Bronchitis - Prevention

The best way to prevent bronchitis is not to begin smoking or to stop smoking. Smokers are ten times more likely to die of bronchitis and other lung disorders than are nonsmokers. Other irritants in the environment, such as chemicals and air pollutants, should also be avoided. Immunizations (shots) can also help protect against certain diseases of the lungs, such as pneumonia and the flu.
