Lungs Matter

Respiratory Futures, The British Thoracic Society and ITN Business have produced a news-style programme to raise awareness and understanding of respiratory health.

Read more about 'Lungs Matter' on the Respiratory Futures website here.

Breathing is fundamental to life, and most of us breathe unconsciously, without awareness. Respiratory disease, however, affects as many as one in five people in the UK.

For many, the simple act of breathing can be a struggle and most patients with chronic respiratory disease will never be cured. Early diagnosis, treatment and education are the cornerstones of effective health care.
