What if we all die young? (danger of inhaling that hardwood dust)

Hey guys I had a thought the other night.  A bout 10 seconds after I had dumped lump in my BGE I looked over and saw a metalic looking dust still settling out from the pile.  I work at a large hospital and I could not help but think back to a few years while sitting on the lung transplant board at my hospital...  There was a young man who needed a transplant, never smoked a day in his life that had two "burned out lungs".  I asked the pulmonologist what happened and he said "wrong place-wrong time.. every breath you take it is possible that you could inghale something that could nest and eventually burn your lungs out".  

Anybody else ever wonder if this dust could be toxic?  Is there a Dr in the house?
