Electromotive phenomenon in metal and mineral particulate exposures: relevance to exposure to asbestos and occurrence of cancer.
Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1971 Oct; 32(10):653-661
Tissue responses to exposures to metals in asbestos (1332214) is discussed. Supporting data is presented relating carcinogenicity of asbestos to high concentrations of biologically active metals at localized tissue sites. The author concludes that a better understanding of the relationship of the electromotive phenomenon in metals to exposure and biologic response to metals and minerals is required in order to develop appropriate standards for exposure controls.
