(HealthDay News) -- Though you can't live without them, we'll bet you haven't spent much time thinking about how to take care of your lungs.

The American Lung Association has these suggestions:

  • Don't start smoking; if you are a smoker, quit.
  • Don't allow smoking in your home or car.
  • Test your home for radon.
  • Avoid the outdoors when air quality is poor.
  • Prevent lung infections by washing your hands frequently, getting any recommended vaccines, and avoiding people who are sick.
  • Exercise regularly to keep your lungs strong and healthy.
  • See your health care provider regularly.
