10 Tips to Avoid Lung Disease Lung disease is any condition that prevents the lungs from functioning properly. There are three main kinds of lung disease: Airway Diseases: These diseases affect the airways that carry oxygen and gases in and out of the lungs. They usually cause blocking or narrowing of the airways. These include asthma COPD and bronchiectasis. Lung Tissue Diseases: These diseases affect the structure of the lung tissue. Scarring or in restricts the lungs from expanding fully making it harder for them to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis are examples of lung tissue disease. Lung Circulation Diseases: These diseases affect the blood vessels in the lungs. They are caused by the clotting of blood or scarring and inflammation of blood vessels. They also reduce the ability of the lungs to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. These diseases may also affect the heart func Pulmonary hypertension is an example of lung circulation disease. 10 Tips to Avoid Lung Disease is any condition that prevents the lungs from functioning properly.

combination of these three types. They are acute or chronic and can be fatal. The most common lung diseases include:  Asthma  Pneumothorax or atelectasis  Bronchitis – Swelling or inflammation in the main passages bronchial tubes that carry air to the lungs  COPD – Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease  Lung cancer  Pneumonia – Lung infection  Pulmonary edema – Abnormal bui  Pulmonary embolus – Blocked lung artery Here are 10 tips to avoid the lung disease Quit Smoking Cigarette smoking is the major cause of lung cancer and COPD which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Cigarette smoke narrow Over time it destroys the lung tissue and trigger changes that grow into cancer Keep Away from Pollutants Secondhand smoke air pollution chemicals at home and workplace and radon can all cause or worsen lung disease. Vacuum clean your home and car. Prevent Infection Cold or a respiratory infection can sometimes become serious.

Drinking plenty of water is part of good bronchiole hygiene which can reduce the risk of infection. Bronchioles are small airways deep in the lungs. Eat lung right There is evidence that antioxidant foods are good for your lungs. People who ate cruciferous vegetables broccoli cauliflower cabbage had almost half the risk of lung cancer compared to those who don’t eat them regularly. Get Vaccinated Get a flu shot in time for the flu season. If you’re 65 or older get the pneumococcal too. Know the warning signs Coughing wheezing or breathing problems that persist for more than a month demands immediate medical attention.
