Hi all I was wondering if anyone who has a lung condition has ever worked in a factory which produces cotton wool, surgical products. As I keep searching for an answer as to why I have ILD it keeps being mentioned about working in environments which were particularly dusty. I worked back in the 80's operating machinery which made cotton wool balls and even though it was very heavy in the air with dusty particles no one was told of any risks from breathing this in. As no one knows what causes ILD I keep searching for an answer.
