Unlike various forms of "miner's lung" like silicosis, asbestosis, coal pneumoconiosis (black lung) etc, there's not really a classification of "cadmiosis" as a disease, because inhaling anywhere near enough cadmium dust to cause a chronic degenerative lung disease will kill you in hours from the acute effects, not years.
