Perlite vs Vermiculite for closed terrarium

I'm worried about using perlite and vermiculite because of all the cons on them, especially about the health issues related to perlite. Any take on this?

What in particular are you worried about? I use perlite often & try not to inhale it. If handling it for long, I might put on a surgical mask (so as not to inhale it). I haven't rinsed mine, which I hear is suggested.
