The lung is known as the "canopy" in Chinese medicine. It is derived from the fact that the lung resides in the chest cavity, one on the left and one on the left and one on the left and one on the left. "The cover of the internal organs" is the protective umbrella of the internal organs. Every day we need the lungs to maintain the vital sign of breathing. The lungs are composed of countless alveoli, which are responsible for taking in oxygen from the air into the blood, and at the same time releasing carbon dioxide accumulated in the blood to complete a complete set of gas exchange. The process, regardless of our breathing and breathing, is going on every minute, in fact, the workload of the lungs is much more than we thought.
- Nurturing the lungs first, and quit smoking first
- In addition to quitting smoking, there are three other things that need to be done to raise the lungs
Keep away from second-hand smoke and third-hand smoke
The reason smoking is so annoying is because it is a veritable harm to others and yourself. Secondhand smoke refers to the smoke exhaled by smokers and the smoke produced when the smoke is burned. Any dose of secondhand smoke intake will have an impact on health. The more you inhale, the greater the risk. Studies have shown that some people are in common with smokers. Living women are 6 times more likely to develop lung cancer than ordinary people. Third-hand smoke refers to the residues on the surface of objects after smoking, such as walls, furniture, clothes and hair, etc. Third-hand smoke also contains nicotine, heavy metals, and carcinogensAnd toxic gas, but also can exist for a long time indoors.
Keep away from smog
I suggest you develop a habit of paying attention to air quality. Nowadays, haze weather often occurs, which poses a great threat to lung health. Although there is no direct evidence that haze can cause lung cancer, there is no doubt that haze is a pathogen and carcinogen. The main problem of haze pollution is that there are too many harmful particles in the air, and its composition is very complicated. The composition of haze varies from place to place, but it includes hundreds of chemical substances, even if carcinogenicity is not considered.Inhalation of various physical particles and chemicals can also cause damage to lung cells.
Away from smog, it is not a requirement that everyone never go out, but learn how to use masks outdoors. Use air purifiers indoors. Common masks include ordinary cotton masks, disposable masks and N95 masks. The only ones that can prevent haze are N95 masks. They mainly prevent fine particles in the air (that is, PM2. 5th grade pollutants) enter the human body. In addition, reasonable use of air purifiers can help filter harmful particles in the room and reduce allergens. It should be noted that when the weather is good, there is no need to close the door and use the air purifier. The best way is to open windows for ventilation.
Stick to aerobic exercise
The name aerobic exercise sounds good for the lungs. Closer to home, although our lungs maintain a breath and a breath, they actually do not have the ability to actively expand and shrink. The breath and breath are achieved through the movement of breathing-related muscles, so we want the lungs to live longer. , We need to exercise breathing-related muscles to improve the muscle strength and endurance of these muscles, and exercise other muscles is also beneficial.
In simple terms, aerobic exercise refers to low-intensity, rhythmic, uninterrupted, and long-lasting exercises, such as fast walking, jogging, and Long-distance swimming and slow cycling, etc., so it is very suitable for no sports foundation,People who are just starting to exercise, as well as the weaker middle-aged and elderly people, in addition to full body exercise, can also exercise upper limbs by hand dumbbells, barbells, etc., and can also exercise lower limbs by stepping on steps or going up stairs. Alternative exercise methods There are many, depending on your own situation.
