    Has anyone developed fibromyalgia from working around all the silicone dust at UPS?

    We had a female driver in out center who did. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of this.

    I have seen the commercials on TV but truthfully thought they were just whining.

    There is a woman here who wears a dusk mask the whole time she is in the building.

    Then she takes it off when she goes out for a smoke.....

    well I would say there is a difference between being poisoned at work, and poisoning yourself by choice. Its still a free country.

    It's only free for half the population. The rest of us have to pay.

    Her tar coated lungs fend off the silicon dust, she's more healthy for it. Most people try to rationalize to themselves concerning their bad habits on why it's "ok" to continue them.
