The Prevention of Lung Disease

Health News November 20, 2017

According to the Mayo Clinic, there is no sure and certain way to prevent lung disease. Some people smoke all of their lives and still have longevity with no disease, while others may not smoke at all or are affected by second-hand smoke of others and experience lung cancer. You can never truly tell if someone is prone to lung disease besides genetics and their overall health condition. Though you cannot be certain that these methods will prevent lung disease, there are things you can do that can make experiencing lung disease more unlikely.

If you have never smoked, it is wise to continue being a non-smoker. Why raise your risk of lung cancer by starting? And do your best to stay away from second-hand smoke of friends and loved ones. Sometimes this is hard to control, but simply move away from smokers if they are engaging in the act.

If you are a smoker, then stop. Do what it takes to break this habit. There are people who can, as they say, go cold turkey and stop on their own, however, if that is not you, get some help from your physician as to what would be the best way for you to break the habit.

Get your home tested for radon. Radon has been known to be a culprit of lung cancer and other lung diseases. There is plenty of information out there about radon poisoning and it’s become very simple to get your home tested.

Take care of your overall health by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables avoiding foods filled with preservatives and ingredients you cannot pronounce. Eat as healthily and clean as you possibly can.

Try to avoid carcinogens at your workplace. Speak with those in charge about your work environment and ask plenty of questions so you know what you’re being exposed to.

Develop a daily exercise routine at least 3-5 times a week. This will keep your body healthy and strong and more able to fight off diseases.
