Take Your Lung Health Seriously
Most people want to either get healthier or stay healthy. Rarely, though, do they think about protecting and maintaining the health of their lungs. This year changed that. Now, all of us realize how important it is for our overall health to keep our lungs healthy and strong. Lung diseases, including lung cancer, cause hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. You don’t want to be one of these, nor do you want to live with chronic breathing problems and pain. So, the question becomes- what can you do? What steps should be taken to keep your lungs healthy? Let’s answer that right now:
#1 Don’t smoke. You knew this one was going to be number one, right? By now, it’s pretty common knowledge that smoking is bad for your health. Don’t start smoking and if you already smoke, make the effort to quit. Every time you smoke a cigarette, you inhale thousands of chemicals into your lungs, including nicotine, carbon monoxide, and tar. These toxins damage your lungs. Over time, your airways narrow, making it more difficult to breathe.
#2 Get daily exercise. Getting regular exercise is probably the most important thing you can do for the health of your lungs. You already know that exercise keeps your body in shape, but it also keeps your lungs in great shape too. When you exercise, your heart beats faster and your lungs work harder. This is because your body needs more oxygen to fuel your muscles. This helps you to better resist aging and disease. Even if you do develop lung disease in the years to come, regular exercise helps to slow the progression and keeps you active longer.
#3 Make efforts to prevent infections and viruses. This has been a very big deal this year, and rightfully so. The best way to avoid any type of infections is to keep your hands clean. Wash regularly with warm water and soap, and avoid touching your face as much as possible. Also, stay up-to-date with your vaccinations. Get a flu shot each year. If you’re 65 years old or older, get a pneumonia vaccination too. Try to avoid coming into close contact with someone by standing less than 6 feet away and being in big crowds.
#4 Make sure your home is free of Asbestos. Did you know that your home could still have Asbestos in it? Breathing high levels of Asbestos fibers can lead to lung cancer, specifically mesothelioma, and asbestosis, in which the lungs become scarred with fibrous tissue. The only way to know for sure you and your family are not breathing in this toxin at home is to have a professional team come and look. If they find it, you need Asbestos removal right away.
