Description

In the California Sierra Nevada, the Sacramento Bee commissioned scientific testing of the region. In their research, they found a particularly hazardous kind of asbestos in dust raised along roads and settled inside houses of the commuter communities, about 15 miles from California's capital. Even a few months' exposure to these needle-like fibers could induce a fatal chest cancer decades later, lung disease experts said.
