Diseases affecting the respiratory tract are common in damp, cold and drastically varying climates. The respiratory tract consists of a branching network of air passage starting with nose, into the lungs and ending up in the tiny air sacs. The branching network of air passages is readily susceptible to inflammation to inflammation because its large surface area is constantly exposed to the generally polluted air that we breathe.
