Minnesota – Asbestos Exposure –MesotheliomaRange Study

Four more cases ofmesothelioma found as part ofIronRange Taconite Workers Health Study

Taconite pellets/Wikipedia

Sixty-three former taconite mine workers inMinnesota diagnosed with job-relatedmesothelioma, including the recently identified cases.

Four more cases ofmesothelioma among former taconite mine workers inMinnesota have been announced by theMinnesota Department of Health, bringing the total to 63. The new cases emerged as part of a statewide cancer surveillance study and the more targeted Taconite Workers Health Study.

TheUniversity ofMinnesota launched the study of taconite miners in 2008 – several years afterMinnesota health officials observed excessively high rates ofmesothelioma among taconite mine workers. Taconite is a mineral relative ofamosite asbestos. About 69,000 people worked in the state's iron mining industry between the 1930s and 1982.

The health department first documented the high occurrence ofmesothelioma inMinnesotamine workers in 2003 beginning with 17 miners. The university began a random sampling of 1,200 former mine workers in summer 2009.

Mesothelioma is a rare, fatal form of cancer associated most often with  asbestos exposure. Health officials say it can take up to 50 years to developmesothelioma following exposure to asbestos.

Along with investigating the high rate ofmesothelioma among taconite workers, the Taconite Workers Health Study is also investigating the possible relationship between exposure to silica and asbestos with the development of lung, colon, pharyngeal, esophageal, laryngeal, and stomach cancers and non-cancerous respiratory illness.

The university is surveying the lung health of 800 spouses of miners as part of the study because they may have been exposed to dust brought home on workers' clothing.

Fox 21 News: Mesothelioma

A study to find out why a high number ofIron Range residents have died from a rare lung disease has seen good cooperation from retirees but needs more activetaconite workers to accept the call.

University ofMinnesota officials say they are halfway through testing the 1,200 taconite workers and 800 spouses they need to participate so the study reaches solid conclusions.

Former and current taconite industry workers from across the Range have been getting invitations to participate for nearly a year. So far, about

1,000 people have been tested.

“We’ve received fantastic cooperation from the retirees. But, halfway through where we need to be, we’re feeling like we need more respondents from the current work force,’’ said Diana Harvey, spokeswoman for the University’s School of Public Health.

Because the study is based on a random sample, people can’t volunteer. Harvey said it’s not clear why more active taconite workers haven’t responded to the invitations, which come in a plain white envelope from the university.

Invitations are sent to more people each month and will be sent until a full 2,000 people are tested.

Participation involves a medical office visit for a lung capacity test, chest X-ray, blood sample and medical history.

The results are confidential and are available to the person in about 30 days.

Study officials hope to finish the tests by August and have some conclusions by 2011, although it could be 2015 before a full report is available.

Mike Woods, who has worked at the Minntac taconite plant in Mountain Iron for nearly 17 years and is president of Local 1938 of the United Steelworkers of America, said he’s strongly urging anyone who gets an invitation to participate.

“This is our one shot to find to what’s going on with this problem. If we don’t get some answers now, we may never get them,” he said. “I don’t know why guys aren’t going in. … I’ve heard from some people they’re afraid the company will find out and that they’ll lose their job for cooperating. But that’s not true. The company supports this, as far as I know, and the whole thing is anonymous. Nobody knows but you and, if you want, your doctor.”

The university’s School of Public Health is leading the $4.9 million research study, funded by the state of Minnesota, to find out more about health issues of taconite workers on the Iron Range — especially lung ailments and specifically mesothelioma. The university’s Medical School, University of Minnesota Duluth and UMD’s Natural Resources Research Institute also are involved in the study.

The study is a deeper look into why a higher- than-average number of Iron Range residents have developed mesothelioma, a rare and always fatal lung disease always associated with silica and asbestos exposure. At least 63 people in the area have died from the disease, many times more than would be expected from the general population.

It’s hoped the research will determine the extent to which working in the taconite industry and exposure to dust from the taconite industry affects the health of workers.

The study also will look at other ailments that may be occurring in past and present taconite workers.

The effort also is pouring over tens of thousands of death certificates of former Iron Range miners to see if there are clues to widespread or reoccurring disease. Another effort is testing air in taconite plants and other locations across the Range to see what current workers are exposed to on the job.

“We’re still in the field on that as well,’’ Harvey said Monday.

In 2003, a state study concluded the cause of the lung disease was probably asbestos from commercial sources — boilers, furnaces and pipes — and not fibers that occur naturally in taconite iron ore. But critics say the study never seriously considered taconite as the source of the problem.

1000IronRange miners and their spouses have been screened for health study

Health Study Update

Posted at: 01/20/2010 8:46 AM -Minnesota

Around 1000IronRange miners and their spouses have been screened for the state-funded respiratory health study.

Researchers said that's half of what they need, and the study remains on track. Folks are being asked to continue responding to the recruitment letters.

The U of MN is spearheading a series of studies to find out if mining or taconit dust leads to health problems like the deadly cancer mesothelioma.

Analysis of the results of the respiratory study will take another 18 months.

Contaminated Soil CouldDerailMinneapolisPark Purchase

Updated: 01/18/2010 8:37 PM KSTP.com
By: Chris Keating and Becky Nahm

Contaminated soil could prevent the City ofMinneapolis from purchasing land for a new park that would link up parts of the popular Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway.

The Park Board has signed a $400,000 purchase agreement to buy the Scherer Lumber Yard on9th Avenue NE. The deal covers 14 acres on the east bank of theMississippi River.

Turning the area into a park would mean people could travel on the Grand Rounds from22nd Avenue NE throughSt.AnthonyFalls toMinnehahaFalls.

However, an October study found elevated levels of asbestos and lead on parts of the property. The study noted that, "if development is to occur, futher investigation would be necessary."

Park officials have seen the test results, but they want to get on the site and test the soil for themselves.

Judd Rietkert, the director ofMinneapolisPark planning said the city does have the option to terminate the deal.

The Parks Department has cleaned up other sites in order to turn them into parks, includingBoomIsland and the BF Nelson park.

EPA to test air for asbestos inNortheast Minnesota homes

The agency removed contaminated soil several years ago; it will now offer voluntary testing in 30 to 50 homes as a precaution.

By TOM MEERSMAN, Star Tribune

Last update: September 10, 2008 - 12:07 AM

You are usually better to leave it in place if possible

Once you start tearing into is when you will have an exposure. Asbestos as a solid piece is not a concern it is the fine particles or … read morefibers that are released once you start to do demo or remodeling work.

The air in several dozen homes in northeastMinneapolis will be tested for asbestos as part of the decade-long cleanup of pollution from an insulation factory, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced (EPA) Tuesday.

From 1938 to 1989, the W.R. Grace Co. and its predecessor, Western Mineral Products Inc., processed vermiculite ore fromMontana into home insulation. The factory gave away asbestos-laced waste for homeowners to use as fill in driveways, yards and gardens.

The EPA removed contaminated soil from 268 yards between 2000 and 2004. It has now decided to test the air and dust in 30 to 50 of those homes as a precaution.

"We have no evidence to suggest that indoor air of these homes has been impacted," said Mark Johnson, chief of theChicago office of the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which is a partner with the EPA in the research.

Kids of all ages used it

Terry Thiele, who lived around the corner from the plant during childhood, said he and many neighborhood kids played in the asbestos-laden material in the 1950s and 1960s, not knowing it was dangerous.

It was good for all ages, he said: Young children used it for sandboxes, older ones took wagonloads of it to build a baseball infield, and high-schoolers shoveled it into 5-gallon buckets to give their cars better traction in winter.

When told about the new study, Thiele said it's probably a good idea, but he doesn't expect officials to find much asbestos. "It came into our home through our clothing, and that was 40 or 50 years ago," he said. "It would surprise me if there's still traces from that anywhere."

Thiele, 61, ofMaple Grove, said that he and his siblings and mother all have asbestosis to some degree and that his father died from mesothelioma. "My whole family has lung X-rays that look like patchwork quilts because of all the scarring" from the fibers, he said.

A rare survival story in a brush with a rare and deadly cancer

Minnesota woman winning battle with Mesothelioma cancer

 

 

M.K Smith, Star Tribune

Heather Von St. James, ofRoseville, found she had mesothelioma when her daughter Lily was a newborn. “I claim cured,” she says of her faceoff with a killer.

Heather Von St. James calls herself "the poster child for hope after meso." She has been disease free for 2 1/2 years after a radical surgery and treatment for the asbestos-related cancer -- mesothelioma.

By PAT PHEIFER, Star Tribune

Last update: August 27, 2008 - 12:44 AM

What a great story! May Heather continue to do well and never have to deal with mesothelioma again. Unfortunately, many people with … read moremesothelioma are not that lucky yet. Therefore, more funding is needed to research effective treatments for the disease so that it will hopefully be a treatable disease for all. People may be suprised to learn that asbestos is still imported and used in theU.S. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, theU.S. imported and used an estimated 1,820 tons in 2007, an estimated 84% for roofing materials. http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/pubs/commodity/asbestos/mcs-2008-asbes.pdf The U.S. House of Representatives is considering a bill to ban the future importation of use of asbestos (it is already banned in 40 countries) and to provide funding for research into effective treatments for asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma. You can tell your representative to support the bill from http://www.banasbestos.us or from https://forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.shtml To read move about mesothelioma, please go to http://www.curemeso.org Also, Friday, September 26, 2008 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day.

Dying was not an option, Heather Von St. James says as her 3-year-old daughter, Lily, rushes in and out of the dining room, climbing on her lap, then dashing off again. ¶ But dying was a terrifying possibility when doctors found a lump the size of an orange in Von St. James's left lung when Lily was only 3 months old. The diagnosis was mesothelioma -- a rare and often fatal form of lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.

Now, just over 2 1/2 years after undergoing radical surgery to remove her left lung, the lining around her heart, half of her diaphragm, her sixth rib and a few lymph nodes to be on the safe side, all traces of the cancer are gone.

"I claim cured," says Von St. James.

Dr. David Sugarbaker, who heads the International Mesothelioma Program at Brigham & Women's Hospital inBoston, said Von St. James is a shining example of the progress he is beginning to see in the fight against a disease that traditionally carried a maximum survival of 12 to 18 months.

"I am the poster child for hope after meso," the 39-year-oldRoseville woman said.

Sugarbaker, who treated Von St. James, is only slightly more circumspect. "What I can say is that right now in this present moment she is disease-free," he said.

About 2,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in theUnited States each year, according to the National Cancer Institute. Unusually high rates of the disease have been reported among men fromMinnesota'sIronRange since the late 1980s. The state Department of Health has so far identified 59 cases among mine workers and is planning a study with theUniversity ofMinnesota aimed at determining what might have caused the illness.

Sugarbaker said the disease has a 20- to 35-year latency period and traditionally has been diagnosed in people with direct exposure to asbestos, but doctors are seeing more patients with secondhand, nonoccupational exposure.

Von St. James believes her cancer was caused by childhood exposure to her father's asbestos-covered work clothes. Rollie Rosedahl, 66, of Spearfish, S.D., was a construction laborer for Ainsworth-Benning while Heather was growing up. Many of the products he worked with contained asbestos.

Von St. James said she was "a total daddy's girl" and often would shrug into her father's boots and coat to feed the rabbits they kept out back. "In that day and age it was just dust," she said. "We didn't know what it contained."

In December 2006, Von St. James sued Ainsworth-Benning and a dozen other companies, primarily manufacturers of the products that contained asbestos, in Ramsey County District Court. But last month, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled that she can't sue Ainsworth-Benning inMinnesota, saying the company doesn't have enough of a connection to the state.

Von St. James' attorney, Jessica Dean, said the suit was supposed to go to trial in September but was put on hold pending theAppeals Court ruling. Dean said she will ask the court to set a trial date, either for December or March.

'Is it cancer?'

The then-Heather Rosedahl moved to the Twin Cities in April 1998. Two months later she met Cameron Von St. James and it was "love at first sight." They married 10 months later and moved into his childhood home inRoseville to help his mother care for his ailing father. She managed an upscale salon inMinnetonka.

Just after Thanksgiving 2004, they learned she was pregnant. Von St. James gained only 5 pounds, but said her doctor wasn't concerned because "I'd always been a little on the larger side," she said. She noticed more pressure under her left breast and was short of breath but figured that was normal. Lily Rose Von St. James was born by C-section on Aug. 4, 2005.

Although Von St. James was exhausted when she returned to work part-time in August, she chalked it up to being a new mom. By October, when she returned full-time, she felt "like a truck was parked on my chest," she said.

Her shortness of breath worried her doctor. He ordered blood work, then a chest X-ray that showed fluid around her left lung.

"I said, 'Is it cancer?'" Von St. James recalled. "He goes, no, no, no, it can't be cancer. He thought it was pneumonia or something."

But the doctor was concerned enough to send her that afternoon to United Hospital in St. Paul to have the fluid drained and a CT scan performed.

"They sit me in this cold little waiting room and he [the doctor] comes back in and says, 'They found a mass.'

The next day, she returned for a needle biopsy. Pathologists sent the sample to the Mayo Clinic. On Nov. 21, Von St. James and her husband found themselves in Dr. James Flink's office atUnitedHospital.

"What you have is a cancer called mesothelioma," she recalled the doctor saying. "My husband said, 'Oh that's bad. That's the asbestos cancer.'"

Flink gave her options: Do nothing and live maybe 15 months, try chemotherapy and radiation and probably live five years, or go see Dr. Sugarbaker inBoston.

"My husband without blinking says get us toBoston," she said.

Von St. James underwent surgery on Feb. 2, 2006, was in the hospital for 18 days and stayed inBoston for a month. When Von St. James leftBoston, she moved in with her parents for two months. In May, she returned home and began chemotherapy -- every three weeks for 12 weeks.

This October will mark two years since the end of the treatments. Von St. James still goes toBoston every four months for a CT scan, but so far, the cancer has not returned.

"I'm going to be the first meso patient to live 50-plus years. I told my doctor he would retire before I did," she said. "And he's OK with that."
