Asbestos has been highlighted in recent years as a major health hazard; it is expected to cause an estimated 50,000 deaths in the next 30 years in Britain and many thousands in the U.S. But asbestos is by no means the only dust with known pathogenic effects: metal, china clay, talc, and cotton are some of the many other sources of hazardous dust. This work provides an up-to-date picture of research on the hazards of inhaled dust, describing the progress of knowledge in the field and areas in which future studies are needed. Because of widespread interest, the discussions cover a broad range of issues, including the properties of hazardous dust materials, dust-related diseases and experimental research, related occupational and environmental hazards, epidemiological evidence quantifying the hazards of dust sources, and much more.
