Preventing mesothelioma is a much better choice than trying to treat it after it has already developed.

You can have far less asbestos exposure by following a few tips.
Mesothelioma Comes From Asbestos Exposure
Exposure to asbestos is what typically causes mesothelioma, although not everyone who is exposed will be affected by it. Avoiding asbestos is the most important way to reduce risk and to prevent mesothelioma. Learn more in our, "What is Mesothelioma" blog.
