One of the points I saw in that study is that silicosis is only one of the hazards of media blasting. Many blasting media proudly advertise their low silica content, while not giving enough attention to the fact that media blasting your lungs, no matter the media, is not safe. This has been a consistent theme of the pros on this forum.

Also, it made me curious about the possibilities of iron oxides as blasting media.
