Help Reduce Your
Chances Of Getting Lung Cancer

 

This Is A Good Start

  • Stop smoking Now. Quitting reduces your risk of lung cancer, even if you’ve smoked for years.
  • Avoid secondhand smoke. If you live or work with a smoker, urge him or her to quit. 
  • Test your home for radon. Have the radon levels in your home chec’d, especially if you live in an area where radon is known to be a problem. 
  • Avoid carcinogens at work. Take precautions to protect yourself from exposure to toxic chemicals at work. 
  • Eat Healthy. Food sources of vitamins and nutrients are best. 
  • Exercise. If you don’t exercise regularly, start out slowly. Try to exercise most days of the week.
