Boost your immunity before going to Wet Market.

March 17, 2020

Wet markets sell live poultry, fish, reptiles, and mammals of every kind. Animals may stay from days to weeks. Daily introduction of new animals provides optimum conditions for the development of disease agents such as influenza. Add the daily human contacts (including children) with the live animals, and conditions are optimal for the transfer and evolution of infectious disease agents. Although fresh produce is the mainstay of a wet market, other food items may be sold in the open marketplace depending on the region. For instance, in most parts of the Asia, live animals such as goat, lamb, pigs, poultry and fish as well as reptiles are offered for sale along with vegetables and fruits.

Butcher shops are often close by so the animals can be killed and prepared for eating. The practice is controversial, as some people protest against the marketplace killing of animals that are often kept in tiny cages until they are sold. Shoppers of wet market live animals tend to respond that they want to be sure their meat is of high quality and free from disease.There are markets like this all over the world, where fish, poultry and other animals are slaughtered and butchered right on the premises. They often have many different kinds of exotic animals. The stress of captivity weakens the animals’ immune systems and creates an environment where mutating viruses can slip from one species to another. When that happens, a new strain of a virus can occasionally get a foothold in humans.

Eating wild animal is considered a symbol of wealth because they are more rare and expensive. And wild animals is also considered more natural and nutritious.

Common foodborne viruses are single stranded RNA viruses which are adaptable and extremely resistant to environmental stress factors. Usual routes of food contamination are via stool material by persons shedding intestinal virus, or by saliva aerosols generated by shedding persons when coughing. Contamination of meat by animal viruses occurs when good hygienic and manufacturing practice fails. Once within food, viruses cannot replicate since they require living cells for this; hence food is not sensorily altered. Preventive measures in meat processing against pathogenic bacteria frequently have poor antiviral performance, while diagnostic techniques for viruses remain problematic.

Despite the fact that your world teams with infectious microorganisms, most of the time, you’re reasonable healthy, right? Thank your immune system, which defends you from disease-causing microbes. Now, step beyond gratitude to optimize the function of that system. Our immune systems are designed to fight off sicknesses and viruses. But unfortunately, the immune system can get worn down by many things typical of a modern life—for example, stress, toxins, lack of exercise, and unhealthy eating. This prevents our bodies from effectively fighting off sickness. With virus continuing to spread, it’s more important than ever to support the immune system. We can do this by making a few key tweaks to our thoughts, actions, and habits.

Here are few essential ways to boost your immunity in preparation: Yoga can help stimulate the four main physiological systems that are linked to the immune system: the circulatory, digestive, nervous, and endocrine systems. Your immune system is a controlled and well-ordered groupings of cells, tissues, and organs to defend harmful microorganisms, viruses and germs. Our bodies with poor immune system fail to resist infection, disease and other harmful biological invasions. Our immune system starts malfunctioning for stress, bad eating habits, disruptive lifestyle, diabetes, heart problems, cancer and many others.
