I used to be a plumber and worked using Asbestos products. Needless to say I have Asbestitus. The danger of asbestos had been known for years but the secret was well concealed due to its versatility and low heat conductivity. The same is happening with traffic pollution governments seem to be paying ‘lip service’ to the next generation of lung disease and its cause, partiuarly in the inner cities

True. Didn't want to put a 'like' on it because it's not something to like.
