Rheumatic complaints and pulmonary response to chrysotile dust inhalation in the mines and mills of Quebec. White, F., Swift, J., & Becklake, M. Canadian Medical Association Journal, 111(6):533–535, 1974.
abstract   bibtex   
In 1967 to 68, an age stratified random sample of 1069 current workers in Quebec asbestos mines and mills was surveyed. Questions concerning rheumatic complaints were included in a modified British Medical Research Council questionnaire used at that time, and on this basis, a rheumatic severity gradient was devised. No relationship could be detected between rheumatic complaints and pulmonary radiologic response to chrysotile dust exposure, despite implications in the literature that such a relationship might exist.
