Asbestos removal became a political issue, so the danger became overblown just like lead danger.
If it is so dangerous, why do they exempt churches from most of the rules? According to the EPA, church members may remove asbestos containing flooring from their church, as long as they are not charging for it. And homeowners can remove it from their own homes. At least that is what a rep from the EPA explained to us.
And---Why is a certain amount still allowed in the Auto Industry
Well it has been three weeks since the OP was here asking his/her first question and he hasn't bothered to come back and even say thank you, so why don't we stop wasting energy on this thankless thread?
