THIS PIECE ON ASBESTOS USE HAS ONLY JUST BEEN ADDED
Subject: Asbestos use as told by a paint salesman, in the USA.
ASBESTOS MUST BE BANNED
IT IS STILL BEING USED,
even imported into this country.....
We met a gentleman who was a Hospice volunteer,
r who retired after being a salesman
for (???? Paint) in Baltimore,
Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
He said the painting contractors would buy asbestos
(don't know what the configuration was, sheets or what).
Anyhow, they would cut them into "shorts"
(not the kind we wear!)
that were about inches long and add them
to a 5 gal container of paint and mix them in.
They would soak it overnight for the asbestos to break down.
Next day they'd mix with another 5 gal of paint.
This particular outfit worked on
back in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
The asbestos laden paint
would be rolled on
as a block filler over the blocks
and this would fill in the
between blocks and then a final paint applied over it!
He said a lot of the
guys who were painters
were dying at very young ages.
50 to 55 years old they were.
Don't we know that!
If they used it on school buildings,
they used it on many other buildings!
YOU CAN BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR WE HAVE WARNED,
EVERYBODY ABOUT ASBESTOS EXPOSURE
WHEREVER WE WERE DURING (M's) JOURNEY
FOLLOWING HIS FALL AND BREAKING HIS HIP.
We asked that they support a total ban
of asbestos and they were amazed to learn
it is still being used....!
Perhaps that's one of the "gems"
God is using for this
"diamond in the rough" time
(M's) going through...!
Not one crumb of our life is ever wasted
