    Breathing the dust can cause silicosis. My understanding is that its a scarring of the tissue that decreases the elasticity. It can cause lung cancer and arthritis. Just don't breath the dust!

    Perlite is mostly silicon dioxide. Inhaling the dust can lead to silicosis

    This can in turn lead to tuberculosis and/or lung cancer among other things. Wear a dust mask when dealing with perlite and silica sand.
