Lungs are part of our respiratory system and are vital for oxygen to pass into our blood stream and other organs and for the carbon dioxide to be exhaled out. It is important that we don’t take our lungs for granted. We must pay attention to any cough and wheezing, as these symptoms can be the first signs of lung disease. An early diagnosis can help in receiving proper treatment, before the disease becomes critical or life-threatening.
