How Old Are Your Lungs?
Cancers including lung, are the second highest recorded causes of death in Blackpool (23%) and respiratory diseases including bronchitis, emphysema and pneumonia make up 13% of all deaths in Blackpool. Our ‘How Old Are Your Lungs?’ campaign encourages Blackpool smokers to have a lung health check.
These quick, simple checks are used to measure how well a person’s lungs function. The checks are able to determine an age of the lungs based on the result of the test and this is an effective way of demonstrating the harm that cigarettes are doing to a person’s lungs.
