COPD | Bronchitis & Emphysema
By 2030, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is predicted to be the fourth leading cause of death in the UK. It is thought there are over 3 million people living with the disease in the UK, of which only about 900,000 have been diagnosed. This is because many people who develop the symptoms dismiss it as a smoker’s cough and don’t seek help.
COPD is a general term which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which can cause narrowing of the airways and commonly occur together.
The Main Causes
- Smoking - The primary risk factor for COPD is chronic tobacco smoking. In the United States, 80 to 90% of cases of COPD are due to smoking. Almost all life-long smokers will develop COPD, provided that smoking-related, extrapulmonary diseases (cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer) do not claim their lives first.
- Occupational exposure - Intense and prolonged exposure to workplace dust found in coal mining, gold mining and the cotton textile industry and chemicals such as cadmium, isocyanates and fumes from welding have been implicated in the development of airflow obstruction, even in non-smokers.
- Air pollution - Studies in many countries have found that people who live in large cities have a higher rate of COPD compared to people who live in rural areas.
