Asbestos and other natural mineral fibres / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization
International Programme on Chemical Safety; WHO Task Group on Asbestos and other Natural Mineral Fibres ( 1986 )
Abstract

Reports the findings of a task group commissioned to review available data on asbestos and other natural mineral fibres and to assess the health risks associated with exposure. Because of the well-documented association between occupational exposure to asbestos and the development of serious disease, the book concentrates on the detection of points of inconsistency or consensus in the literature that can be used to develop a more precise understanding of health hazards. A section devoted to experimental work reviews the considerable body of toxicological data available from studies in animals and cell systems, emphasizing new findings that help elucidate the mechanisms of toxicity. The book also cites convincing evidence that erionite is an especially hazardous carcinogen
