In episode No. 2 of the Top Lung Health podcast I try to raise awareness of occupational lung diseases.
These conditions are generally preventable if respiratory protection is used (i.e. particulate filter masks, good ventilation in the workplace). Many people however continue to work in dusty or otherwise unhealthy environments. It is important to try to work in well ventilated areas, to use respiratory protection, seek advice from your employer and doctors if you are developing respiratory problems at work. Very important to think long term! What will your breathing be like in 10-20 years?
