Abstract : This review article explores the significant global health burden of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and its potential to become the third leading cause of death by 2030. It highlights the growing evidence supporting the influence of diet and nutrition on COPD development and progression. Specifically, the Western-style diet is linked to an increased risk of COPD, while the Mediterranean-like diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, and oily fish, shows protective effects on lung function. Encouraging individuals to adopt a Mediterranean-like dietary pattern is crucial in reducing the burden of COPD. The article emphasizes the role of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in enhancing lung health and reducing COPD risk. Public health strategies should prioritize dietary habits in COPD prevention and management to tackle this pressing health issue effectively.
