It will be wonderful if we approach the concept of the ORALPEACE project, “a society in which each and every one of us supports each other in times of trouble.” We pray that everyone on board will be able to return to their loved ones as soon as possible.
“Relationship between oral care and viral infections”
The bacteria in the mouth excrete, as their metabolites, proteases and enzymes called neuraminidase, which destroy proteins. These enzymes have the property of making it easy for the influenza virus to enter cells through the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract. If the oral cavity is left unclean, the amount of protease and neuraminidase will increase, which will easily lead to the onset and aggravation of virus and influenza. A research conducted by a university institution found that cleaning oral cavity with oral care reduced the infection rate of influenza virus by a factor of 10, indicating that there is a correlation between viral infection and keeping oral cavity clean. It recognized.
