Emphysema is a disease of the Lungs.
The over inflation of air causes damage to the air sacs ( Alveoli ) in the Lungs, Call it Emphysema. It causes difficulty in breathing.
Normally the lungs have small elastic fibers that expand when air passes to them. When some pathogens enter the lungs, the immune system attacks them. It releases substances that kills the pathogens and prevents the body from infections. But sometimes the immune system attacks the healthy cells of the Lungs and body stops such actions by releasing some other substances. This disease is common in smokers. In Smokers, the lungs loses the elasticity. This causes damage to the air sacs. The damaged air sacs fail to expel the air from the lungs. The air gets trapped in the lungs. It causes enlargement of the air sacs and damages the tissues of the lining of the lungs.
