Smoking, DNA & COPD


So it would seem that the odds are not necessarily set fair after all, as this new research suggests that some people are destined to suffer with a respiratory disease even if they have never smoked! However in discovering this scientists may be able to find a way of reducing the probability of contracting COPD for everyone. The recommendation by researchers still suggests that stopping smoking is advisable whatever your genes. Smoking does increase your risk of COPD as well as heart disease. An HSE report suggests that there are 900,000 diagnosed cases of COPD in England and Wales alone and it is suspected that the true number of sufferers could be as high as 1.5 million. So if you are having difficulty in breathing or you find you suffer from breathlessness then maybe it is time you took a visit to your doctor. Using a portable oxygen can often alleviate your symptoms and help you to start enjoying your life again
