The scientists have also reported that there is limited evidence that asbestos fibers can raise the risk bowel, stomach, or throat cancer.
It is already known that asbestos causes mesothelioma.
Based on all of these findings English doctors, charities, unions, and MPs are calling for the English government to create a 10 million pound center for asbestos related disease.
