toxicologist insists crushed dolomite bad for health | gma news online

A toxicologist on Thursday contradicted the statements of the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) that crushed dolomite, like the one used in the Manila Bay beautification project, poses no health risks.

In a virtual forum by Oceana Philippines, Dr. Rommy Quijano said in justifying its controversial Manila Bay project, the DENR ignored scientific findings showing the potential health hazards of crushed dolomite.

Yung sinasabi nila na walang potential health defects yan ay hindi totoo yun. Tingin ko, dahil nga ginawa nila yan (Manila Bay project) na wala man lang consultation, dyina-justify na lang nila ang kanilang action, he said.

Hindi ko maintindihan bakit pati ang DOH ay nagsabi na ligtas naman daw yan. Samantalang noong una, nagsabi ang DOH na, yun nga, dahil sa respirable dust ay maaaring magkaroon ng respiratory disease, he added.

The health issue with the dolomite is not in the product anymore. It's already in the process during quarrying and processing. For the product itself, there will be no more health issue, Cuado said.

Cuado was quick to deny this: The dolomite composition is calcium and magnesium...So if you look at heavy metal compositions, there is no heavy metal present on the dolomite. We have already checked that, he told GMA News Online.

According to Cuado, a third party company already conducted an analysis on the composition of the dolomite that will be used on Manila Bay to make it appear that its shoreline is covered with white sand.
