Changeling

Question:How old are your lungs?

I read something recently about how you can get a test to tell how old your lungs are.

It's said that learning this information can be one of the best motivators to quitting smoking.

Answer:

I've always wondered how old my lungs are...even though I'm not a smoker, I lived around and with smokers for a few years and I wondered how much of an effect it had on me. I think I might get this test!
