When I was living in Nenagh the village of Silvermines was nearby. One summer was very dry and hot (doesn't happen very often) and poisonous dust was blown around.

I didn't live there long enough to get effected (hopefully) and it would be interesting to see some health stats from that area. I wouldn't move down there tbh.

Why is Silica Hazardous?
Silica, often referred to as quartz, is a very common mineral. It is found in many materials common on construction sites, including soil, sand, concrete, masonry, rock, granite, and landscaping materials.

The dust created by cutting, grinding, drilling or otherwise disturbing these materials can contain crystalline silica particles. These dust particles are very small. You cannot see them. This respirable silica dust causes lung disease and lung cancer. It only takes a very small amount of airborne silica dust to create a health hazard.
