Steve McQueen did not die of lung cancer. He died of pleural mesothelioma. Almost always a asbestos/smoker related disease. And a awfull way to go I may add. The US EPA could not care less about what you do in your house reguarding asbestos. Residential units of 4 or less are exempt from the Asbestos regulations, that would be NESHAP, The National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Emissions. However your state, county or some regional district may have a different view. Of course the landfill may balk at taking hazardous waste and the Highway Patrol may have some strong opinions about the correct way to haul it down the highway. If I was doing it I would use visqueen (or glove bags) to contain the area, use HEPA machines( with delta P certification) able to exchance exchange the air 4 times a hour, wear a respirator with P100 filters with a protection factor of 10, that I am fit tested and qualified to wear, have my annual HAZMAT physical, wet the material with a cationic emulsifing surfacant, seal it in leaktight containors, have a serious way to decontaminate myself comming out of containmen and thought about how I was going to get rid of it before I started. They are your lungs though, not mine. Breath it if you want to.

Saying pleural mesothelioma is not lung cancer is like saying a myocardial infarction is not a heart attack. If a cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs can't be called lung cancer then I think communication here has broken down entirely. But have it your way. This has been one of the most nit-picky, hysterical, and sanctimonious discussions on Tool Talk in a long time, and you managed to hit a triple.

The pleural is a soft fiberious tissue that surrounds the lungs. Pleural Mesothelioma is different than lung cancer, any type of malignant tumor that originates in the lungs.

You're right. I should have read more about it before responding instead of after.
