Asbestos References:
This book says:

"Approximately two-thirds of all occupational disease exposures fall under the following three classificatins:
1. Exposurs to organic, nonmetallic dusts, mostly from grinding. This group includes exposures to silica and asbestos.
2. Exposures to lead and its components.
3. Exposures to carbon monoxide."

"A process which produces dust fine enough to remain suspended in the air while it is being breathed should be regarded as questionable until it has been proved safe."
(Page 138)
