Example 1 – Why does COPD happen?

The main cause of COPD is smoking. The likelihood of developing COPD increases the more you smoke and if you have been a long-term smoker. This is because smoking irritates and inflames the lungs, which results in scarring.

Example 2

A vaccine that protects against high blood pressure by mopping up a hormone that makes blood vessels constrict has been developed by a team of scientists. A trial of the jab showed it significantly reduced blood pressure in 72 people with mild to moderate hypertension, and was particularly effective in the early hours of the morning, when people are most at risk of strokes and heart attacks.
