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 actually basically flows the support 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 hold asbestos the most notoriousindustrial carcinogen known what can you see? asbestos is a remarkable mineralactually stone, it is made up of tiny but extremely strong and resilient fibers itwas absolutely burn safe and ocean couldn’t damage it. We hint you considerthis material for your dwelling. Designed to last a lifetime, a hurt freelifetime! Asbestos was once widely used in homes and houses across the US but is now known as a carcinogen and hazardous substance because of the dangeroushealth risks from exposure to this lethal mineral huge endeavor 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 field 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 element we went to the home of theworld’s largest asbestos quarry in a lieu so proud of their manufacture they worded thetown after it Asbest, Russia Despite overwhelming technical evidence thatasbestos exposure begins cancer as we drove through the town all we visualized weresigns of neighbourhood prime and a statue literally made out of a clod ofasbestos Asebstos is often mined by apply dynamite regrettably that planneds the deadlyfibers are spread into the air which represented me startled of stay close tothe pit without full protective paraphernalium when I turned up wearing what’s legallyrequired in the USA and Europe I was almost like an foreigner and actually 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 cities who’s entire economy was built around a single mine or mill to this day the Euro asbest excavation accommodate seventy percent of the town’s income which means thatbanning it would be economically devastating We toured the residence of a local boy who worked as an excavator operators in the asbestos mine hehad lived his whole life in Asbest really a few minutes path from the openpit because of the impact this interview could have on his task and his family wehad to conceal his identity does everything in Asbest revolvearound the asbestos manufacture? Are you worried about him any mishaps that come withworking with asbestos? After this Euro Asbest employee astonishingly conveyedthat he was not fearful 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 esteemed epidemiologist Dr.Arthur Frank the call asbestosrefers to six quite natural minerals chrysotile represent one of them itis the only serpentine form the other five are called amphiboles they arestructurally different but medically have the same qualities asbestos at onetime was called the magic mineral because it was utilized for countless usefulthings insulation cloths it didn’t deport energy it was used as afiltering agent over three to four thousand produces alone and the UnitedStates one time had asbestos. It was a wonderful material regrettably it alsokilled people what happens when you’re exposed is you both inhale it and youingest it. The asbestos has the ability to alter the nucleus of the cells so thatthese cells now become cancerous get a lung cancer or the disease we callmesothelioma this cancer of the lining of the lung that crowds the lung withfluid in most cases and then over season literally suffocates you and willultimately killing yourself in the United Regime this had adevastating effect on those people exposed essentially everyone in theconstruction commerces was uncovered shipyard proletarians were exposed and many othershave been exposed over period the effects of asbestos exposure in the UnitedStates is evident in mining towns like Libby, Montana water, grime, dwelling, school playgrounds in industrial locates in Libby were adulterated with asbestos as a result of a nearby vermiculite mineand processing functioning owned by WR Grace and Company ordinarily safe and usedin numerous commodities the vermiculite in the quarry was heavily contaminated with asbestosand as a result over 400 beings have died in Libby due to exposure toasbestos or from asbestos pertained diseases She comes down here in her go-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 gulp before she knows how even sit down because it stimulates her worse when she sits down for a duet seconds.It’s terrible she got a special bunked, she has to have Don Munsel never acted in the mine himself. His stepfather did and the asbestos dust in the clothes he brought back from cultivate was enough togive Don severe mesothelioma I just think I’ve been misled They should have warned the people in this town about the seriousness of it they got away with murder I didn’t think I’d ever get it cause i neverworked there but I did I gotta stand up a little bit and all this talking even abbreviated my breather out real bad Yeah, I’ve lived in this country all my life I never thought this would happen to me These five containers last-place two weeks And now that she’s up on eight I don’t even think it’ll last-place two weeks if it takes me over 60 seconds to do this, she legislates out, she literally will pass out They knew it was bad for us and they cause us expose our babies and parties that would come and visit us “Oh, the best way to show them how this trash toils is to pop it for them” So you get a little piece of paper, a little piece of the ore, vermiculite and “it wouldve been” no bigger than a slice of your article and you’d heat it up and it would* shh* go about this thick-witted 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 trip up there with me, and my babies We’d got to go, make them through the plant and was an indication how it lope and substance and…I miss being spontaneous we lovedto fish, so we’d depart behind the screening plant that was a good easy trawl excavation after dinner the babies, I could set them down in that asbestos sand They’d develop sandcastles and they’d play-act and build all kinds of things in this asbestos while I only 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 children and spouse 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 disregard public and worker health you’re give murderthere’s no other road to give it you could argue that you don’t knowwhich special work 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 those 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 pit 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 merely did Dr.Berezin not fear the aura in Asbest, he seemed quite fond ofthe mineral itself which wholly contradicts what oncologists in the Westwould have to say about asbestos That’s asbestos! and you can just touch it like that? It’s not dangerous? 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 infirmary in Asbest to see if anyone there would speak out our fixer is trying to talk to one of the patientsnow but so far 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 sponsors, it’s school, the health system, football teams everyone’s livelihoodis will vary depending on them it’s understandable that people who rely on a singleindustry for their support are not going to bite the mitt that feeds themwith negative notes so to be informed about where russia really stands on thehazards of asbestos we went to Moscow to speak to the head of the Russian Academyof Medical Discipline Dr. Kovalevski has Who’s been conducting research on works in Asbest on behalf of the World Health Organization The parties in Asbestlive right next to an open asbestos cavity mine, Is this dangerous? Life is dangerous You have been studying the feigns of asbestos exposure in Asbest since 2009, what has your research located still further? The problemhowever is not that studies and 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 circumventing his ties to theRussian asbestos industry 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 mounded 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 worked 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 yet 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
