A week before Trump took office, the EPA issued the chemical safety rule, which required industries to take steps to prevent disasters. Those included more analysis of safety technology, third-party audits, incident investigation analyses and stricter emergency preparedness.

They were not enforced so well before. Now, for dran sure, they are not. Trump will ignre. Like everything else
The federal courts aren’t powerless to enforce their edicts, Elsie. What’s more the union most EPA scientists belong to are pretty militant in their own right.
Great video, Nick. The first research evidence about the health risks of EMR came out about 10 years ago and it’s been extremely hard to get any media traction.
Interesting that fiberglass fibers and, other fibers do not cause mesothelima. Asbestos does.

Great point, Doug. I never thought of that. Is it the radiation effect?
Yes. All asbestos has radium in it. Asbestos gets stuck in endothelial tissue. It irradiates the local area, with alpha rays constantly.
Then, Voila, there is mesothelioma.
Sticky, jagged, irritating fibers, like fiberglass, are made from epoxy resin. They contain no radionuclides-no radium. Fiberglass-fibers, do cause fibrosis and lung damage. The damage can lead to fibrotic-lung damage and copd-emphysema in later years.
Young folks with light to heavy, asbestos exposure have mesothelioma in their twenties. Mesothelioma can effect any endothelial tissue: mouth, lungs, bronchia, colon. It is known to be incurable. What an awful legacy and precedent, Trump is setting!
