One of the most common and one of the deadliest habits among people is smoking. There are more than 16 million people who have a huge problem with their health, because of smoking and this number applies only in the USA. People who smoke even know that it is bad and want to quit, while others who smoke live by the “you only live once” philosophy.
Because the chemicals in cigarettes are so toxic, smoking remains the leading cause of lung cancer. Smoking can even increase one’s risk of developing asthma or bronchitis. Even if a person quits smoking, he/she can suffer the effects of the harmful chemicals. Our lungs make up a large part of our immune system, to help filter pollutants and infection-causing microbes, and capture them with mucus in the lungs and shuttled upward by tiny cilia for us to cough out or swallow. The lungs are remarkable, and should be cared for. You should know that if you smoke, smoking destroys the cilia that help remove infection and pollutants, which results in clogged airways.
Lung cleansing not only helps in detoxifying the pulmonary system, but also balances blood pressure, improves digestion and strengthens the body immunity system. Natural lung cleanse is very simple to follow. Simply breathing fresh air can help cleaning your lungs. If you are cooped up indoors, either at home or at your workplace, get out and get a dose of fresh air. If working in a dusty and polluted environment is unavoidable, try making frequent trips to a nearby place where you can breathe relatively clean air.
