Lungs - Air - Breath - Life


Bang! I have just crushed a fly, taken her life. How easy it is to convert from life to death.
When a human dies, often the lungs are involved. The breathing once gone: dead.

Our lung is a hard working organ. Until the age of retirement our lungs have breathed in and out about 500 million times . The bronchi get flowed by 10.000 litres of air through the day.

Of course in a smoker’s lung this would be just air and smoke. The lungs of a healthy adult have more than 300 million alveolar. These spread out would cover an area as large as a football field.

One question: For example, if a doggy would poop on this sports field. Very close to the goal, of
course. The goalkeeper will surely be annoyed by that. What do you do in this case?

Answer: Doggy off the pitch and dog pile cleaned up.

Something similar would be the effect of a cigarette onto the bronchi. The smoke adheres them and when "the dog is not chased away", the lung will be full of shit soon!

Sehr drastisch beschrieben aber wohl wahr. Schönen Gruß aus Oberbayern!
