Sample text

Flax byssinosis occurs mainly but not exclusively in those preparing flax for spinning. After a number of years of exposure the worker begins to experience chest symptoms on a Monday. These are tightness in the chest, breathlessness and a cough. The symptoms get worse as the day goes on.
