Dr. Sanderson shares if air quality can worsen chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Sure, I think that dust and air pollution can make things worse if you have any kind of respiratory ailment. Phoenix, of course, is getting caught up with the Los Angeles and air quality is not as good here as it was 20 years ago when we moved to Arizona. That’s an aside but it’s clearly a contributing factor to worsening symptoms.
