In our academic search premier database, you'll need to start by doing a general search for brown lung disease. Notice that you only find a few results. This is a good indicator that there is a more commonly used or official term for this disease. Now, click on one of the articles and see what subject terms are listed to describe the article.

It looks like byssinosis and "cotton dust" are two more common terms associated with this disease. You also want to know how you would find out about health hazards, government policies, and other specific issues related to this disease. Instead of trying to search for each of these terms individually, stick with a broader search on byssinosis because most articles will talk about multiple aspects of the disease.
