AARP, mesothelioma, lung cancer and smoking
The AARP (formerly known as the American Assocation of Retired Persons) is a nonprofit, non-partisan membership organization for people age 50 and over.
The AARP provides a variety of resources for members, including travel, health, retirement living, financial planning and other topics of interest to those over 50. The AARP’s focus on healthy living and disease prevention is of particular help for those looking to change their livestyles to stop smoking.
While it is well-known that smokers have a higher risk of developing lung cancer, smoking is an even greater risk for men and women who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace.
Exposure to asbestos can lead to developing serious lung diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Smoking adds to the risk.
If you are a smoker and have been exposued to asbestos, you have an 11 times greater chance of developing lung cancer. If you smoke more than one pack per day, your risk is 100 times greater than someone who has not had asbestos exposure.
When you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, you depend on your medical team to provide the best care for your illness.
