Harry Parker,

ARTICLES are published on the dangers of asbestos, a danger of which we are all well aware.

But asbestos has been largely replaced with fibro cement. I do not (and I suspect that most people do not) know how to tell which is which.

Could the media please tell us how to distinguish which is harmful, and which is not?
