In reply to Asbestos was in so many areas of homes before by Moderator, Steve on February 15th, 2002 04:49 PM [Go to top of thread]

Older versions of "Popcorn" used vermiculite for the texture which could sometimes be contaminated with asbestos. There was a story in the news last year about a vermiculite mine in the west somewhere where the workers had been showing up with asbestosis, the compication that leads to cancer. If I undersand it correctly, vermiculite and asbestos are often found together, causing one to be laced with the other.

Just FYI
