Stunning editorial calling for ban on chrysotile asbestos
The linked article is an extremely powerful editorial by Prof. Gilles Paradis of McGill in the Canadian Journal of Public Health (just published in spite of the Sept/Oct date).
It is a call to arms to Quebec’s public health organisations to stop the Jeffrey mine and to demand a ban on the mining and export of chrysotile asbestos.
It virtually calls the export of asbestos to developing countries a racist policy.
“There is an ethical imperative for Public Health Organizations and professionals, and in particular for Quebec’s public health leaders, to become more vocal and active in the fight against chrysotile asbestos and to unite behind a common goal of banning production and export of all asbestos.”
