I think many people would be astonished to learn that the third largest cause of death in Asia is preventable lung disease caused by smoking and air pollution.
SYDNEY, Australia (PRWEB) August 18, 2016
There is a fatal lung disease causing disability and suffering to hundreds of millions of people, and it is on a meteoric rise in Asia. It is poorly understood, largely unrecognized and incurable, but largely preventable. The causes? Smoking, pollution, and “the haze.”
Respiratory researcher and author Anthony Rebuck sounds the alarm on Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease in his new book, “Breathing Poison.” Rebuck is a well-known respiratory disease researcher with over 150 publications in asthma and chronic lung disease.
“I think many people would be astonished to learn that the third largest cause of death in Asia is preventable lung disease caused by smoking and air pollution,” Rebuck said. “This is a global health crisis affecting literally hundreds of millions of people, and it is particularly concentrated in Asia.”
The urgency of Rebuck’s message is focused on just how easy it is to overlook the impact this disease is having on society and the tragedy that lies ahead if it is ignored. In ‘Breathing Poison”, his lifetime of experience in researching the air we breathe is condensed into simple truths about one of the most debilitating and widespread diseases in the world.
