Professor Alan Penn, a scientific advisor to the UK Government, says fresh air and sunshine can curb the spread of the coronavirus.
When a scientific advisor to the UK government admits that fresh air and sunshine can curb the spread of the coronavirus, one might hope that an end to the policy of lockdowns, which at one point had been imposed on half of humanity, would be in sight. As well as the damage they do to physical and mental health, lockdowns have become one of the greatest restrictions on civil rights in modern times. Unfortunately, however, Professor Penn’s advice seems likely to be ignored.
Sunshine has a vital role in producing vitamin D in the human body. A micronutrient that has numerous important functions, vitamin D is produced naturally when skin is exposed to sunlight. Recent research has shown that people with low levels of vitamin D are more likely to die after contracting the coronavirus.
Other important micronutrients for protecting and strengthening the body’s immune system include vitamins A, C, E, B2, B6 and B12, folic acid, and the minerals iron, selenium, and zinc. Numerous other natural substances, such as green tea extract, curcumin, and other plant ingredients are also scientifically proven to strengthen immunity.
