A recent report discusses the controversy over asbestos mining in Canada, which reportedly caters to high-demand places like India.
India (Mesothelioma Cancer News) – A recent report on Canada asbestos mining examined the growth in demand for the toxic mineral in places like India. As reported by TheStar.com, controversy has ensued over a resurgence in Canadian asbestos mining despite its widely known health risks.
As noted in the report, India is number one of the list of importers of Canadian asbestos. Legislation was previously being considered to outlaw the mining of asbestos in the country, but talks about the issue have reportedly decreased with some suggesting mines have been depleted, and there is no major threat. However, others have expressed strong disagreement of that notion, and are seeking more government action for the protection of the public on a global scale.
