Live Well and Breathe Easy
Our lungs play in important role in our health. Our lungs, like the rest of our body, need daily care and attention. Breathing feeds oxygen to every cell in the body. Without enough oxygen, people are more prone to health problems. But ordinary, everyday breathing isn't enough to keep the oxygen flowing through the body at peak levels. Learn 8 tips to improve your lung health.
Prevention and early detection of lung disease, including lung cancer, are the best ways to reduce risk of disease. Rush Copley offers a low-dose lung CT screening. See if you are at high risk.
