    Phew! I'll sleep better now. Meanwhile UK folk be on the lookout for lurking azzy. I remember being assaulted by an errant piece of falling azzy soffit board once. Dangerous stuff.

    Anyone else genuinely interested can Google "asbestos in vermiculite".

    Goodbye.

    Not absolutely correct - a friend of mine (a decco) died a few years back of mesothelioma. They reckon it was contracted because of the amount of old Artex ceilings and walls he'd dusted-off with his little dusting brush over the years. Nasty way to die, but no real clouds of dust. Then what about the wives and kids of men who worked in industry and brought the dust home on their work clothes which were then washed and hung in the home..... I have installed Asbestolux fire boarding - where we hand sawed, used no masks and came home every day white form head to foot - so should I worry? (Answer: I don't - if it gets me, it gets me, but I take a lot more care these days)

    so now you claim you meant

    "One teacher died of asbestosis,and they did not wander around in clouds of it."

    Where did you hear that?

    here's a bit of Factual Information for you


    ...if you can cope with it.


    "SOC major group (1-digit)


    Among males major group 5 (Skilled trades occupations) was the only major group with statistically significantly elevated mesothelioma mortality (PMR=161.5, 95% CI: 154.9,168.2), with 2275 deaths amongst those aged 16-74 for the period 2011-15.


    This major group contains a number of more specific codes with significantly elevated PMRs, including the only two elevated 2-digit codes, six of the seven highest ranking 3-digit codes and the 1st (5315 Carpenters and joiners), 3rd (5314 Plumbers and heating and ventilating engineers), 5th (5216 Pipe fitters) and 6th (5241 Electricians and electrical fitters) highest ranking 4-digit codes."

    There's really no need for you to make up your own "facts" out of your head.

    your statements are false. That suggests you don't understand statistics.

    Maybe that's why you prefer to avoid them.
