Looking after your lungs

Flash player required

Lung health will greatly contribute to a better quality of life. There are particular things to note when considering whether you’re at risk of jeopardising your lung health.

  1. Don’t smoke – it’s the worst thing you can do for your lungs
  2. Avoid lung irritants, like certain chemicals, dust and fumes
  3. Genetics – certain conditions make you more pre-disposed to respiratory problems
  4. Gender – women are sometimes more at risk due to their smaller and more sensitive lungs and airways.
