So lung yin deficiency can develop into lifestyle diseases such as dementia, obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Lung yin deficiency can be caused by smoking, a fast-food diet, skipping breakfast and lunch and eating late at night; a sedentary lifestyle, prolonged hunching, poor breathing habits, watching TV for hours on end, incessant loud talking, or a dry atmosphere from central heating.
