I-Team: UNLV geologists ordered to keep quiet over asbestos

LAS VEGAS -- Two UNLV professors say they were intimidated by state health officials who ordered them to keep quiet about evidence of a possible threat to public health.

The initial discovery was made almost five years ago.

A research team that included two UNLV geologists found hints that asbestos deposits might be making people sick, but the findings were kept quiet after state officials threatened to drop the hammer on the researchers.

Was it scientific censorship? 

The I-Team put that question to state health officials as part of a week-long project, Nevada's Toxic Threat.

What was uncovered by these researchers could represent a major threat to public health. The evidence, so far, is preliminary but it is being taken seriously by other government entities.
