Children Exposed To Tobacco Smoke At Increased Risk For COPD

Smoking BabyPassive smoking (second hand smoke) can jump start Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) among children. COPD is any disorder that restricts or obstructs bronchial airflow. In the case of COPD, the block is permanent and worsens over time.

Research suggests two ways of how COPD begins. “First is the common fast decline trajectory, where the function declines the normal level and the alternate trajectory where there is a suboptimal development of lung capacity among younger population. This suggests that the maximum capacity of lung function during childhood and adulthood is a major factor in determining risk of COPD.”

The full study can be found at the New England Journal of Medicine.

    I am Alexes Hayden, i purchased chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD/Emphysema) herbal remedy from a herbal health clinic in South Africa (NewLife Herbal clinic), it really helped me. I was diagnosed of COPD in Elisabeth-bruyère Hospital Ottawa Canada in August 2014. In June 2016, I had COPD exacerbation, my condition worsened and the doctors could not help me, the Flovent HFA and antibiotics prescribed stopped working, it was a terrible experience i had, so my wife reached out for an alternative treatment.
