Lungs

American Lung Association
This is the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States. It began as a response to tuberculosis in 1904. Now it fights all diseases of the lungs with an emphasis on asthma, tobacco control and environmental health. The site provides information about asthma, tobacco, air quality, occupational health, school programs and related statistics. You can also find out how to contact the regional office to learn what is happening in your part of the state and how you can help. There is also information in Spanish.
