Lung Cancer Awareness Month Sheds Light on Airborne Carcinogens

Cinnaminson, NJ, November 22, 2013
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Lung Association, it is the second-most commonly diagnosed cancer and the most common cause of death due to cancer. Unfortunately, many people do not know they have lung cancer until the condition is in its later stages.
When people breathe certain contaminants they can cause damage to people’s lungs. Cells in the lungs can mutate and result in lung cancer. Protecting one’s lungs from these contaminants is one way that people can protect their health and reduce their risk of developing lung cancer.
Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. Even those who do not smoke can be at risk due to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). Radon, an odorless gas found naturally in many parts of the country, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Asbestos, which was used in many common building materials in the past, is another cause of lung cancer.
“In addition to smoking, radon and asbestos, there are industrial compounds, fumes and dusts that can all potentially cause harm to people’s lungs,” reports Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc., a leading indoor air quality testing provider. “When people are exposed to these pollutants at work, home or during school, it can result in real health hazards. We encourage people to learn more during Lung Cancer Awareness Month and to have their indoor air quality tested if they think there are potential hazards in the air they breathe. EMSL provides a complete array of testing services for IAQ contaminants and provides testing supplies and equipment to both professional consultants and concerned citizens.”
