In brief: Dust lung disease

Most often these are due to a person's work though many of the people who survived the 9/11 attacks.
Coal worker's lung, silicosis, asbestosis, farmer's lung, berylliosis, and bagassosis (sugar cane) are all examples. They are hard to treat and if present, a lawyer may be able to help.
