The amphibole fibers are believed to be the more refractory and potentially more dangerous substances. There is yet need for a very safe inorganic "mineral" fiber. It is also believed that the mineral fiber substitutes derived from phosphates are as safe as most substances on Earth. Although phosphate fibers are inferior to chrysotile in many of the applications for which "asbestos" was used, there are many applications in which phosphate fibers are superior to the mineral fibers. It is the author's conviction that there are theoretical reasons that nothing else exists which is safer than a condensed phosphate mineral nor can anything ever be found which is safer.
Orthophosphates can be converted to polyphosphates, such as adenosine triphosphate, where they have new properties of an anionic substance with a relatively high charge. This allows the polyphosphate to sequester cations as calcium and magnesium yielding locally very high concentrations ofthese ions at reaction sites while the concentration of a total system can be very dilute. This can happen while the molecule is entering into reactions such as phosphorylations. These reactions are critical to metabolism and photosynthesis.
There is but one natural isotope of phosphorus found in Earth's environment and it is the very stable p31 isotope. Whether or not this is a requirement for a building block for life is speculation, but it limits the likelihood that the element might undergo spontaneous radioactive decay in the DNA of an organism. Some forms of decay can create a new molecule, such as a sulfate that might not behave as desired in a biological system, even if the molecule withstood the impact of decay. An unstable phosphorus atom in the bridging phosphate of DNA could be disastrous for an organism.
