In conditions in which there is a genetic base, as in the case of the familial form of essential tremor or as could also be the case in Parkinson's disease, there is not much that can be done for the prevention of the condition.
In other instances, such as the case of industrial or accidental exposure to toxins, prevention is possible with education and industrial precautions. One of the best examples available is the prevention of lead intoxication in children which used to be common and now, through continuous monitoring of blood levels of lead from early life, is rarely seen.
