Asbestos

Anyone had any major exposure to the stuff?

The stuff is still practically everywhere. In our homes, schools, hospitals.

This recent case just had me thinking.

    My father has a pile of asbestos sheets on the buildings on the farm.

    Changed 90% of them over now and ended up burying the rest of them in a deep hole as it would cost £1000's to have taken away properly.

    I moved to a new house and was an external seperate gargae and i wanted to take it down as was doing the house up. Any how council rocks up and basically said they had to come take it down and take it away and would cost me a fortune so had to wait for a big storm in the night when i all blew away

    Most kids are adventurous. Think about all the adventures you got up to when you were a kid. Breaking into places like old schools, warehouses, cricket pavilions etc. Smashing stuff up getting covered in dust and filth. There was probably asbestos in most things you touched. You probably breathed loads of the stuff in when you were a kid. 

    No point in worrying about it though.

    Well since nearly everyone will have been exposed to it guess we're all going to die from it? Never mind the  fact that past generations were exposed to it in quite high levels on a regular basis. You'd think when exposure is certain death that a lot more people would be dying from it. Hmmmmmm

    Thanks for that. I wasn't having a dig at u more at the hysteria that has been whipped up surrounding asbestos.
