Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
Here is link to a great article that talks about Asbestos and its ability to alter the bodies immune system.
Having worked around and with asbestos for 29 years and having breathed and even ingested asbestos during my days when I actually removed the asbestos and was bathed in it daily. Also when I worked in the high rises in Los Angeles I only wore a half face respirator and the asbestos fibers would build up and the sweat and movement of the respirator resulted in the fibers and sweat dripping past the top seal at my nose and would end up dripping down into my mouth. I would often be spitting to try and get rid of it, but I know much of these fibers I ingested.
