Rural vs. City Living with PF
I had a brief conversation with another member of the forums regarding rural vs. city living for people with pulmonary fibrosis. By desire, I would love to live by the ocean and away from the smog, congestion and pollution of the city as a preference. However, I have always wondered if this might be beneficial for my lungs as well. In theory, I think it makes sense that the fresh / salt air near the ocean would be better for my lungs, but I don’t know of any physicians or literature that supports this.
Has anyone ever come across this same pondering? Or better yet, have you ever had a conversation with your Doctor(s) about this and whether they believe one geographical area might be better for our lungs than another (ie. rural vs. city living)? If so, I’d be really curious to hear from you.
Thank you in advance for sharing.
