Your immune system is the body’s defense against diseases.
The lungs are very sensitive, but we don’t always consider the significant role our lungs play for our overall health. In order to keep your lungs functioning properly, you should take proper care of them.
Air pollution, tar, and nicotine, contain harmful substances which accumulate in the body and eventually build up in the lungs.
Nicotine is a substance found naturally in tobacco. This addictive agent increases blood pressure and heart rate, causing serious damage to your cardiovascular system and respiratory system.
Tart is found on the leaves of the tobacco plant, which is also a toxic substance which affects the function of the lungs. Smoking increases the risk of developing lung cancer.
Therefore, lung cleansing is necessary.
