Abstract
EN
Collis and Yule 1 stated in 1933, that “silica is such a body poison as is lead, even though it exerts its maleficent influence, especially with regard to tuberculosis, mainly on the respiratory organs, through which it gains access to the body”. This statement invites us to question the editorial 2 entitled “The world is failing on silicosis” in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine. As clinicians, radiologists, toxicologists, and social scientists working on health hazards related to crystalline silica exposure, we delve beyond silicosis, to learn of other dangers associated with silica.
