    "Do you work in construction or do abrasive blasting? If so, here are some important facts you need to know: Since 1968, more than 14,000 workers in the U.S. have died from a disease called silicosis. In the U.S. each year more than 200 workers die with this disease while hundreds more become disabled. Many workers with silicosis are only in their thirties; some are as young as 22 years old. Many of them are unable to take care of themselves and their families. What is silicosis and how can you avoid or prevent it? This booklet will give you information about silicosis, what causes it, the symptoms, and the ways you can avoid developing the disease. This publication is duel printed in both English and Spanish." - NIOSHTIC-2
