Asbestos update

The News of the World ran a 7/7 asbestos story at the weekend. I was scared, but also suspicious, and checked it out with the Health Protection Agency website and the National Asbestos Helpline. Richard, the National Asbestos Helpline M.D called me today and his email can be seen on the original post, added as an update. I hope it puts survivors'/first aid responders' minds at risk.

I've had calls from several frightened people today, and I am feeling very fed up with the News of the World ( and whoever okayed the ''SECRET KILLER OF 7/7'' story ) for scaring us all sick. Please see original blog post, now updated.)

ah, the media as we all love 'em.

on the other hand, asbestos or not, the air on the tube really sucks, and i mean everyday.

having to take a wee bit of extra care for the rest of my lungs, when in london i avoid the tube whenever possible, and if i really have to make an exception, i just put on a particle mask and don't care about the looks directed at me.

from what the mask looks like after, one hour on the tube equals to about 20-60 miles on the bike, depending on location, wind & general pollution.

btw, hope harassment will stop for you now. cheers.
