Asbestos Ad

Post by Messy » Sat Dec 01, 2018 9:34 am

Just browsing the web earlier and found this newspaper advertisement . The claims make the product quite attractive don't they? It will out live the life of the boiler and is lighter than other varieties - wow!

It made me feel really sad that so many didn't have a clue when they were handling this stuff, and paid the ultimate price :(

Yup, so many have wound up with asbestosis, or even worse. Makes you think if anything we're using today is killing us so slowly that we don't know it yet, eh?
