Health Unmuted

COPD is a lifelong condition, but it doesn’t have to be a progressive one. The first and best thing someone can do is to quit smoking. Jan and Jean share their experience giving up cigarettes, and we cover the medications, therapies, and healthy lifestyle changes that can help slow or halt the worsening of lung disease. Plus: what babies, opera singers and harmonica players can teach us about breathing.
