My dad worked in a factory where they made brakes. He was a plumber. Back the brakes were made with asbestos. They used to throw it like snowballs. He was occasionally literally swimming in it. 


He he now has asbestosis.


so, I’m glad hardy board doesn’t have it any more. 

My wife's late father worked as a joiner in a shipyard where asbestos dust "fell like snow". He passed away over 20 years ago from mesothelioma, an aggressive form of asbestosis.

My mother-in-law was diagnosed with the same disease last year, probably caught from asbestos dust in her husband's clothes when she was doing the laundry.

She passed away in June this year, it was scary how quickly it took her at the end.

Horrific stuff.
