There is a chapter entitled "Asbestosis: The Chemistry of the Dust and of the Pulmonary Pathology."
This chapter is about 11 pages.
This chapter discusses Amosite, Crocidolite (blue), and Chrysotile asbestos.
Carcinogenic properties and mesothelioma cancer is mentioned.
One quote says, "This may explain the association of blue crocidolite with pleural (and sometimes peritoneal) mesothelioma."
It also says: "Asbestos, or a material associated with it, appears to be carcinogenic, but the chemistry of this is by no means yet clear."
"More and more cases of mesothelioma of the pleura or peritoneum are being reported in cases of asbestosis."
