Can malignant mesothelioma be prevented?

While there are many possible causes of cancer, exposure to asbestos is a big risk factor for developing malignant mesothelioma. In order to reduce your risk of the disease, make sure that the areas where you live and work do not contain asbestos. Since many building products can contain asbestos, people who work in construction, factories, mines, or other similar industries should be careful. Follow all safety guidelines and wear equipment to protect yourself. People who work in fields with guaranteed exposure, like asbestos removal and mitigation, must take special care to follow safety guidelines meticulously.
