It’s not often that a country is named after the heart of its economy.
But that’s what the U.S. has become.
The country is now home to more than 11 million Americans with chronic lung disease — and a new study has found that more than half of them have lived in states with high rates of chronic pulmonary diseases.
And a whopping 80% of these Americans are white.
The new report, published in the journal the Lancet, finds that the most prevalent chronic diseases in the U, like COPD, are also the least likely to be diagnosed, making them difficult to treat.
The study also found that the rates of both the American Heart Association and the American Lung Association’s American Lung Health Association-certified guidelines for chronic lung diseases are the highest in the world.
“We found that, overall, in the United States, almost 40% of the population is considered to be at high risk for a COPD diagnosis,” Dr. Mark P. Zaslavsky, a pulmonary specialist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told CNN.
“This is the highest percentage of people with the disease that have the highest risk of being diagnosed.”
Pneumonia, which can cause coughing, chest pain, and breathing difficulties, is also among the top 10 chronic diseases.
Pneumonias can also lead to pneumonia, a more serious lung condition that can lead to death.
But the most common type of pneumonia in the country is non-Pneumonia respiratory syncytial virus (NSV), a viral infection that’s passed on through the air and can lead a person to develop pneumonia.
More than 80% in the US have been diagnosed with non-NSV pneumonia, according to the CDC.
This is particularly concerning because it’s the most dangerous type of infection, said Dr. John Schulze, a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University.
The average life expectancy for people with non.
pneumonia is about six months, he told CNN, which is far shorter than the average life span for people living in the European Union, which has a life expectancy of almost 15 years.
“Pneumonic illness can be life-threatening, and there’s a reason it’s called non-cardiac,” Schulzes said.
“If you have the non-infectious form of pneumonia, you’re going to die.”
Preexisting conditions are often not detected for people who have a history of chronic respiratory disease, but this can have a major impact on people’s lives.
“The burden of chronic disease in the developed world is almost entirely attributable to the high rates and severity of chronic conditions, including pneumonia, COPD and bronchitis,” Dr, Andrew S. Krieg, professor of epidemiology and health policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, told the New York Times.
“When we’re not catching them, we’re killing them.”
