Why is it important?

Breton Bioquartz® is the final solution to Silicosis.

Silicosis is a long-term lung disease caused by inhaling unsafe levels of silica dust, usually over a period of many years. This disease can lead to breathing problems, a serious lung condition called Progressive Massive Fibrosis (PMF), or lung cancer.

Today, there is no cure for silicosis and that is why Breton developed this alternative raw material.
