the u.s. is one of the few industrialized nations that does n't have a higher standard of regulation for the smooth <unk> fibers such as <unk> that are classified as <unk> according to <unk> t. <unk> a professor of <unk> at the university of vermont college of medicine
more common <unk> fibers are <unk> and are more easily rejected by the body dr. <unk> explained

but you have to recognize that these events took place N years ago
it has no bearing on our work force today
