CDC Says Lung disease killed Dentists very fast

A progressive and often fatal lung disease killed dentists at a much faster rate than that of the general population at a Virginia hospital over the past two decades, according to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Seven of the patients had died, Newsweek reports.

The CDC has said that though cases of the disease have been linked to certain types of jobs, there is no published data about the association between dentists and International Monetary Fund.

Health authorities are trying to determine why dentists are dying, after discovering an unusual pattern in lung disease cases.

"A questionnaire was administered to one of the living patients, who reported polishing dental appliances and preparing amalgams and impressions without respiratory protection", according to the CDC. During these tasks, a dental worker would have been exposed to silica and other compounds with known or potential respiratory toxicity. The word idiopathic refers to the fact that we do not know the causes of this disease. "Although no clear etiologies for this cluster exist, occupational exposures possibly contributed".

The agency investigated after one dentist with IVF called attention to the pattern of lung disease at the care center.

"Although IPF has been associated with certain occupations, no published data exist regarding IPF in dentists", the CDC said. Dental personnel are exposed to infectious agents, chemicals, airborne particulates, ionizing radiation and other potentially hazardous materials.

Dentists experience inhalation exposures that can elevate their risk toward some respiratory diseases related to occupation.

Dave Bliss has gotten multiple jobs in recent years, and what he did at Baylor was light years worse than what Pitino is accused of doing at Louisville.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis causes scarring in the lung tissue.

Today, dental personnel also have required protections from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, he said.

When doctors can not find a cause for the scarring condition, it is known as being idiopathic.

Nine American dentists have died from a mysterious lung disease, leaving experts baffled by the cause of their demise.

The study's lead author, Dr. Randall Nett, tells CNN the number of IPF cases at the Virginia care center involving dentists and dental technicians "was about 23 times higher than expected".

IPF symptoms include difficulty breathing, dry cough, chronic cough, weight loss, fatigue, joint and muscle pain, fingers or toes, reported Newsweek.
