Am quite inpressed as to be said is very comprehensive and covers everything

Am sure given such comprehensive list a cure would not be that far behind.

Yer thats what i forgot this not much on misdiagnosis maily effusions

What i have discoverd is gp's doctors dont really ask you or want to know about your work history .. quite incidental

Take me for example am doing STORY on Foundries yep old steel works WHY becouse my grandad diead of emphysema when he was 42 and i worked in one when i industrial cleaner.

As part of my research i was shocked to fined foundry sand is 100% silaca with asbestos binder taconite .. classed as airbourn thrilling one could say BUT like most think days of foundriers are world dickings times away.

You would be so wrong as Portlant cement is wast product from foundries

Adressing causes is in my opinion as as good as cure

Great post
