Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Asbestos and Taconite

Research into the mineral taconite and its effects on health is under way at the University of Minnesota. Previous research has shown that mesothelioma in Iron Range where taconite is mined occurs at twice the rate as the rest of the state.

Researchers are now looking for a link between taconite and mesothelioma. Because the symptoms associated with taconite are so similar to those of asbestos, the research could lead to an expansion of the definition of asbestos that would include taconite.
