COPD Is the fourth-leading cause of deaths in U.S.A. But It Is Undiagnosed in the PH?

COPD Is the fourth-leading cause of deaths in the United States. Please read this link:

  • mabuhay : Reply to Courtney Masella-O'Brien: Thanks for your opinion on my UNSOLICITED ADVICE, as posted in different Democratic-and-Filipino Facebook Groups. In life, timing is everything.

We will see if my poltical opinion is validated by CA voters during the presidential primary in 2020. -- Reply was posted in «link»
