The lungs are among the largest organs in the human body. These muscular air sacs are located within the chest.
When air is brought into the lungs, the body takes in oxygen and removes carbon dioxide from the blood.
The heart then pumps the oxygenated blood to the body.
Mammals, birds, reptiles, a few fish, and some snails also have lungs.

Other animals, such as insects, don't have lungs like ours. Many breathe through their skin, taking in air through spiracles and extracting oxygen through the "pages" of their "book lungs."
Lungs serve an important function, and they must be taken care of.
Dust, smoke, and germs can damage the lungs.
For that reason, it's important to wash your hands frequently and wear personal protective equipment such as a mask or respirator when you might be exposed to toxic or harmful pollutants.
Some animals have lung protection built-in - for example, camels have a network of hairs in their noses that prevent dust from entering their lungs during a sandstorm!
