The claims heard now concerning COPD and smoking have NOTHING to do with smoking. SMOKING IS WAY DOWN and COPD is WAY UP. It does NOT compute to relate to smoking per figures within the last five years and the true cause needs to be looked at.

The last hour is what you mainly want to listen to but it's worth listening to all for a lot of insight into other illnesses.
