-Feeling more thirsty than usual.

Tuberculosis has been one of the most prominent lung diseases in history, with traces being found in ancient Egyptian mummies. It was tuberculosis that prompted the start of the American Lung Association in 1904.

In recent years, anti-smoking movements have joined in to raise awareness of the high rates of smoking and its negative impact on one's health. in 1966, Cigarette packaging warnings were established, and years of campaigning have successfully led to a change in the American public's perception of smoking, especially with the discovery that smoking is a major cause of cancer.

Lung diseases affect many Americans, with 10 million being diagnosed with chronic bronchitis each year, 25 million living with asthma, and over 150,000 dying from lung cancer annually. Our lungs are vital to our health, and Healthy Lung Month is an opportunity to create awareness for lung diseases and making healthier lifestyle choices.
