  • TitleUV Light: friend or foe?
    Country/TerritoryUnited Kingdom
    DescriptionA discussion between Drs. Peter Kotanko and Richard Weller on the latter's research into the effects of sunlight on systemic health. Dr. Weller describes two recent epidemiological studies he has performed in which he demonstrated an inverse relationship between sunlight exposure and blood pressure, and COVID mortality. He has previously demonstrated NO release from UV exposed skin to the circulation which may account for these effects.
