- Occupational Exposure to Chrysotile Asbestos and Cancer Risk: A Review of the Amphibole Hypothesis. Stayner, Leslie T.; Dankovic, David A.; Lemen, Richard A. // American Journal of Public Health;Feb96, Vol. 86 Issue 2, p179
Objectives. This article examines the credibility and policy implications of the "amphibole hypothesis," which postulates that (1) the mesotheliomas observed among workers exposed to chrysotile asbestos may be explained by confounding exposures to amphiboles, and (2) chrysotile may have lower...
- Epidemiology of Malignant Mesothelioma—An Outline. Mcdonald, J. Corbett // Annals of Occupational Hygiene;Nov2010, Vol. 54 Issue 8, p851
