It is my opinion that asbestos is not harmful except at very high concentrations. To my knowledge there isn't a single documented case of asbestosis resulting from mild exposures (such as would happen if you remove asbestos insulation from pipes). There are many many more cases of brown lung disease from cotton and you don't see the government banning cotton or reequiring special permits to dispose of it!!
