The purpose of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is unknown however sure environmental elements and exposures have been proven to growth the risk of getting Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Cigarette smoking is the first-rate diagnosed and maximum accepted risk issue for Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and increases the danger of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis with the aid of about twofold. Other environmental and career exposures which includes publicity to metal dirt, wooden dust, coal dirt, silica, stone dust, biologic dusts coming from hay dust or mould spores or other agricultural products, and occupations related to farming/cattle have also been proven to boom the risk forIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
