Can Children Get COPD?
Good afternoon. Can children who are exposed to cigarette smoke and pollution be exposed to COPD as well? thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
As the name implies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung obstruction disease that occurs due to exposure to irritant or inflammation in the lungs that lasts for a long time or chronic. Irritant exposure can be in the form of cigarette smoke from both active and passive smokers, air pollution, and other harmful chemicals.
In children similar manifestations occur in other forms such as asthma, ispa, or pneumonia. However, if exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke and pollution continue to occur for years or with massive intensity, it does not rule out the child may experience COPD later in life as an adult.
Therefore, several things to prevent between others:
Avoid exposure to dust, cigarette smoke, and pollution Avoid the use of fluffy blankets and furry dolls Changing bed linen regularly Washing curtains and curtains periodically Maintaining environmental cleanliness Opening the window of the house, so that air can change and sunlight can enter the house Maintaining a healthy eating pattern Consuming lots of water Consuming high fiber foods Consuming multivitamin supplements So much information from me, hopefully it helps
