WOW, that couldnt be more incorrect then anything!. Yes you can get cancer from asbestos.
Why don't you just use 1/4" drywall? its lighter and not nearly as heavy....
Seriously though, our codes in orlando have changed to were they require 5/8" on the ceilings, unless you use the more expensive 1/2 FAG RESISTANT.. sorry, i meant sag resistant drywall. I am not sure what it is made out of but it says sag resistant on it. its not the cheapest stuff but it is easier to hang for sure.
