This might increase the incidence of tumors of the oral cavity, tongue, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchial tree, lungs, tonsils, nasal mucosa, nasal air sinuses, nasal polyps, vocal cords, esophagus, and any other structure where the insulin particulates are deposited during inhalation and nasal spray delivery methods.
The trachea and bronchial tree are lined with a specialised tissue--the respiratory epithelium.
We think that this is probably due to improved muscle tone as a result of regular daily practice of these exercises, leading to more efficient clearing of the bronchial tree.
In some cases, the symptoms are related to obstruction of the bronchial tree leading to pneumonia and respiratory symptoms (2).
