Can I prevent myself from getting COPD?

Except for COPD due to genetic problems, this condition can be prevented in many people by simply never using tobacco products or smoking. Other preventive measures include avoiding wood, oil, and coal-burning fumes; limiting one's exposure to lung irritants such as air pollutants; receiving recommended vaccines to avoid infections (eg: flu); regular & proper treatment for lung diseases such as asthma and lung infections that damage the lungs.
