|3.||Noonan CW, et al. (2006).||In a case-control study of Libby, Montana (a community with historical occupational and environmental exposure to asbestos-contaminated vermiculite), our preliminary findings support the hypothesis that asbestos exposure is associated with systemic autoimmune diseases.||Asbestos | vermiculite||Subjects with disease:Arthritis, Rheumatoid | Controls for disease:Autoimmune Diseases | Subjects with disease:Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic | Subjects with disease:Scleroderma, Systemic||United States||Details||Autoimmune Diseases|

|5.||Molla YB, et al. (2014).||The precise trigger of podoconiosis (endemic non-filarial elephantiasis of the lower legs) is unknown, but epidemiological studies have linked the disease with barefoot exposure to red clay soils of volcanic origin; more quantities of smectite, mica, and quartz within the soil were associated with podoconiosis prevalence.||mica | Quartz | Smectite||Study subjects||Ethiopia||Details||Elephantiasis|
