Is cardboard dust hazardous to your health?
December 11, 2010 3:42AM
Standard cardboard dust is not hazardous to your health unless sufficient quantities become airborne when an ignition source is present, so you get a fire or deflagration.
Cardboard dust can be irritating and cause you to sneeze. If it is old and has been wetted, it could be carrying mold, which you may be sensitive to.
