||A threshold for asbestos related lung cancer
||Aug. 1986, Vol.43, No.8, p.556-558. 28 ref.
||A review of the recent literature suggests that a threshold for increased risk of developing lung cancer exists for asbestos exposure, somewhere in the range of 25-100 fibres/cc years. Below this threshold there seems to be no excess risk of lung cancer.
