International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health: An updated review on asbestos and related diseases in China | ARD OECs | Scoop.it

Published in the  International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health: "China is the world's top chrysotile consumer and second largest producer. Over a million people may be occupationally exposed, yet reliable disease statistics are unavailable and the national burden of asbestos-related disease (ARD) is not well known. Nevertheless, ARD prevalence, incidence, and mortality are expected to be high and will increase for many decades due to the volume of asbestos consumed historically, and a long latency period."
