    There's evidence to support vermiculite contains a dangerous, asbestos-like substance that can cause lung problems in humans. Here's a link to some info on it. I know many people use it in their vivariums. This new found info is already addressed in the general care of tarantulas article at tarantulas.com too. Better change your substrate.
