As you know after reading this blog that the main factor of mesothelioma cancer is asbestos exposure, though it is no longer common to use asbestos in the United States, there are several places that suspected to contain this dangerous material such as in an old buildings or old apartment that have long been abandoned.
- Ask an expert in asbestos field to inspect your house, your office or where ever you spend most of your time to verify weather there are asbestos material or not in that place. Do not try to remove asbestos material yourself, instead hire someone that is reliable in this field or someone that have many experience dealing with asbestos.
- Stay away from someone who have a daily routine of getting asbestos exposure because asbestos materials can be transported through skin and clothing, making it easier to spread to other person . A few "stranded" asbestos materials is enough to cause a mesothelioma cancer so be advice!!.
- People at the age of 65 years old and so on have a higher risk of getting infected by mesothelioma cancer, if you or one of your family member is at that age be sure to have a routine medical check up just to make sure that your health is ok.
