thanks for the link, no thanks for the snide patronizing remark. if you have to prefix anything with "not to be mean" or the like, maybe you should avoid saying it. rolleyes.gif all you did was throw the "im smarter than you, so there" card. you could simply have linked it and said you work in the field.
get over the asbesos thing. should i make it akin to how we used lead solder on piping? would that make you feel better? we ingested water that ran through pipes soldered with lead. it was "tested" and deemed fine to use in paint on childrends toys as well as the glaze you see on coffee mugs (developing countries still do this, you shouldnt drink from coffee mugs you buy while travelling to places in SA or similar areas) also.

My point was the media doesn't give you the full story. If you want to continue thinking my goal is to be condescending, that's up to you, but it's not. I provided you with the primary literature as a means to answer your own questions. One of the duties of a scientist is to interpret literature and it is just as important to inform those without related education as it is to express your own findings to fellow scientists. I hold people like Sagan and Nye in very high regard because of their views on public education. Tyson is also doing a fantastic job in that regard.

How should I have interpreted- "you talk as if you know everything about said subject. so please, tell me everything you apparently already know that we dont. and if youre like the rest of us who basically know it allows rats to live twice as long, you dont know anything about what is being said either"?

You sarcastically asked me to tell you everything that you don't. Should have seen it coming.

Lead has been known to be dangerous since the Greeks and has been well documented throughout history. I wouldn't say we ever thought it was safe.
