What is cystic fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 530 people in the New Zealand. You are born with CF and cannot catch it later in life, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing. It mainly affects the lungs and pancreas, but over time affects other organs too.
