I'm on yet another day of the Docu-Class. Today's "bonus" day discusses lung diseases.
Today I'm on the Docu-Class discussing lung health and lung diseases. If you watch this, I tied lung and vascular disease together. if you watched my previous presentations on this series I discussed the stealth organism chlamydia pneumoniae as a MAJOR factor in vascular disease, Alzheimer's and a myriad of other "ill-defined" chronic diseases.
Let's dissect this organism of which i speak: chlamydia PNEUMONIAE. This is a respiratory pathogen FIRST - and a vascular pathogen second. Learn why non-smokers get lung cancer - for example.
