But the fitness fanatic told The Mercury while he enjoys the challenge of each individual race, he found the Tasmanian course to be chilly. Right about now I need ice, a hot bath and food. It was a cold, blustery event today and I kept my beanie and gloves on, he said. Mr Morrow will travel to Dunedin on Friday ahead of competing in Sundays Moro Marathon. He plans to run in five more events to finish his quest in October. WAs asbestos kids got a life sentence Theywere even used in peoples backyards,where, of course, children often played PERTH: People exposed to asbestos as children in a Western Australia mining town are developing cancers and dying sooner than the general population. An Australian study, published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine, is the first to look at the longterm health of children from Wittenoom in WA, which closed after the deadly blue asbestos mine shut in 1966. The study found girls up to the age of 15 who lived in Wittenoom had higher death rates and were more likely to develop the asbestos-related disease mesothelioma, and ovarian and brain cancers. Boys who lived in the town between 1943 and 1966 when the mine was in operation had higher rates of mesothelioma, leukaemia, prostate, brain and colorectal cancer. They also had circulatory and nervous system diseases and excessive death rates, the study found. The Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) study found 2460 Wittenoom children had been exposed to the asbestos before the age of 15. By the end of 2007, 228 of them had died from a range of causes. WAIMR Associate Professor Alison Reid said tail ings from the mine were used throughout the town in roads, pavements, carparks, and school playgrounds. They were even used in peoples backyards, where, of course, children often played, Prof Reid said. We will continue to follow this group to provide important information on the longterm implications of exposure to asbestos during childhood, she said. Forced adoption apology SYDNEY: Mothers who had their children taken from them under forced adoption policies are being encouraged to attend NSW Parliament later this month to hear an official apology. NSW Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward said yesterday the Gov ernment would say sorry in both Houses on September 20. She urged mothers, fathers and people who were victims of the policies to attend and begin the healing journey. Anyone wanting to attend should telephone 1800 003 227 or visit www.facs.nsw.gov.au.
