Abstract

IN a recent letter1 Prof. H. V. A. Briscoe and collaborators report on some work done in connexion with the solubility of quartz and other dusts. Speculating on the practical indications of their results, they suggest that “admixture of a dust such as that of fresh cement... might well serve to mitigate the effects of dangerous (that is, silicosis-producing) dusts”.
