A misleading post quotes an Australian nurse as saying that infrared thermometers can cause brain damage
</figure><p>The thermometer records the infrared radiation emitted from the body - the surfaces of all objects emit this type of emissions - but it does not emit anything at the person.
The presenter talks about the concerns of an unnamed “Australian nurse”, and specifically refers to potential harm to these scales on the pineal gland.
This gland is concentrated in the brain cavity and controls the secretion of the hormone melatonin, and the man calls it “the gateway to the world of the soul.”
However, the pineal gland cannot be damaged or “targeted” with a thermometer.
“It just records the infrared radiation emitted from your body. It doesn’t shoot you anything,” says Stafford Lightman, professor of medicine at the University of Bristol.
As for the claims that a wrist thermometer is safer and more effective, Professor Lightman says they are not valid.
Lightman explains that human limbs cool and that the degree of blood flow to the wrist – unlike the face – varies greatly, so it’s not a good place to take a temperature.
The third claim: eating meat Animal Llama can help fight corona virus
Verdict: There is no scientific evidence to support these claims.
Since the start of the Corona epidemic, ineffective and unproven treatments for Covid-19 have spread online, and in some cases prominent politicians have promoted a number of them.
But this alleged treatment is new to us.
One of the regional rulers in Peru suggested that eating llamas and alpacas (camel animals that live in Latin America) may help fight the Corona virus.
