Coronavirus warning to those who are overweight

Drawing attention to the danger of obesity in coronavirus, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said: “People need more oxygen because they are fat. This means that organ systems are subjected to greater stress. This can be a serious problem with infections such as coronavirus.”

Coronavirus warning to those who are overweight

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı drew attention to the danger of obesity in coronavirus and made recommendations about balanced nutrition and conscious exercise to protect against coronavirus. Stating that overweight people have lower lung capacity, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said: “This situation makes it more difficult to provide oxygen to the blood and body. Because people are fat, they need more oxygen, which means that their organ systems are exposed to greater pressure. This can be a serious problem with infections such as coronavirus. The body eventually becomes tired due to the inadequate oxygen supply to the organs. In obese people, the body's defense systems against the virus are weaker than those of ideal weight.”
 
“FEED NATURALLY AND BALANCED”
 
Stating that immunity can be strengthened with antioxidant substances, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said: “Do a natural and balanced diet. Choose foods rich in vitamins C, E and A, iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc. The prominent foods can be listed as parsley, orange, carrot juice, onion, garlic, tomato, potato, apricot, date, almond, walnut, ginger, turmeric, hibiscus, echinacea, rosehip, linden, clove, natural honey.”
 
“YOU CAN STRENGTHEN THE DEFENSE SYSTEM OF THE LUNGS”
 
Explaining that the immune system will be strengthened with proper breathing, Saçaklı said: “About 15-20 billion dead cell remains are carried in the body daily. In order for the body to overcome all these burdens, the blood must carry enough oxygen to organs and tissues. Therefore, the lymphatic system will work very well so that it can throw such a big burdens. With deep and abdominal breathing, you strengthen the defense system of the lungs by allowing new air to be formed into the lungs and the removal of foreign gas from the alveoli more quickly.”
 
“SPECIALLY STRENGTHENING THE CHEST MUSCLES MUST BE CHOOSEN”
 
Expressing that regular and conscious exercise will protect against coronavirus, Saçaklı said: “With exercise, you contribute to the easier removal of the air in the dead space, which cannot participate in gas exchange, and thus the air in the alveoli. But be careful. Avoid high-intensity exercise as much as possible. The reason is in the hottest heat, body metabolism is about 100 percent higher than normal. In heavy exercise, the body metabolism increases by as much as 2,000 percent. In addition, high-intensity exercises increase the production of free radicals. Resistance exercises should be preferred, especially those that strengthen the chest muscles. Because corona affects the lungs most negatively.”
 
 
“7 HOURS OF SLEEP IS ENOUGH FOR ADULTS”
 
Saçaklı, advising a good and quality sleep, said, “Lie at the right time and get up at the right time. Go to bed between 22:00 and 24:00. Get up between 05.00 - 07.00. 7 hours of sleep is sufficient for adults. Learn to control your stress. If the intensity of stress increases, your immune system collapses. Consciously and slowly lose weight. Avoid quack diets.”
