Asides from religious and personal reasons, some people do not smoke because they are scared of damaging their lungs and being the cause of their deaths. But surprisingly, not only smokers battle with lung infections. There are millions of individuals out there who have never smoked in their lifetimes but yet fighting with COPD; you would agree with me it is indeed a scary world right?
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a dangerous inflammation of the lungs which narrows and obstructs airflow from the lungs. This disease is one that is not easily diagnosed because of its symptoms which are similar to symptoms of less serious diseases. The symptoms are cold, restricted airflow, thick mucus or phlegm production, wheezing, fatigue, cough, chest pain, etc.
