Could This Pandemic Have Extended Your Life?
Covid 19 has caused us to take many precautions against the risk of infection, masks etc. It is a virus that kills a significant number of people and we have had to change our lives because of it.
However our actions have also prevented many other viruses from replicating and effecting our bodies. Such viruses may not have any symptoms, they enter the body with their packet of data which ends up rewriting the code of our cells, degrading it basically but no other symptoms before our immune system destroys them. Such viruses could be a part of the reason we age and as our cells replicate they are not as good as the cells before them. It's all part of the degrading of cells over time that is so obviously shown in the skin but effects all parts of the body.
Since the pandemic has started a huge number of people have had less social interaction, less sexual partners and production of food has reached higher hygiene levels to hopefully reduce the levels of viruses that could be in meat etc that could effect us.
The viral load for many has massively reduced and this could be a significant factor in our ageing and health. So there could be a fringe benefit to this pandemic. Japan has had a culture of wearing face masks for many years and enjoys the highest life expectancy of any country.
It's food for thought anyway.
