Could LIGHT Be the Answer to COVID-19?
Not too long ago, President Trump took some heat for suggesting that LIGHT could be a possible treatment for the coronavirus.
There were all sorts of arguments about exactly what he said… and what he meant.
So, of course, everything became political… and practically nobody was talking about science anymore.
But let’s just focus on the science for a minute.
Could light actually be a treatment for COVID-19?
You might be surprised by what the research actually shows.
UV light therapy has been studied extensively for treating conditions ranging from skin problems to cancer.
And broad-spectrum UV light is also routinely used in hospital settings to decontaminate surgical equipment.
That’s because broad-spectrum UV light kills viruses and bacteria by destroying the molecular bonds that hold their DNA together.
I’ll say it again: UV light kills viruses.
The problem with this broad-spectrum light is that it can be harmful to humans, but scientists have figured out a way around that problem.
It’s called far-UVC light.
This light has a narrow spectrum, which allows it to kill microbes without harming healthy tissue.
And previous research has shown that far-UV light is especially effective against airborne flu viruses.
A study published in Scientific Reports just two years ago found that using far-UVC light is highly effective at killing the H1N1 strain of flu virus.
For the study, aerosolized flu virus was released into the air into test chambers. Then one chamber was also exposed to low doses of 222 nm far-UVC light.
The UVC light INACTIVATED the flu virus.
Can you imagine the implications of results like these?
This means that low-level far-UVC light could be placed in public locations to limit the spread of airborne diseases like influenza, tuberculosis—and maybe even COVID-19.
Unlike the flu vaccine, which is only (potentially) effective against one strain of the virus, these lights seem to be effective against ALL airborne microbes.
Low-level light therapy is SAFE, it’s EFFICIENT, and it’s COST-EFFECTIVE.
Everything Big Pharma’s solutions AREN’T.
Far-UVC light has even been shown to kill MRSA bacteria—a notorious strain that’s often resistant to antibiotics—without damaging the skin.
Until these light spectrums become routine, there’s another way to harness the healing power of light…
Sunlight itself has been shown to kill viruses and bacteria—and can boost your immune system, to boot.
It literally is nature’s best medicine.

Alzheimer’s remains a mystery to the medical community. They know characteristics of the disease process—like the telltale beta-amyloid plaques that build up in the brain—but the underlying cause has remained elusive.
