This is an older video from Vice about the origin, effects and the continual use of asbestos related products throughout the world. Now illegal in Australia there are still many countries continuing to use asbestos in building materials.
“ Despite irrefutable scientific evidence calling out the dangers of asbestos, 2 million tons of the carcinogen are exported every year to the developing world, where it's often handled with little to no regulation.
For this episode of VICE Reports, correspondent Milène Larsson traveled to the world's largest asbestos mine in the eponymous town of Asbest, Russia, to meet workers whose livelihoods revolve entirely around the dangerous mineral.
