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 genuinely basically ranges the show 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 most notoriousindustrial carcinogen known what can you limit? asbestos is a remarkable mineralactually stone, it is made up of minuscule but extremely strong and adaptable fibers itwas absolutely fire safe and liquid couldn’t damage it. We show you considerthis material for your home. Designed to last a lifetime, a bother freelifetime! Asbestos was once widely used in homes and builds across the US but is now known as a carcinogen and hazardous substance because of the dangeroushealth risks from exposure to this harmful mineral gargantuan struggle 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 sand countries like Russia one of the world’slargest make of asbestos ours about a million tons of it a year and suppliesmore than half the world’s asbestos to find out why anyone would still working in collaboration with and sell such a hazardous essence we went to the home of theworld’s largest asbestos quarry in a sit so proud of their industry they mentioned thetown after it Asbest, Russia Despite overwhelming scientific evidence thatasbestos exposure makes cancer as we drove through the city all we assured weresigns of regional prime and a statue literally made out of a hunk ofasbestos Asebstos is often quarried by utilize dynamite regrettably that signifies the deadlyfibers are spread into the air which realized me startled of platform close tothe pit without full protective gear when I turned up wearing what’s legallyrequired in the USA and Europe I felt like an foreigner and genuinely stood out from thelocals as it turns up the Euro Alaska Mineis the local sightseer allure 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 factory to this day the Euro asbest pit afford seventy percent of the town’s income which means thatbanning it would be economically ravaging We inspected the residence of a regional soul who worked as an excavator operators in the asbestos quarry hehad lived his whole life in Asbest just a few minutes saunter 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 lucks that come withworking with asbestos? After this Euro Asbest employee surprisingly 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 term asbestosrefers to six naturally occurring 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 numerous usefulthings separation fabrics it didn’t deport electricity it was used as afiltering agent over three to four thousand makes 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 cells so thatthese cadres 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 go literally suffocates you and willultimately killing yourself in the United State this had adevastating effect on those people exposed essentially everyone in theconstruction business was disclosed shipyard works were exposed and many othershave been uncovered over epoch the consequences of asbestos exposure in the UnitedStates is evident in mining towns like Libby, Montana water, grime, dwelling, clas playgrounds in industrial sites in Libby were contaminated with asbestos as a result of a nearby vermiculite mineand processing enterprise owned by WR Grace and Company naturally safe and usedin numerous makes the vermiculite in the excavation was heavily contaminated with asbestosand as a result over 400 beings have died in Libby due to exposure toasbestos or from asbestos related 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 breather before she can even sit down because it impels her worse when she sits down for a couple seconds.It’s terrible she got a special bunked, she has to have Don Munsel never succeeded in the pit himself. His stepfather did and the asbestos dust in the clothes he brought back from direct 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 slaying I didn’t think I’d ever get wise cause i neverworked there but I did I gotta stand up a little bit and all this talking even abbreviated my wheeze out real bad Yeah, I’ve lived in this country all “peoples lives” I never anticipated this would happen to me These five barrels last two weeks And now that she’s up on eight I don’t even think it’ll last two weeks if it takes me over 60 seconds to do this, she extends out, she literally will pass out They knew it was bad for us and they cause us expose our babes and parties that would come and visit us “Oh, the best way to show them how this substance makes 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 paper 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 great deal and so she’d trip up there with me, and my children We’d got to go, take them through the flora and show them how it move and material and…I miss being spontaneous we lovedto fish, so we’d continue behind the screening seed that was a good easy fish puncture after dinner the babes, I could provide them down in that asbestos sand They’d improve sandcastles and they’d gambling and build all kinds of things in this asbestos while I exactly had recreation fishing as beautiful as this country is, it killed us I know it’s gonna kill me and it’s probably gonna kill my children and husband 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 scientific and technological communities 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 disdain public and worker health you’re dedicate murderthere’s no other mode to throw it you could argue that you don’t knowwhich special laborer 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 all 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 merely 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 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 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 sponsors, 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 support are not going to bite the handwriting that feeds themwith negative statements 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 beings in Asbestlive right next to an open asbestos quarry excavation, Is this dangerous? Life is dangerous You have been studying the affects of asbestos exposure in Asbest since 2009, what has your research knew 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 bordering 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 exercised 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
