The lungs are one of five vital organs in the human body along with the brain, heart, kidneys,and liver. Every breath you take helps to produce and distribute nutrients in the bloodstream that provide you with energy, heal your wounds, and maintain every other organ throughout the body. And while most people understand the basics of maintaining healthy lungs i.e., getting enough exercise, eating healthy foods, and not smoking, many people aren’t aware of how specific lung diseases differ from one another and how they’re diagnosed by medical professionals.

Without oxygen, human life would not exist. Much like the water you drink and the food you eat, the oxygen you inhale plays an essential role in helping your body convert nutrients into usable energy, occurring through a process called cellular respiration.

Every time you take a breath, air passes over tiny air sacs in the lungs called alveoli. Oxygen is absorbed from the air and sent to every part of the body via the bloodstream providing your body with the energy it needs to survive and thrive.
