The lungs are among the hardest-working organs in the body. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the U.S. We discuss the many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems.
