All schools built circa 1970 and earlier, have asbestos in them. So do most public buildings, break shoes on your car, floor tiles, etc. You name it, it has asbestos in it. You can find asbestos fibers in the lungs of 1 day old children.
The only diseases related to asbestos are:
asbestosis - a scarring of the lungs.
mesothelioma - cancer of the lining of the chest cavity.
All of these have a latency period of 20 - 30 years, that is, the disease doesn't show up until 20-30 years after the exposure.
I would doubt very much that asbestos has anything to do with CH.
