You can bet the buildings were all loaded with Asbestos plus who knows how many other things in the dust debris. Talking just about asbestos, I worked with a man who was exposed to asbestos in the Naval shipyards when he was young, welding in confined spaces using asbestos heat blankets They are use to shield things and also to put against hot welds to make the cool off longer, so they slow cool and don;t crack welds. It took a very long time for him to develope lung cancer that is specifically identified as asbestosis, and caused by it. He did pass away from it, and the end was not anything I would wish on my worst enemy. Sudden and uncontrolable hemoraging, his poor wife watched it all, and nothing she could do for him. He was 77 at the time, and his exposures were 50 years earlier. He was in the midsts of a trial for his exposure that is ongoing for thousands of people against the manufacturers of asbestos materials. I was contacted by the same people as I had exposures in the Motorcycle business with brake materials.
Long Story short is, these kind of exposures do not have to be massive, they can be minor exposures. The WTC caused many many resperatory diseases already and its only 8 years ago. The big defence used is the fact that if you are a smoker your odds increase 50 times greater that the asbestos will develope into cancer. Smoking is a huge factor in the risk of developing the disease. I'm sure that the other particals of harmful things other than asbestos in all the WTC dust, will also have the same delemia, that smokers are at risk up to 50 times greater than non-smokers. Its also a defence the companies use to say, how do we know your problem isn;t from smoking and nothing else?
I beleive my weld engineers wife ended up with a settlement from Len's death, but thats what they all count on. "Dead men tell no tales", in these kind of lawsuits and time is on their side, to delay and get continuances, stall, than go thru the same process over and over on appeals if they lose. They know in time, the Plaintiff is going to die. If you ever see a dime, what shape will you be in, so they know you will settle for 2 reasons. First, to have something for your spouse to life on, and second, to just die in peace.
So I found that there was 200,000 pounds of asbestos, 400,000 pounds of lead, 424,000 tons of concrete, large amount of mercury and other substances released into the air.....not to mention that this didn't all simply drift down straight to the ground like the towers did.....the aerial photos show this toxic cloud going down wind. How many lives might be effected outside of ground zero, Manhattan etc.
There are 4 basic categories which 9/11 conspiracy theorists fall into. Category 1 is Repressed Guilt, brought on by the unsupported belief that the theorist might have been able to help prevent the attacks somehow. Category 2 is Leftover Hippies and their offspring, which wouldn't believe the Government if it told them their house was burning and they could see the flames. Category 3 is Glory-Seekers, basically bored people out to make a name for themselves. Lastly, there is Category 4, Disinformation Specialists, out to generate anti-American sentiment, and divide US public opinion to cause confusion and/or civil unrest, which will make future attacks easier to perpetrate.
