Preventing mesothelioma is the best
option. Mesothelioma is a slow but an unstoppable killer; once you have it, you have it for life; your chance to
be cured from it is very, very minim. If you feel that you work in
an industry at risk of exposure to asbestos, you have to take all necessary measures to protect yourself from
exposing and inhaling of asbestos. It is
important to discuss your health concerns with your employer and require that he/she provides physical
protection required by law to eliminate your risk of developing the mesothelioma or asbestosis.
although it is
legally the responsibility of your employer to provide safety devices against asbestos, it is your
responsibility to protect your health and the health of your family. If your employer is negligent or refuses to
provide your safety, do your duty; contact an agency to support you right away. Your employer will be obliged to
comply with the law. If you
have been exposed to asbestos, early screening by chest x-ray may help prevent the
mesothelioma or its complication.
Quit smoking - If you are a smoker and have been in contact with
asbestos, stop smoking and have a chest x-ray annually to reduce the risk of lung cancer and other pulmonary
Lifestyle - exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, avoid stress
and sleep for at least 7 hours every night can help you have a healthy immune system, and delay or stop the
development of mesothelioma.
