Dangers of coal mining

some of the risks are black lung disease and coal dust explosions and more but these are the two I am going to focus on. black lung disease is gotten bye years of breathing coal dust into the lunges and builds up and is unable to be cleared out by the body. explosions are caused by particles of dust in air that some gets ignited. the explosions are the more common of the two disasters to happen. the affects of black lung are inflammation, fibrosis, and necrosis.
