La luz del sol y la infección de la gripe....Sunlight and flu infection
Sunlight and flu infection
Placing infected patients in the sun may have helped because it inactivates the influenza virus. [7] It also kills bacteria that cause lung infections and other infections in hospitals. [8] During World War I, military surgeons routinely used sunlight to heal infected wounds. [9] They knew it was a disinfectant. What they didn't know is that an advantage of putting patients in the sun is that they can synthesize vitamin D on their skin if the sunlight is strong enough. This was not discovered until the 1920s. Low levels of vitamin D are now linked to respiratory infections and may increase susceptibility to influenza. [10] In addition, our body's biological rhythms seem to influence how we resist infections [11] New research suggests that they may alter our inflammatory response to the influenza virus [12]. As with vitamin D, at the time of the 1918 pandemic, the important role that sunlight played in synchronizing these rhythms was unknown.
