Thanks :) i learn something new everyday.

Quoting Harris06:

It is because the right lung has more lobes than the left. The right lung is the primary bronchus and has three lobes; whereas the left, the secondary bronchus, has two.

Quoting meglennox:

I wonder why. :)

Well there goes my theory!

Quoting Harris06:

The right lung has three lobes whereas the left has two. :)

Quoting Mrs.Andrews:

I wonder if that is because of the stomach squishing the left lung some when it is full.
