Quite true.  There was a lengthy article years ago in "USA Today",
where the whole asbestos thing was thoroughly exposed as nothing more
than a scare.

The very scientists who initially raised the question of asbestos safety
were themselves convinced that there simply is no scientific evidence to
support the notion that asbestos poses a threat to health.  More die from
toothpick inhalation.
