PULMONARY FIBROSIS AND EXPOSURE TO ALUMINUM PARTICULATES
Research published by Masalkhi A, Walton SP.:
"Many reports of respiratory disease attributable to aluminum exposure have appeared in the European medical literature during the last 50 years. Great Britain and Germany are two major industrialized nations that acknowledge a causal relationship between ... exposure to aluminum and respiratory impairment. For factory workers in these countries, pulmonary disease attributed to RESPIRABLE ALUMINUM PARTICULATES is compensated as a workplace disability. We describe a patient whom we believe developed severe respiratory compromise and irreversible pulmonary fibrosis from ...[inhaled] aluminum [particulate ] exposure."
