Even though there are no sure ways to get rid of lung cancer, it is no secret that we can diminish our risk to be infected by this disease. Similar to other cancers, lifestyle seems to be the most influential factors which can lead us to suffer from lung cancer. In order to get away from this cancer, here are some things that we should follow.
In the first place, it is important for us to stop smoking. There is no doubt that smoking is a bad habit that many experts suggest being avoided in order to live longer. There have been many studies which found smoking habit as the main factor that causes lung cancer. That’s why it is better for us to get away from smoking either as first smoke or secondhand smoke if we want to stay away from this health problem.
Secondly, it is necessary for us to test our home for radon level. If you are living in any area that has a radon problem, it is better for us to get our home examined. In order to perform such examination, we can call our local department which deals with public health. If we are living in America, we can also contact a nearby local chapter of the association of American Lung.
Thirdly, it is also required for us to keep away from carcinogens. It is necessary for us to keep away from the exposure of any toxic chemical which may be spread around our workstation. At this point, we can ask our physician to give us more information about how to protect more our lung when we are working. The last but not least, it is better for us to start a healthy living habit including exercising on a daily basis and eating a healthy diet.
