What is Respiratory Disease?

Respiratory illness is a common problem in the United States. Many times, people are genetically more likely to get respiratory conditions, but your workplace or environmental exposures could also play a big role. One thing is for sure, smoking is the most common cause of respiratory disease

Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs. It is one of the most common long‐term diseases of children, but adults can have asthma, too. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing‐related problems. It includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
