Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a respiratory disease where lung tissue becomes hardened, which eventually turns into scar tissue (a.k.a. fibrosis). Unfortunately, there aren’t any existing strategies to prevent PF, but there are a number of factors that affect your PF risk.
Smoking: Like with many respiratory diseases, smoking plays a key role in the development of pulmonary fibrosis. Therefore, quitting smoking as soon as possible lowers the risk of developing the disease.
Toxins: People should also take care not to be exposed to other toxins, such as asbestos and bird and animal droppings, and to use a mask when necessary to eliminate the risk of exposure.
