The lungs are one of the most vital organs in our bodies. They are the sole organs responsible for the intake of much-needed oxygen from the atmosphere and transporting it to the heart from where the body organs can get it.
Lungs are also one of the most vulnerable of organ systems; this is because they are very sensitive and prone to diseases and decay. Still, human beings face challenges that can be disastrous to their lungs on a daily basis. Two of the most common of these challenges are cigarette smoke and pollution.
What one needs to understand here is, a lung transplant is not only one of the riskiest of procedures but also one of the most expensive ones ever. And one should not even let things go THAT downhill in the first place.
Taking care of your lungs is of utmost importance. Assuming that you do not smoke, you still need to protect your lungs from second-hand smoke and pollution; here is the tricky part: you can’t really ask random strangers to stop smoking, unless they are sitting close to you. Neither can you ban fossil fuels.
