Flock Worker's Lung disease from polypropylene masks

  • From Ann Barnhardt site:

    "When polypropylene is inhaled in factories where it is manufactured, that is
    in factories in which workers are likely to inhale polypropylene fibers, it has
    the potential to result in an increased risk of a type of interstitial lung disease
    called Flock Worker’s Lung, named so because of the lung disease found in
    flocking plants. Atis et al studied workers employed in a flocking plant that
    used polypropylene (Eur. Respir J, 2005). They noted: “logistic regression
    analysis showed that the risk of respiratory symptoms increased 3.6-fold in
    polypropylene flocking workers when compared to controls…” they also
    measured CT scans in patients (which will show evidence of lung damage
    from interstitial lung disease) and noted that “high resolution CT scan in a
    limited number of subjects, are indicative of the beginning of or mild
    interstitial lung disease…” They also noted a significant decrease in carbon
    monoxide diffusing capacity in exposed workers vs controls, namely a 10
    point reduction from 85.6 to 75.8) which was highly significant (p=0.001). A
    decrease in diffusing capacity is a hallmark for lung damage, especially from
    interstitial lung disease. So, is it possible that prolonged use of facial masks
    or N-95 respirators, which contain polypropylene may increase the risk of
    long-term interstitial lung disease when one inhales the frayed fibers? To
    date, no one has raised the question."

  • Don't know about that but one risk already proven is the chance of catching Legionnaires from long term wearing

    Could you tell us where you learned about the Legionnaires connection?

  • All my life, all I ever wanted to do was sell polypropylene!  All my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, parents, and neighbors are In polypropylene!  What are we to do now?

    Maybe you can try polystyrene or polyethel-ine or poly-Mabel-ine or just plain Abilene

    Perhaps you missed the point.  Most of those cheap blue disposable masks people are wearing contain polypropylene, and polypropylene has been linked to lung disease.

    Methinks Sean’s post must be read with Monty Python glasses. Unless I am off base, at which point call the witch doctor. ;)

  • Not only that, they spray them with formaldehyde in the factory, and people are having facial reactions/breakouts.
