The founder of the McIntyre (MICK-in-tire) Powder Project has now published her findings in the United States.
Janice Martell founded the project in 2015, which is a voluntary registry of over 500 affected miners to document health issues who were exposed to McIntyre Powder aluminum dust in their workplaces in the later half of the 1900s.
The work requirement has been recognized as a leading cause of ailments and even death in miners and other industries around the globe, thanks to her efforts.
She says the article is important in acknowledging those workers.
Martel says the article that was published in August in New Solutions: A Journal of Environmental and Occupational Health Policy, out of California and the information will be distributed throughout medical circles for the benefit of physicians and patients alike.
Her co-author, Dr. Tee Guidotti, is an internationally recognized expert on occupational diseases, particularly lung diseases.
