Had a distant relative doe from it recently after surmfferig for a few years.

Any of you lads worried about it?

I've done my fair share of ripping down ceilings and unknowingly disturbing asbestos without a mask.

Any of you older lads had any issues?

We all die of something eventually you can't change it now so try not to worry about something you might not need to worry about

I grew up very close to Bradwell powerstation and knew plenty of blokes who worked there and who were involved in it's building, asbestosis is not uncommon amongst them.
My parents neighbour was a chippy, he also died of asbestosis, probably from cutting soffit boards.
We used to cover the cavities at doorways with the asbestos undercloaking when screeding. I just used to snap it to length.

I have mixed and done loads of Artex ceilings when it first came out.
Could get some bad payback for all those ceilings with fans and patterns around the ceiling rose.
Without the bark affect on the walls, s**t I am going to hell for all my textured Artex crimes.

More scaremongering /hysteria...
White as asbestos aka chrysotile does not cause asbestosis or cancer
It does not attach itself to lungs merely expelled/ dissolved .

Sorry to hear that mate, really am.
In Completes defense I thought you were having a black joke. Didn't for a moment think you were serious.

i knew 6 plumbers who have died from asbestosis, and the strange thing is they were all aged 57 / 62 years old,
since learned this stuff can lie dormant for years then just start,
one plumber told me back in 1963 they were taking asbestos off pipes in a boiler room of a hotel, they were breathing it in, face/hair/hands all white,
then sitting down to have there baits,
no gloves masks, and nobody was aware of asbestos then

Old boss of mine has a death wish due to lagging endless pipes with the stuff
He moved to South Africa and I often wonder how he is
