Breathe Freely: Healthy Lungs Month
August 16, 2021

Most people want is to get healthier and one of the things we should focus on is our lungs. It is important to keep our respiratory health disease free to improve quality of life. Here are five ways to maintain your lung at its best.

Stop smoking

You probably already know that smoking increases your risk of lung cancer. But that’s not the only disease it can cause. In fact, smoking is linked to most lung diseases, including COPD, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and asthma. It also makes those diseases more severe. Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers.

Avoid exposure to pollutants

Besides avoiding cigarettes, getting regular exercise is probably the most important thing you can do for the health of your lungs. Just as exercise keeps your body in shape, it keeps your lungs in shape too. When you exercise, your heart beats faster and your lungs work harder. Your body needs more oxygen to fuel your muscles. Your lungs step up their activity to deliver that oxygen while expelling additional carbon dioxide.

Prevent infections

Respiratory infections like colds or pnuemonia can sometimes be dangerous to your lung health, especially as you age. Those who already have lung diseases like COPD are particularly at risk of infections. The best way to avoid lung infections is to keep your hands clean. Wash regularly with warm water and soap, and avoid touching your face as much as possible.

Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fruits and vegetables — they contain nutrients that help boost your immune system.
