Important information about smoking and asbestos
People who have experienced asbestos exposure are at a much higher risk of developing asbestos related diseases such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. Cigarette smoking multiplies the risk of developing these diseases.
Thus, health care professionals strongly recommend that people who have been exposed to asbestos refrain from smoking or quit smoking as soon as possible. Adopting a healthier lifestyle is critical for people who have been exposed to asbestos.
