How Long Does It Take the Lungs Regenerate?

Answer

The time it takes for lungs to regenerate depends on damage done. A cigarette smoker's lungs for example contain a multitude of chemical poisons and when you quit smoking its able to function more normally and begin the process of regenerating. People begin to see health benefits almost after their last cigarette. Within 20 minutes blood pressure and heart rate both return to normal thus the chances of suffering from a heart attack actually decreases. Within a mere 72 hours a person's bronchial tubes start to relax which allows for easier breathing and increases lung capacity.
