Does Christy Turlington have COPD?

ANSWER

Yes. In 2006, a lung scan revealed she had early-stage emphysema. She began smoking at 13 and quit at 26 after her father died of lung cancer. She's now an anti-smoking activist. Since her diagnosis, Turlington has run four marathons and wrote a book about practicing yoga.
