Read What you should know about chrysotile white asbestos.

There are two types of asbestos in the world: amphibole and chrysotile. There is proof that some amphibole types cause lung cancer. But chrysotile is not dangerous because we can get rid of it from the body if we take a breath of air contaminated with chrysotile,” When they make roofing tiles mixing chrysotile with cement,  makes it much safer than any substitutes. Russian roofing material made out of chrysotile white asbestos are technically different from what is produced in the West.

Developing countries are the large market for chrysotile white asbestos. Substitutes for white asbestos, such as polyvinyl-alcohol (PVA) fibre, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and cellulose, which are produced in the European Union, are much more expensive.

That’s why we see a lot of anti-chrysotile rhetoric is from the EU and USA and also from locally promoted anti-chrysotile rhetoric by Maharajah group which stands to benefit if chrysotile imports are banned. Meanwhile consumers, who have limited finances, will lose benefits,

Chrysotile helps make roofing tiles more durable as well as resistant to heat and humidity. The ore is also cheaper than other substitute materials.

Sergey Kashanskiy, a candidate of medical science and head of the Labour Hygiene Laboratory of the Yekaterinburg Medical Research Centre for Prophylaxis and Health Protection in Industrial Workers, said white asbestos had been proved to be the safest ore used in the industry without any effect that causes any disease in a given situation. There is no scientific proof that chrysotile is a cause of lung cancer, he said.

Russia, which has the world’s largest geological reserves of asbestos, mines about a million tons of asbestos a year and exports about 60 percent of it. Demand is still strong for asbestos in China and India, where it is used in insulation and building materials. The Russian Chrysotile Association, an asbestos industry trade group, reports that annual sales total about 18 billion rubles, or $540 million. And the business is growing, mostly because other countries are getting out of the business.

The trade association says that the type of asbestos mined in Russia, called chrysotile, is less harmful than other types. The United States, though, has tightly restricted its use. The country imports about 1,000 tons of asbestos, mainly from Brazil, for use in aerospace and automotive industries for items like clutch pads. They consider it dangerous but we consider it safe,” said the association’s spokesman, Vladimir A. Galitsyn. Russia has three research institutes dedicated to studying uses for asbestos.

Four countries including Russia have blocked a bid to add chrysotile asbestos to a list of dangerous substances subject to export restrictions, participants at a UN meeting in Geneva recently.

Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Zimbawe opposed listing the mineral also known as white asbestos, which health experts say causes cancer, on the Rotterdam Convention list, according to groups attending the Geneva meeting that wrapped up recetly.

India has long vehemently opposed adding chrysotile to the Rotterdam Convention list, but did not in the end join the four countries officially opposing its inclusion.

Ranil-Sirisena Government is brainwashed by their western handlers to such an extend that even  it can ruin our tea industry completely.
