Amen, it is a superb dielectric due to it's extreme stability.

To preclude pcb leaks, clean off the areas around the neoprene insulator 
gaskets with acetone.  When dry, force GE silicone rubber sealant into 
and around each neoprene seal to form a backup seal.  Also, mounting 
brackets tend to place stress on the case seams.  This problem can be 
avoided by using silicone rubber sealant to mount the capacitors.

PCB is found in penguins in Antartica.

Not the prob.  Poly Chlorinated Biphenals interfere with normal 
biological processes because they are so stable.

The harmful effect is mostly to the developing brains of children.

Listen to Channel 6 for a few minutes.

Rosin flux fumes do not affect brain function, do not affect brain 
function, do not affect brain function do not ... ...  . .. ..... .. .

Silver in the room undoubtedly helps, Carl, however, lighting two or more 
Queen of the Universe candles _and_ keeping them in plain sight 
reportedly helps boost the power of silver.  .
