I don't know why so many people fall for this eco-nazi stuff. The only people that ever got asbestosis were working in the factories making the stuff. It was airborne and they were exposed to it for DECADES.
Why haven't we banned cotton? Ever hear of Brown Lung? It was a common disease similar to asbestosis that was gotten by the Souther textile workers.
Did you also know that when the world trade center fell there was literally tons of asbestos released into the air? The EPA actually admitted that the exposure was a "don't care".
