the world’slargest make of asbestos quarries about a million tons of it a year and suppliesmore than half the world’s asbestos to find out why anyone would still work with and sell such a risky substance we went to the home of theworld’s largest asbestos quarry in a place so proud of their manufacture they listed thetown after it Asbest, Russia Despite overwhelming technical evidence thatasbestos exposure campaigns cancer as we drove through the town all we watched weresigns of neighbourhood prime and a tombstone literally made out of a clump ofasbestos Asebstos is often mined by apply dynamite regrettably that intends the deadlyfibers are spread into the air which did me fright of reputation close tothe pit without full protective gear when I turned up wearing what’s legallyrequired in the USA and Europe I was almost like an alien and certainly stood out from thelocals as it turns up the Euro Alaska Mineis the neighbourhood tourist fascination and if sightseers want to learn more they can visit a museum in towndedicated to it asbestos mining boomed during the Sovietera This formerly agrarian region became one of the hundreds of soviet mono townships who’s entire economy was structured around a single mine or mill to this day the Euro asbest excavation specify seventy percent of the town’s income which means thatbanning it would be economically devastating We called the dwelling of a local person who worked as an excavator motorists in the asbestos mine hehad lived his whole life in Asbest precisely a few minutes foot from the openpit because of the impact this interview could have on his enterprise and his family wehad to conceal his identity does everything in Asbest revolvearound the asbestos industry? Are you worried about him any lucks that come withworking with asbestos? After this Euro Asbest employee astonishingly conveyedthat he was not grim to handle asbestos we met a retired mine workerwho had a more skeptical outlook on the situation We wanted to find out more about the health risks of asbestos exposure we spoke to an experton the subject the reverenced epidemiologist Dr.Arthur Frank the period asbestosrefers to six naturally occurring minerals chrysotile being one of them itis the only serpentine form the other five are called amphiboles they arestructurally different but medically have the same properties asbestos at onetime was called the magic mineral because it was utilized for numerous usefulthings insularity substances it didn’t attend electricity it was used as afiltering agent over three to four thousand products alone and the UnitedStates one time had asbestos.It was a wonderful material unfortunately it alsokilled people what happens when you’re disclosed is you both inhale it and youingest it. The asbestos has the ability to alter the nucleus of the cadres so thatthese cells now become cancerous get a lung cancer or the disease we callmesothelioma this cancer of the lining of the lung that loads the lung withfluid in most cases and then over age literally suffocates you and willultimately kill you in the United District this had adevastating effect on those people exposed essentially everyone in theconstruction business was uncovered shipyard employees were uncovered and many othershave been exposed over duration the effects of asbestos exposure in the UnitedStates is evident in mining towns like Libby, Montana water, grunge, residence, institution playgrounds in industrial locates in Libby were infected with asbestos as a result of a nearby vermiculite mineand processing activity owned by WR Grace and Company usually safe and usedin many commodities the vermiculite in the mine was heavily contaminated with asbestosand as a result over 400 parties have died in Libby due to exposure toasbestos or from asbestos referred ailments She comes down here in her cart, leaves it right here, gets out, goes to the bathroom She…She can’t even brush her teeth and she has to come out here and stand here and get her wheeze before she knows how even sit down because it originates her worse when she sits down for a duo seconds.It’s terrible she got a special bunked, she has to have Don Munsel never drove in the quarry himself. His stepfather did and the asbestos dust in the clothes he brought back from effort was enough togive Don severe mesothelioma I just think I’ve been chiselled They should have warned the people in this town about the seriousness of it they got away with slaughter I didn’t think I’d ever get onto cause i neverworked there but I did I gotta stand up a little bit and all this talking even decreased my wheeze out real bad Yeah, I’ve lived in this country all my life I never saw this would happen to me These five containers last 2 weeks And now that she’s up on eight I don’t even think it’ll last-place 2 weeks if it takes me over 60 seconds to do this, she elapses out, she literally will pass out They knew it was bad for us and they tell us expose our newborns and people that would come and visit us “Oh, the best way to show them how this stuff wreaks is to pop it for them” So you get a little piece of paper, a little piece of the ore, vermiculite and it would be no bigger than a slice of your article and you’d heat it up and it would* shh* go about this thick It was amazing but it was the worst thing we could’ve done to them I was a foreman and I had to go up a great deal and so she’d ride up there with me, and my kids We’d got to go, take them through the flower and was an indication how it range and stuff and…I miss being spontaneous we lovedto fish, so we’d get behind the screening seed that was a good easy fish fault after dinner the children, I could give them down in that asbestos sand They’d construct sandcastles and they’d play and build all kinds of things in this asbestos while I exactly had fun fishing as beautiful as home countries is, it killed us I know it’s gonna kill me and it’s probably gonna kill my minors and partner and it didn’t really kill us, it was W.R. Grace that killed us they knew they knew … In June 2009, The EPAdeclared a public health emergency in the town of Libby and surroundingcommunities the area is now designated as a Superfund site also known as ahazardous waste site and the EPA investigation and cleanup of the site isongoing the asbestos in libby is a different kind of asbestos than what’smined in russia but the scientific community has found that all types ofasbestos can cause cancer and deadly lung infections to find out why this toxic industrycontinues to thrive around the developing world we met with MIT professor and formerchair of the National Advisory Committee on occupational safety and health, Dr.Nicholas Ashford the asbestos industry today I thinkyou would have to say is you know a criminal industry and all theepidemiological societies, fifteen of them, have endorsed the fact that this should be regarded as a hazard and when you deliberately ignore public and worker health you’re committing murderthere’s no other way to throw it you could argue that you don’t knowwhich special worker you’re murdering but on the whole, the statistics arevery very clear with all the proof from the asbestos exposure in the U.S.Wewondered if physicians and officials in Russia were aware of the risks posed tothe workers of the Euro Asbest asbestos mine and the people living nearby sowe drove to the Oncology Center in nearby Yekaterinburg to meet Dr.Sergey Berezin, hoping he could tell us about the alter the mine in Asbestwas having on the citizens What are the most common types of cancer in this area? Do you have a lot of patients from Asbest? Not only did Dr.Berezin not fear the aura in Asbest, he seemed fairly fond ofthe mineral itself which fully contradicts what oncologists in the Westwould have to say about asbestos That’s asbestos! and you are eligible to only touch it like that? It’s not risky? That was such a strange interview As he wouldn’t let us speak to his patients at the Yekaterinburg Oncology Center We headed to the regional hospice in Asbest to see if anyone there would speak out our fixer is trying to talk to one of the patientsnow but still further it’s not going so well She doesn’t want anymore it was clear that no one was going tosay anything bad about either asbestos or more importantly the company thatmines it, URALASBEST.URALASBEST owns this city it patronizes, it’s academy, the health care system, football teams everyone’s livelihoodis depending on them it’s understandable that people who rely on a singleindustry for their support are not going to bite the side that feeds themwith negative observes so to find out where russia really stands on thehazards of asbestos we went to Moscow to speak to the head of the Russian Academyof Medical Science Dr. Kovalevski has Who’s been conducting research on proletarians in Asbest on behalf of the World Health Organization The people in Asbestlive right next to an open asbestos oppose quarry, Is this dangerous? Life is dangerous You have been studying the affects of asbestos exposure in Asbest since 2009, what has your research procured so far? The problemhowever is not that the research will take times but that the research itselfhas been called into question by a group of acclaimed scientists like Dr.ArthurFrank, who have petitioned the World Health Organization to end their relationshipwith Dr. Kovalevski over ethical questions surrounding his ties to theRussian asbestos manufacture a wealthy and powerful business that is alive and wellin spite of well-documented health risks In russia they have stopped recordingmesothelioma separately as a type of cancer and have lumped it in with otherdiseases so that you no longer be able to identify mesotheliomas what we’velearned in public health is the absence of data doesn’t mean the absence ofdisease this is the same tactic that the tobaccocompanies exploited and saying we don’t know enough to say that tobacco is harmful wecertainly know enough about a chrysotile asbestos to say that it is harmful the fact that we’ve learned in the westthat asbestos use can cause mesotheliomas and that we’ve had an epidemic thatis continuing and will continue for a number of decades more is nothing like what we’re going to seein the developing world like India and China the Indians import a lot ofRussian asbestos and they will have the same epidemic of mesotheliomas and otherasbestos-related cancers as we’ve had in the West because they have not learnedthe lessons that we have that asbestos is harmful and that it should not be used
