Bronchitis

A. Bronchitis
Explanation
Bronchitis is a disease caused by smoking. Smoking irritates and inflames the bronchial tubes, leading to the development of bronchitis. This condition is characterized by a persistent cough, difficulty breathing, and excessive mucus production. Smoking damages the cilia in the bronchial tubes, impairing their ability to clear mucus and bacteria from the lungs. This allows harmful substances to build up, leading to infection and inflammation. Therefore, bronchitis is directly linked to smoking and is considered one of the many respiratory diseases caused by this harmful habit.
