All I can find on the tallow tree is that the milky sap is mildly toxic and therefore causes irritation of lips and eyes. It is bad for animals couldn’t find anything on the dust but it is probably a mild to moderate irritant. But I would do some more reseacch on it

Tung Nut trees are on the FDA Poisonous Plant Database. It says all parts of the trees are poisonous so don’t eat the nuts and I would be leery of turning it.

Do a Google search for Toxicity on both trees.

This is a good sight for toxic woods. HERE
