October is Healthy Lung Month!

The American Lung Association was initially created in the 1940’s to combat Tuberculosis.  Now, the ALA advocates for many lung disorders such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, and Lung Cancer.  They even battle air pollution and fight for freedom from tobacco addiction.  With programs such as, Freedom From Smoking and Better Breathers Club, the ALA is dedicated to fighting the impact that unclear air and disease have on our health.  For more information on the ALA, diseases of the lung, and the programs offered by the ALA visit the American Lung Association’s website.
