  1. Wow ! I’m sorry to read about your wife suffering from COPD. Smoking is a absolute killer and I simply can not understand how in this 21st century people still expose themselves to these “death sticks” ! I appreciate people like you looking to spread awareness and also helping those who are suffering already. NEVER, EVER pick up smoking !

  2. Yes, I smoked for 20 years and tried a hundred times to quit. Finally I did it ‘cold turkey’ and have been free for over fifteen years. So much helpful info on here. I’ll forward this along to a couple of people I know who would appreciate it. Good job!

  3. You have some good posts on a variety of health issues that people are dealing with. I like the information and suggestions for the supplements, but would like to see more information for some of the health problems.

  4. I know smoking is one of the causes of Emphysema but there are other variants that Doctors are starting to discover. Many manufactured items that create fine particles when worked on are very dangerous to lung health as well.
    I was also wondering about the effects of Marijuana Smoking where people smoke but their disease is caused by other means.
    Can Doctors determine the difference if a person is a smoker and do they consider other factors in their diagnosis/
    Thanks, Jeff.

    • I would say that doctors can tell, if they are smokers. I’m not sure how, but I would say they have ways of telling by the difference in examining people.

  5. Glad I stopped smoking some 6 years ago. Both my grandfather on my father’s and mother’s side died of lung disease due to long-term smoking. I am sorry that this disease had affected your family members. I really like how you presented this article. It was articulate and straight to the point. I didn’t know that there are other causes of Emphysema other than smoking and inhaling chemicals/fine particles.

    • Thanks Lemuel for your interest and comment. Many people think that way but Emphysema doesn’t have to because of smoking alone. I know smoking is helper and the cause of a lot of sicknesses people have today.
