UK Asbestos Death Rates Are Growing; Asbestos Science Seminar Next Week
The BBC reported today that asbestos-related disease is the largest single cause of work-related deaths in the UK, with annual deaths at around 2,000 per year. Why so many deaths in such a small country ? Much of the answer has to do with the amount of amphibole fiber use, according to Dr. Julian Peto, one of the world’s best epidemiologists. As mentioned before, Dr. Peto and other top scientists speak next week at this Perrin conference in Las Vegas. I’m looking forward to attending and learning more.
