Immune system: Aspergillosis is a disease that is not routinely seen in people with normally functioning immune system. A healthy immune system will fight aspergillus fungus to prevent its, orbit effect. So, to answer your question, you want to make sure your immune system is functioning well. Make sure you have adequate nutrition, avoid unhealthy rabbits - smoking, excessive alcohol, drugs etc.
