LarryL - If you re-read my comment, you will notice that at no time did I question your intelligence or your common sense, nor did I rant or rave. What seems to be in question here is your knowledge of the dangers of asbestos exposure.
A medical background doesn't necessarily imply any specialized education concerning asbestos problems, as I have spoken to several doctors over the years who have been completely clueless to any but the basic facts of it's final effects. In fact, many doctors will never see a case where asbestos is named the culprit, for the reasons I mentioned in my last entry - no one is looking for it! The only folks who are really knowledgable (doctors included), naturally are those directly involved in high risk areas (ship yards, construction work, mines, etc.).
Most people, doctors included, are quite convinced that asbestos has been outlawed, and completly eliminated as a health threat, which is exactly what the asbestos producers and the government want the public to think. This keeps the profits rolling in from continuing sales and keeps the public from demanding the government stop a problem that it's afraid to face.
End result?? The public, especially the blue collar worker is left, once again, in harm's way with no help or end in sight.
Now, if you find that offensive that's a good thing, because we all should find that offensive!
