I made a mistaken assumption based on generalizing my own experience with galvanized metal too much. I did think the warnings about zinc fumes were exaggerated, and that people who made a big deal about it were alarmists. I've been set straight about that.
In response to your non-exaggerated statement that I'll become the "biggest advocate for banning galvanized the world has ever seen" if I develop a sensitivity to it, I'll mention that I've developed a severe sensitivity to fiber glass insulation in the course of using it for decades, and I haven't even stopped using it, much less called for it to be banned. I'm just a lot more careful about the amount of protective gear I use now when I work with it. Actually, there's not much in the world I'm in favor of banning---not even hyperbole, so you're off the hook.
