Especially if you are over 55
The state of our teeth has consequences for our overall health. This is especially important now.
If our dental hygiene is poor, then our immune system will waste resources fighting this threat, and have less resilience to withstand the coronavirus.
Don't stress your body by making it fight what's going on in your mouth when it could be doing better things for you. This is especially important as we get older and our immune response weakens.
The fact is clear and unambiguous
Microdroplets carry coronavirus for 3 hours after a conversation
The need to keep our social distance during the coronavirus epidemic has generally been working well. However, we may be underestimating the range of community spread via aerosol transmission.
Research in Japan shows that aerosol transmission is still potent for up to 30 minutes. This finding is important for all of us in managing our risks. For specific groups like cyclists, it is important enough to be concerning.
Prevention tips that may be new to you, they were to me
A friend sent me a translation of what Chinese doctors assisting in Spain said must be done as personal hygiene to prevent contracting Covid-19. The advice goes beyond what I understood before I read them.
I can’t vouch for the authenticity of the advice, but it all makes a lot of sense to me. I will be doing these things starting now (I've already started).
You might like to consider them also.
20 minutes can serve for anti-Inflammatory
Viruses cause inflammation.
An over-exuberant inflammatory response characterises both coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
Moderate exercise helps fight the inflammation.
In particular, exercise fights age-related inflammation. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and several other chronic diseases - are now known to be strongly linked to inflammatory processes.
Exercising has been found to reduce chronic low-level inflammation i.e. exercise keeps us healthy and helps minimise the negative effects of age-related inflammation.
Since I was diagnosed at 50 with Type 2 diabetes I've been learning how to do bone-building fitness training which lowers my age. You can too. It's your choice. Walter
