Despite claims by the asbestos industry that chrysotile asbestos is a benign, non-carcinogenic mineral, recent reports of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases in Bayulgil, Australia, conclusively show that exposure to chrysotile is linked to mesothelioma, asbestos, and other illnesses. The Bayulgil operation, run by a subsidiary of James Hardie, mined white chrysotile. Residents are now suffering from extraordinary levels of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases. The catastrophe rivals the massive public health disaster caused by W.R. Grace in Libby, Montana. The Australian reported the details.
