Reminds me of that top gear episode where they got three old cars and did forensics on them to see what was in them. Ewwwwwww!

Apparently its well bad for you.
Bit late for most of us if it is
Was wanting to know I guess through the years ive breathed in all of crap including some silica. last night I was trying to finish a job that a tile guy started for me. I was cut porcelain tile with my grinder for a couple of hours without a respirator. You think I’ll be ok? I mean I know it not a doctor but any advice would help me mentally.

What's done is done. Wear a mask in future. Ive cut all sorts years ago and now have breathing issues. Couldn't put it down to any one thing but wish I had been more careful.

does anyone know if it contains silica or other nasties or can we all breathe it in for fun?
You can smell a big quantity of silica when cutting , it smells like nothing else ! Really we should all wear masks for any cutting ! But if high amounts of silica present , then very good masks needed

I've read his stuff and i buy into the whole mind over body thing. Try the cold shower thing, it's the hardest most painful thing I've ever done (ever) but it really makes you feel supercharged.
I lived in Sweden for a couple of years !they used to sit in saunas , then run out naked into the snow and jump into it !!! It definitely wakes you up
