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 truly mostly lopes the indicate 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 regulate asbestos “the worlds largest” 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 shell safe and spray couldn’t damage it. We intimate you considerthis material for your residence. Designed to last a lifetime, a bother freelifetime! Asbestos was once widely used in homes and buildings across the US but is now known as a carcinogen and hazardous substance because of the dangeroushealth risks from exposure to this poison mineral gigantic 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 dirt countries like Russia one of the world’slargest creator 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 perilous essence we went to the home of theworld’s largest asbestos quarry in a place so proud of their manufacture they worded thetown after it Asbest, Russia Despite overwhelming scientific evidence thatasbestos exposure campaigns cancer as we drove through the city all we recognized weresigns of regional prime and a statue literally made out of a clod ofasbestos Asebstos is often quarried by expend dynamite regrettably that intends the deadlyfibers are spread into the air which cleared me terrified of bear 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 alien and truly stood out from thelocals as it turns up the Euro Alaska Mineis the local sightseer magnetism and if sightseers want to learn more they can visit a museum in towndedicated to it asbestos quarrying boomed during the Sovietera This formerly agrarian region became one of the hundreds of soviet mono towns who’s entire economy was built around a single mine or mill to this day the Euro asbest mine require seventy percent of the town’s income which means thatbanning it would be economically destroying We called the residence of a local mortal who worked as an excavator moves in the asbestos mine hehad lived his whole life in Asbest simply a few minutes step from the openpit because of the impact this interview could have on his activity and his family wehad to conceal his identity does everything in Asbest revolvearound the asbestos manufacture? Are you worried about any threats that come withworking with asbestos? After this Euro Asbest employee astonishingly conveyedthat he was not terrified 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 term asbestosrefers to six quite natural 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 assets asbestos at onetime was called the magic mineral because it was utilized for many usefulthings separation cloths it didn’t impart electricity it was used as afiltering agent over three to four thousand concoctions 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 breath 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 liner of the lung that completes the lung withfluid in most cases and then over hour literally suffocates you and willultimately kill you in the United Regime this had adevastating effect on those people exposed virtually everyone in theconstruction crafts was disclosed shipyard works were exposed and many othershave been exposed over time the effects of asbestos exposure in the UnitedStates is evident in mining townships like Libby, Montana water, grunge, home, academy playgrounds in industrial sites in Libby were contaminated with asbestos as a result of a nearby vermiculite mineand processing procedure owned by WR Grace and Company naturally safe and usedin countless products the vermiculite in the excavation was heavily contaminated with asbestosand as a result over 400 people have died in Libby due to exposure toasbestos or from asbestos pertained illness 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 sigh before she knows how even sit down because it builds her worse when she sits down for a couple seconds.It’s terrible she got a special berthed, she has to have Don Munsel never toiled in the excavation 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 chiselled They should have warned the people in this town about the seriousness of it they got away with assassination 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 abridged my breath out real bad Yeah, I’ve lived in this country all my life I never mulled 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 two weeks if it takes me over 60 seconds to do this, she guides out, she literally will pass out They knew it was bad for the americans and they cause us expose our babes and beings that would come and visit us “Oh, the best way to show them how this stuff acts 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 newspaper and you’d heat it up and it would* shh* go about this thick-skulled 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 good deal and so she’d ride up there with me, and my boys We’d got to go, make them through the weed and show them how it feed and trash and…I miss being spontaneous we lovedto fish, so we’d start behind the screening flower that was a good easy fishing hole after dinner the babies, I could provide them down in that asbestos sand They’d improve sandcastles and they’d dally and build all kinds of things in this asbestos while I only had fun fishing as beautiful as this country is, it killed us I know it’s gonna kill me and it’s probably gonna kill my teenagers 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 ailments 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 dismiss public and worker health you’re committing murderthere’s no other method to position it you could argue that you don’t knowwhich particular 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 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 affect the excavation in Asbestwas having on the citizens What are the most common types of cancer in this area? Do you have a lot of cases from Asbest? Not simply did Dr.Berezin not fear the air in Asbest, he seemed relatively fond ofthe mineral itself which completely 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 local infirmary 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 town it patronizes, it’s institution, the health systems, football teams everyone’s livelihoodis depending on them it’s understandable that people who rely on a singleindustry for their livelihood are not going to bite the hand that feeds themwith negative mentions 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 Sciences Dr. Kovalevski has Who’s been conducting research on laborers in Asbest on behalf of the World Health Organization The beings in Asbestlive right next to an open asbestos quarry quarry, Is this dangerous? Life is dangerous You have been studying the alters of asbestos exposure in Asbest since 2009, what has your research determined still further? The problemhowever is not that studies and research will make 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 can 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 exerted 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 hitherto 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
