With a relative dying from asbestos related lung cancer here I am with Bangon on this 100%. Russia is the worlds main exporter of asbestos and Thailand is its third largest customer. Asbestos is used here not only in roof and floor tiles but in shoes, domestic appliances like toasters and ovens and other items Countries that ban its domestic use are actually increasing exports. China, India and Thailand are the top ranked consumers of this deadly product. The Thai Governments plan is - who knows !! PS: HS trains use both regenerative braking and friction brakes with asbestos brake pads.

Here the national health service has (under pressure from greedy industriials?) recently classified asbestos as not dangerous, because of lack of evidence! I hope all this 'big shot' officials will be dragged in front of the Courts soon, as PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE, for hundreds of cases of disabling asbestosis, and scores of dead Thai consumers!
