||This article raises an alarm over the risks of a major comeback of asbestos. One of its types, chrysotile is portrayed as being innocuous. According to its defenders in Québec (Canada) and the Russian Federation, it does not possess sufficient bio-persistence (lifetime) to be carcinogenic. The article opposes this reasoning with the opinions of other specialists. It analyses the findings of articles put forward by the asbestos lobbies and concludes that they lack scientific rigour.
