Didn't know exactly where to put this but found it interesting. There is another link at the end for a coal mine disaster!

It no less true today for any deep or surface strip mine in the United States or Canada as silica can be found in most all rock formations.

Wow! That's a 63% death rate within five years, and you can bet there were more in the next five.
No more sanding joint compound without a mask. In fact I almost always wet sand for that reason. Bad stuff, it's even in latex paint.

We cut concrete pavers when laying patios and building walls. New regs require wet saws or a saw with a hepa filter. The guys have to wear not just dust mask, but a heavy duty mask that is quite uncomfortable outside in 90 plus degrees. It is the same silica issues. I love my government :mad:

Any solid you inhale is bad for you. Wheat, cotton, doesn't really matter, not healthy.
