You and all the others that have mentioned potential health problems from this are right to think about such things, but i think as has been said, the
danger with asbestos and such is the size and shape of the particle.
Asbestos particles have a (relatively) large size and a sharp, needle like shape.
It's the large size and the barb like shape that causes this stuff to lodge in and damage lung tissue.
This new stuff has a much smaller particle size (nm sized) and unless they are barbed or needle like in shape (probably tiny sheres), they probably
won't embed into the linings of the lungs, but rather into the mucous membranes to be removed by normal body functions.
More information is needed on the particle size and shape though to know for sure one way or the other.
