Is balsa wood dust toxic?


New Member
I don't know if I should be posting this in the Replica Props category, but here's a quick question, is balsa wood dust toxic? I know breathing in fine dusts is bad, but will the dust give you cancer? I don't use a gas mask when sanding, I use the paper masks and safety goggles. Is that alright?
