Health risks are minimal...as long as you are careful. I cast so I can tweak the bullets to better fit my gun. BUT, the main reason I cast is because I like to shoot...alot....and casting allows me to do that even on a tight budget. If you decide to try it out, buy some Lee equipment. It is cheaper but flat out works. You can easily start out casting for under $100 and probably even cheaper than that.
