Although there is considerable epidemiologic evidence supporting the hypothesis that occupational silica exposure is associated with a variety of SAIDs, research regarding asbestos exposure and SAIDs has been much more limited.
Nevertheless, our findings of strong associations between asbestos and/or vermiculite exposure and risk of SAIDs remained robust after adjusting for objectively characterized pulmonary conditions that could be associated with asbestos exposure.
Asbestos exposure and SAIDs is a relatively novel avenue of research, so it is not expected that participants would overreport SAIDs because of a suspected association.
Better medical care could, in turn, result in a higher likelihood of being diagnosed with other conditions such as SAIDs. This concern is somewhat tempered by the fact that pleural abnormality, the asbestos-related condition that has been most strongly associated with asbestos exposure in this population, was not associated with reporting of SAIDs.
It is possible that some participants with SAIDs did not understand the screening questions and were inappropriately included in the pool of potential controls.
Recall bias is a possibility, and persons with chronic health conditions such as SAIDs could overreport past exposure to vermiculite.
