Exercising in the winter? Take care of the lungs


Do you go out early in the morning to exercise? If you are doing so, the doctor advises: Avoid possible infections in the lungs.

According to experts, the amount of air pollution is high in winter season. Moreover, the dust particles of Kathmandu are also rich in viruses and bacteria, due to which viral infections increase the incidence of colds, fevers, pneumonia and other infections in people.




Doctors say that dust particles can cause lung allergies, skin problems and itchy eyes if they reach the lungs through the airways.

To avoid such infections, it is important to use N93, 95 or 99 masks before going out for exercise in the morning. Other types of surgical masks cannot filter out fine particles of dust below PM2.5, which causes dust particles smaller than PM2.5 to enter the lungs through the trachea and cause various lung infections, say doctors.
