The asbestos industry in Thailand is using promotional T shirts to drive home its message “asbestos is good for you”. The T shirts show a toothpick with the words “A toothpick is more dangerous than asbestos”. It also claims only Chrysotile can be digested by the body and doesn’t accumulate.

The World Health Organisation in Thailand has issued a strong rebuttal to the claims.

The dangers of asbestos, in any form, including chrysotile (better known as white asbestos) are well known and documented.
