COPD has become a matter of concern all over the country. Therefore, World COPD Day is observed every third Wednesday of November every year. The theme this time is the many faces of COPD. Previously smoking has been considered to be the cause of the above disease but with time the reasons giving rise to the disease have increased. In rural areas, women use fireplace and clay stove. The smoke emanating from it passes through the breath directly into the lungs, causing them to have trouble breathing. Now smog and pollution in cities are also making the said disease effective. Poisonous smoke emanating from industries and vehicles, when the smoke of straw is mixed in the mist, then smog is formed. Through the breath, it is also reaching our lungs and causing harm. Therefore, to keep oneself healthy, health checkup should be done. With the intake of a healthy diet the mouth and nose should also be covered.
