Even white asbestos is not considered safe ..though it is not so brittle as the blue .yet the effect of decay is powerful ..and the dangr to those working with the White asbestos is still there if the fibers break while handling ..Should we take this risk for to maintain this bilateral trade ? The effect of Asbestos takes about 10 years to impact and then we will wonder why our love ones are suffereng from lung disease ..Sad isn't it ? May be the Russian facory owners do not worry about those working to manufacture Asbestos .but us ?

What's the reason it banned and reason behind lifting? I heard since Russia imposed banned on tea , to lift that a mutual consent agreed on this.
