A picnic with gatherings on the ground in spring can lead to cystitis and other diseases of the genitourinary system. This was announced on Saturday, April 24, in an interview with RIA Novosti, chief freelance specialist in primary health care for the adult population of the Moscow Department of Health, Andrei Tyazhelnikov.
The expert explained that the spring sun begins to warm the air and creates the illusion of warmth, but in fact the earth remains cold and wet for a long time. As a result, sitting on the ground can easily become overcooled. According to the specialist, hypothermia itself does not cause disease, but serves as stress for the body.
“Any stress lowers immunity. Inactive pathogenic flora with a decrease in immunity receives comfortable conditions for development. Thus, a picnic can end with cystitis, other diseases of the genitourinary system. And also a person with reduced immunity is more susceptible to coronavirus infection, ”he stressed.
Tyazhelnikov drew attention to the fact that the bedspread and rugs will not save you from cold and moisture, and that if you want to sit, it is better to use special tourist rugs for this, which are made of materials that do not allow the cold to pass through.
In addition, the doctor advised to wear clothing appropriate for the season, not to open the lower back and pelvic area, and always have extra clothing or warm blankets with you in case the weather worsens.
On April 19, nutritionist, clinical psychologist-nutritionist, member of the Union of the National Association of Clinical Nutrition Anna Ivashkevich told how much you can eat barbecue at one time without harming your health.
