May marks Lung Health Awareness Month. The Lung Foundation is raising awareness about the importance of lung health and the signs and symptoms of lung disease. Anyone can get lung disease – it affects approximately 1 in 4 Australians and is the second leading cause of death in this country. Despite this, many people ignore the signs and symptoms of lung disease for far too long. The Lung Foundation is reminding people of the steps they can take to check in with their lungs.
