Silicosis is lung damage caused by breathing dust containing
extremely fine particles of crystalline silica. Crystalline
silica is found in concrete, masonry and rock.
Once inhaled, crystalline silica, can lead to one of three
types of silicosis: chronic, accelerated or acute. The disease
can cause also bronchitis and tuberculosis. Some scientists believe
it may also cause lung cancer.
