Dust is it bad for you ?

Just wondering, if we follow someone else and there's lots of dust that you inhale, is it bad for you, can it cause some trouble in the longrun if you do a lot of riding in groups. I just got a email from one of my buddy that was talking about silica dust, saying that it was what we were inhaling while riding, although I highly doubt it, it made me wonder as to if it was bad for you....

Racing in the desert I've inhaled gallons of dust, sometimes it takes a few days to come out but so far have had no long term health issues. Isn't silica just sand.......

you just breath thru your nose, it's why there are hairs there, to filter out the junk. Then when you are all done, find the really hott attractive gal at the car wash/gas station/ wherever, and strike up a conversation with her, and in the middle of it do the old farmer's blow. I've never had a problem besides afterwards for a day or two having my snot and bugers (sp) coming out brown/black.

Inhaling the PA coal dust isn't good for you but it isn't like we do it everyday for 10 hours a day like the miners used too. I'm not concerned about it especially if I'm in front....SNOWDOG..LEADER OF THE PACK WOOO WOOOOOOOOWOOO
