Environmental toxicity has been identified as one of the causes of lung disease.  Lungs are supplying the required amount of oxygen to our body and disperse toxic carbon dioxide from the body to the environment. 

When the lungs are affected by the disease, this amount of oxygen cannot enter the body and from this, the damage to this organ and other important parts of the body starts.  If breathing is not done properly for 2-3 minutes then other important parts of the body get damaged.  The five major lung diseases are pneumonia, bronchial asthma, tuberculosis, COPD, and lung cancer.  These diseases are mostly preventable. 

Early treatment of asthma in children with bronchodilators and following other health advice does not cause any problems in children’s growth and development.  In many cases, childhood asthma gets better with age.  Breastfeeding the baby or mother’s breast milk increases the immunity of the baby and keeps the baby away from infectious diseases.

The lungs work continuously, never stopping.  Healthy lungs are essential to breathing well in this beautiful world.  So let’s develop a healthy lifestyle habit to protect the lungs and keep this important organ free from complications. Thanks for being with us.
