Abstract

From the moment of birth, until the time of death, the lung is an essential organ that provides our bodies with oxygen and eliminates the carbon dioxide we produce. Our ability to reach our physical and mental potential throughout our entire life span is strongly influenced by the efficient functioning of our lungs. Over the last few decades it has become increasingly apparent that both environmental and genetic factors operating during early life can induce persistent alterations in the function and health of the respiratory system. The principal objectives of this book are, firstly, to concisely present current concepts of normal processes involved in the growth, maturation and aging of the lung, and secondly, to integrate the growing body of..........
