Leonard Nimoy Reveals He Has Lung Disease from Smoking
I am 65 years old and everyone in my age group I knew who insisted on continuing to smoke has paid dearly and are no longer with us. There are many ways to die but this has always been nasty. It is also the most common way for those reaching retirement age.
He quit before it degenerated into cancer but not before irreparable damage to the lungs. This will stress him now at an age were frailty is not rewarded.
I do know how to replace the oxygen system he is on but that takes coin to get operational. We can make a biological oxygen solution which can be drunk a glass at a time for at least a couple of hours relief. It would be nice to take him of the redspirator.
Leonard Nimoy Reveals He Has Lung Disease
Leonard Nimoy recently revealed that he has a lung disease and is hoping he will inspire his fans to stop smoking before it’s too late. Nimoy claims that he quit smoking 30 years ago, but that wasn’t soon enough and Nimoy is still suffering from lung problems caused by smoking.
Nimoy has been experiencing lung problems for a while now and has often been seen riding in a wheelchair, hooked up to an oxygen tank. His diagnosis is COPD, a disease that can make it hard to breathe and lead to other lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis.
COPD is caused by smoking cigarettes and is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The disease can be devastating and while it usually affects long-term smokers, it can affect smokers of any age. The symptoms of COPD and the difficulty in breathing that it causes, can prevent sufferers from enjoying their lives and staying active.
Nimoy had always prided himself on staying active and never officially retired from acting. He even made an appearance as Mr. Spock in last year’s Star Trek sequel Into Darkness and starred as Dr. William Bell in the hit science fiction thriller Fringe.
Nimoy made his fans aware of his condition via Twitter and has already received a lot of support from his fans.
