    Cement Dust

    Is it potentialy dangerous to work in an outside environment where you are constantly engulfed in cement dust bilowed up from passing veichles?

    Can it do long term damage or is this only if your lungs are in contact with the stuff for many years?

    That's it?

    Can you elaborate?

    Is there nothing I can do to reduce the damage?

    Quit smoking and give your lungs a chance to cope with the other crap.

    DEFENCE MECHANISMS OF THE LUNGS
    Healthy lungs have effective ways to keep clean. Mucus in the airways traps dirt and foreign particles. Little hairs called cilia beat back and forth in the airways to move the mucus and dirt up where it can be expelled by coughing.
    There are also special cells in the airways called macrophages. Macrophages are mobile cells that eat up toxins in the airways and lungs.
    There are two requirements for this system to work:
    • a regular supply of air containing oxygen must be inhaled via open, clear airways in order to reach the air sacs
    • the waste gas, carbon dioxide, must be exhaled through these same airways
    SMOKING destroys all these defenses.

    • smoke consists of hundreds of chemicals that act as toxins to our lungs
    • smoke increases mucus production, but it also stops the little hairs or cilia from working
    Quit smoking dude.
