Could It Be Pneumonia? A Dozen Warning Signs!

It is probably one of the most misunderstood of illnesses.  Many old non-medical people have been taught, quite incorrectly, many myths as to what causes it.  Some say playing in the rain causes it.  Some say a damp shirt drying on you will cause you to catch it.  And some even sing about it being caught from kissing a girl… which makes you wonder why not all teenage boys have caught it coming home from the highschool dance.  The illness we are referring to is, of course, Pneumonia.

Pneumonia?  What Is That?

Many people have heard of pneumonia.  Some think they know what it is, some do know what it is, and some cannot even spell it, much less know what it really is.
