What is the most common sickness that coal miners get?

    I would probably have to say it’s the black lung disease just because it’s extremely common for coal miners to get. Other sicknesses include chronic heart and kidney diseases. Please keep in mind that it’s not only the coal miners who can easily contract these diseases, but also residents who live near a coal mine.

    I also believe that black lung is the most common disease coal miners get. It is a form of pneumonia. For some miners it remains a minor problem, for others develops into progressive massive fibrosis. It is also known as anathracosis or silicosis.

    One in twenty coal miners in the US can be diagnosed with black lung disease using Xrays, making it the most common for them.
