According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it is "an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust."[1]

1. What is the couse of Pneumoconiosis? 2. How can it be prevented? 3. What are the symptoms? 4. How can affect in our body?

5. What are the treatment?

Statement of the Hypothesis
HO1: .A pneumoconiosis cause by inhalation of every fine silicate or quartz dust which is found in volcanic ash.
HO2: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is fairly easy to prevent. Most countries do not have any volcanoes or any other places where silica dust exposure is likely. In case you live in one of the countries that does, here are few ways how to prevent this disease:

Do not go in or near an active or non-dormant volcano. Do not expose yourself to silica dust for long periods of time. If or long periods of time, cease breathing. If you are in or near you do happen to be exposed to silica dust for a long period an active or non-dormant volcano, cease breathing. Avoid a place or places that contain volcanoes. Do not inhale volcanic smoke or ash, for it contains silica dust, which causes pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

HO3: The symptoms of pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis…...

It is a mollusk dominant in humid and subtropical habitat. It was introduced in the Philippines as potential source of food, in 1980 to 1982. However between 1983 and 988, this snail has tremendously increased over the years infested thirty-five (35%) of rice rowing areas in the Philippines. At first, many farmers raised the snails in their backyards. It was thought as a good alternative food source of local communities and additional income too.
