Ha......that's sooooo funny........and true.



But Hank, the answer is that your lungs are just inert sacks of flesh. The only way to lose capacity of the sack would be some disease. It is the OTHER associated mechanisms that cause our loss such as under use of the abdominal muscles. Of course there are MANY reasons why we get less oxygen processing than we'd like. Putting on more weight (caused by less desire to move, joint pain etc) means that are heart is required to provide more oxygen to more of us (a high resting heart rate will expose this issue).


So if your doctor says you're otherwise in really good shape, it is nothing that diet and exercise cannot turn around. I recall seeing some documentary on the members of the Philadelphia Orchestra some years ago and one of the horn players took up long distance running to improve his playing endurance. Not only did it perk up his playing but he became "one of those" obsessed with marathons.
