Mesothelioma Center is committed to providing the latest, up-to-date information in the hopes of spreading awareness about the dangers of asbestos cancer. Statistics show women are approximately 50% more likely to develop mesothelioma than men when exposed to asbestos. The majority of asbestos exposures among women occur due to secondary exposure, when asbestos fibers are brought into the home from an exterior setting.

Wellness

Simple Steps to Prevent Cancer

This is a small-format, 23-page booklet with excellent and important information on nutrition, exercise, alcohol use, etc. But it is a higher than usual reading level. Also, the format is not eye-watching, which would make it a little easier to follow. This good information would be even better, if it were available with American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) graphics.
