I hadnt considered all the different hazardous fumes generated by welding as this chart points out starting on page 3. It says welding produces extremely toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and ozone.

How much exposure from welding does it take to be at risk of overexposure to carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, ozone, manganese and phosphine?

If you want direct info check with osha http://www.osha.gov/oshdir/ga.html they can provide you all the info you want on welding or check the local supply shops. A lot of the gases that are listed also leave your system when moved to clean air but can cause long term problems at high levels.

If fogging up is a huge problem look into some of the anti-fog goggle style safety glasses. Working in a mill there is no end to the stuff in the air, the goggle style have a rubber seal around them that keeps the heat/moisture from the breath mask from causeing them to fog. Other than looking like you should be swimming
I have no complaints about the style.
