Caption: Stages of lung damage of a smoker leading to emphysema. The illustration cycles from the top left healthy lung down and around to the top right lung suffering from emphysema. Healthy lungs showing a healthy alveoli. Particles become trapped in the alveoli which triggers inflammation. Inflammatory chemicals dissolve in the alveolar septum, and large cavities become lined with carbon deposits, which lead to emphysema.
