How does a humidifier affect your lung health?

Yes, In a Dry enviro

Lungs
A humidifier can be helpful if the surroundings are very dry, such as in winter with "forced hot air" warming. Our nose, nasal passages, trachea all act to humidify our inspired air. If the air is too dry, these structures, too, can become dry. Keep in mind that humidifiers, if not kept lean, can also impart bacteria to the air, so some caution is necessary. Refer to package directions.

Will too much exercise permanently affect my lung health?

Probably not

Chest-lung
I know of no one who has developed lung problems as a result of exercise. It's far more likely to have other kinds of injuries like stress fractures, back problems, knee problems etc. from exercising "too much."

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

If I have asthma, does that mean that my lung health is very bad?

Probably not...

Adult_asthma
Asthma, by definition, is reversible obstruction. This means, on the right regimen for you, there should be no obstruction measured on your pulmonary function test between exacerbations. During an exacerbation, there is increased obstruction/inflammation which is treated until the airways get back to baseline.

Can you tell me some ways to help lung health after smoking cessation?

Hydration

Chest-lung
Hydration is very important. Smoking paralyzes the cilia in your airways -so that don't remove junk from the lungs. They come back to life when you stop smoking. Water is needed to loosen the junk so that it can be coughed out. Physical activity will also help.
