More than 4 weeks of self-isolation for many of us combined with a wave of great weather have led us out the front door. Increased sun exposure naturally leads to the topic of sun safety. Sun exposure increases the risk of skin cancer and speeds the aging of our skin due to the effects of ultraviolet light on our skin. Ultraviolet light has two types of harmful rays

  1. UVA(aging) rays can prematurely age your face causing wrinkles and age spots. These rays can pass through window glass.
  2. UVB(burn) rays are the primary cause of sunburn and are blocked by window glass.

Some of the aspects of sun safety are quite simple.

In mid-March the government passeda law making it illegal to be out in public with out a face mask. This was in response to continued viral community spread despite social distancing, proper hand washing hygiene and social distancing. I believe that is where we are right now in Canada. The general Czech population responded to this law in an …

Much of the information presented here was obtained from a blog by Dr. Mark Hyman on March 17. The world has changed a lot from that time, but I believe much of the information presented at that time by Dr. Hyman is even more relevant. Most of us are looking for ways to reduce our risk of getting sick if we contract the virus. I have not seen a better list of recommendations in the literature and thought I would modify and send to all of you. I believe this cuts through the hype of some self-serving supplement companies and others who seek to profit from the fear induced by this virus.

COVID-19 is caused by a new virus that emerged from Wuhan, China. This is a…
