Re: When did zinc fumes become deadly?

I worked in a welding shop for nearly 4 years welding galvineel sheet metal into service bodies, and another year doing maintenance in a hot dip galvanizing plant repairing the racks they hung the metal on. During those years I know I breathed in my share of zinc fumes, and then some, and have never been sick from it. About the only thing I ever had a problem with was coming home at night sometimes and blowing black snot out the firstgt time I blew my nose. Even then it was no more than if I had been running a carbon arc all day.

Wrong or right I look at it like this. Old George Burns drank and smoked cigars for ALOT of years and finally died in his 90's. My Grandma never smoked or drank and she died in her mid 70's. Granted I don't condone stepping in front of a bus and trying to get to the head of the line to die, but the way I see it man is appointed a time to be born and a time to die. When your time comes it's "your time", wether you go quietly in your sleep or kicking and screaming , it really isn't our choice..........

George lived to 100. He fell (in the bathtub?) if I recall and that was a big contributor to his passing.

I was thinking he hit 100 but figured I'd stick with the '90's' and err on the safe side....
