And just to add to Bill's excellent post.......your failing pipe insulation sounds like the the worst case scenario of the friable asbestos fibers located inside a residence where the fibers are easily spread and ingested/inhaled.............

Dad was a ship's electrician.....where they poured loose asbestos fibers into electrical junction boxes.......then removed the fibers 'by hand' to make repairs.....and yes his lungs were compromised by the exposure............More info?
