Are you going on vacation by plane? With what diseases you can choose during a flight of several hours
The dry air in the plane destroys the protective mucous membranes of the body, favoring the penetration or propagation of already existing bacteria. Radiation is also a problem, a three- to four-hour round-trip flight equivalent to the radiation absorbed during a chest x-ray.
STOMACH AND SINUSUR. The low humidity in the aircraft can over-dry your airways. In the absence of the mucosa that acts as a barrier to germs, the body is exposed to respiratory infections, gastroenteritis and more, writes abcnews.go.com. As a protective measure, avoid getting your hands on your eyes or nose too often, eat foods rich in antioxidants (at airports you find various kinds of yogurt with mussels) and wash your hands as often as possible.
BLOOD FLOW. The low pressure in the cabin, to which sedentarism is added, can slow down the blood flow, affecting especially those suffering from thrombosis and other vascular problems. Women who are taking birth control or have a history of atherosclerosis and other circulatory problems should get up from their seat and walk by plane at one-hour intervals.
EARS. The states of evil and nausea begin in the inner ear and are mainly caused by turbulence. The advice of the doctors is to book a place near the wings of the plane, the most stable area of the aircraft.
RADIATED CELLS. At over 9,000 meters above the earth, we are exposed to a rather high level of cosmic radiation. A three to four hour flight means half the amount of radiation absorbed during a chest x-ray. Irradiation causes certain changes at the cell level, and board staff and pregnant women are the most vulnerable categories.
SLEEPING DISORDERS. If you cross several countries quickly, the circadian rhythm is completely over your head. High exposure to light helps the brain and body better adapt.
