  2. Congratulations Christina Paxson, a suggestion for Brown university. Medical science,technologists and herbalists should search for a way to remove Chrysotile Asbestos from within the entire human body. Their is lots of asbestos around and exposure to asbestos can cause cancer thus Brown University should find a way to remove asbestos from within the human body!.
