Amazing Facts about the Respiratory System






  1. The right lung is slightly larger than the left.

  2. Hairs in the nose help to clean the air we
    breathe as well
    as warming it.

  3. The highest recorded "sneeze speed" is 165 km
    per hour.

  4. The surface area of the lungs is roughly the
    same size as
    a tennis court.

    kilometres
    if placed end to end.
