Lucy the Lungs

“Hi! I'm Lucy the Lungs, yes that’s right there are two of me!

We fill most of your chest and hide just behind your rib cage. We are quite spongy in texture.

We breathe in fresh air to supply oxygen to your body and breathe out bad air called carbon dioxide.

We need clean fresh air to keep us happy. We love it when you exercise because we get to workout too!

What makes us really unhappy is being around cigarette smoke. This can destroy us and eventually we could die!

So please… ever smoke or breathe in smoke from others.”
