Asbestos : risk assessment, epidemiology, and health effects by Ronald F Dodson( )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complexities resulting from asbestos exposure and the resultant understanding of health-related effects require a working understanding of a multidisciplinary nature. The first edition of this book offered one of the first volumes that specifically brought specialists from different disciplines together to provide the reader with a single resource for answering complex questions regarding asbestos-related issues. The second edition expands the successful approach used in the first edition by adding additional chapters and expanding the content of the previous chapters to make this an all-inclusive thesis on the subject of asbestos and asbestos-related public health issues. Internationally recognized authors were invited to contribute sections where their expertise was brought together with that of other outstanding specialists into one cohesive document

Praise for the Previous Edition"The authors clearly have a very detailed understanding of the relevant laws and provide a comprehensive overview of the links between these and environmental health. (The book's) value lies in meeting the generalist needs of public interest groups, high school teachers, first year introductory undergraduate courses and, possibly, environmental health practitioners."--Progress in Physical Geography, Vol. 28, No. 4, 2004
A clinical assessment and lung tissue burden from an individual who worked as a Libby vermiculite miner( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: During its days of operation (1920s-1990), the world's largest source of vermiculite was extracted from a mine located near Libby, Montana. The material mined at this site was shipped for various commercial applications to numerous sites in the United States. There was a "fibrous" component with toxic potential within the vermiculite deposit that has resulted in "asbestos-like" diseases/deaths being reported in numerous studies involving miners as well as residents of the town of Libby. The present case involves the clinical assessments of an individual who worked at the mine from 1969 to 1990. He had no other known occupational exposures to fibrous materials. He developed a clinical picture that included "asbestos-like" pathological features and eventually an adenocarcinoma. The clinical assessment including radiographic features will be presented. The evaluation will also include the analytical evaluation of the fibrous/ferruginous body composition of the lung tissue. This is to our knowledge the first time such an extensive evaluation has been conducted in a vermiculite miner from Libby, Montana
