attic insulation in old house

Yeaaa Fiberglass sucksss. Whenever I go in it I wear long pants, long sleeves, a dust mask and goggles and still end up with a case of whooping cough after I come out.

Yes ! If fiberglass itches your skin, I wonder what micro particles of glass will do in peoples lungs over the course of decades. Even if it technically is not a carcinogen, it really cannot be a good thing.

Yet, when working around and moving the stuff enough to do a job, you can often see little sparkles of glass in the air.

Maybe the worst that happens is a man becomes Pink.
