    The lungs are two large sponge-like organs that occupy a large amount of space in the chest cavity. They play a major role in the air circulation system. The left lung is slightly smaller.

    Its a big myth that smokers lungs are black! Diseased or cancerous lungs are black! Healthy smokers lungs are usually indistinguishable from a non-smokers! Just ask any surgeon who has performed a lung transplant! Healthy lungs clean themselves, so unless you smoke more than 40 cigarettes a day, there should be little permanent tar build-up in them! You havent smoked for very long and you dont smoke very much! You have to smoke much more for much longer to cause serious damage! You have healthy lungs! Dont worry!
