I’m 33 But My Lungs Are 82

CigarettesIf there’s one thing you can always count on, it’s that smoking will never prove to be the healthy option. It will always be causing you some kind of physical grief be it wrinkles, yellow teeth, cancer or, most recently, stroke. A study of more than 80,000 Chinese men found that one in seven strokes is caused by smoking.  The more cigarettes each male had throughout the day, the more likely he was to have an ischemic stroke. So it’s logical to assume that lessening your smoking habit would lessen your risk of stroke.

But that kind of information doesn’t seem to penetrate your daily routine. You’re still lighting up – right now in fact. So we’re going to take a different approach. Rather than telling you that you could quite easily be among one of the four million smoking-related deaths this year or that you could be helping to make lung cancer one of the most prevalent cancers in the nation,  I’m going to talk to you about your age, your lung’s age.

You may be a hale and hearty 30-year-old man, but you’re lungs are a different matter. They could be a weak and feeble 50-year-old or, even worse, a 75-year-old.  They could be functioning at levels well below what your age range dictates. They could be the oldest part of your body, and considering how important they are, do you really think that’s good?

It’s not.

Just as you don’t want your skin or hair to misrepresent your age, you don’t want your lungs to either. You want them to match your real numbers. To do that, you don’t need a cream, lotions or face yoga.  You need to quit smoking. You need to put the pack down and take a breath of youth.
