Subject: the death of pyroxylin coated book cloths

I have a friend who needs information on why pyroxylin is no longer used
for coating book cloths. (She knows it is now considered BAD, but doesn't
know WHY.) Does anyone have helpful sources, web sites, or general
information on this subject? Any input would be appreciated.
