things i did not know about the nose!
your nose cleans and humidifies 20 thousand (!!) litres of air a day!
it removes ALL (yes it said all!) particles down to the size of pollen grains
humidifying the air prevents the lungs drying out (ugh!)
the nose warms cold air preventing more damage
the nose is considored a 'vital organ' for these reasons
excessive breathing through the mouth (when not exercising) is known as (wait for it...) mouth breathing
mouth breathers are more likely also to have asthma and halitosis
mouth breathing slows down the lungs cilia cleaners and slows the rate oxygen gets to the blood
