I want to replace my laminated kitchen counter top. Is it safe to use bath wall tiles instead?

I've checked the prices with home remodeling companies, granites $25-30/ sq.ft then labor is another $28/sq ft. I am looking for a safe to health material to use in the kitchen. That's where I prepare food. Does bath wall tiles (the glazed ones are smooth and easy to clean)have asbestos? I want to avoid "chemical toxin" in the kitchen. If you feel strongly that laminated old counter top is probably "healthier " than bath wall tiles, then I'll quit thinking about that. Nothing is wrong with my counter top but periodic scrubbing with scouring powder (that is chemical too). Thank you!

Asbestos - no, though lead is a possibility depending on where it was made. While one could use "wall" tiles it is something generally not done due to the thickness...
