Plant-Based vs. Covid…to the Rescue (Again)!

Hello everyone:

Here is some new research on diet and Covid-19 outcomes, and once again food plans that are primarily plant-based show real world positive effects on our immune system functionality and outcomes directly related to Covid-19. In other words, this applies to you unless you are already primarily plant based.

What this paper adds

  • In 2884 front-line healthcare workers from six countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, USA), individuals who reported following plant-based diets and plant-based diets or pescatarian diets that were higher in vegetables, legumes and nuts, and lower in poultry and red and processed meats, had 73% and 59% lower odds of moderate-to-severe COVID-19, respectively.
  • Plant-based diets or pescatarian diets are healthy dietary patterns, which may be considered for protection against severe COVID-19.

Bottom Line:

If you are not plant-based, get with it now! Reducing your consumption of poultry and red and all processed meats and increasing your vegetables, fruits, legumes, beans, nuts, and seeds can lead to such significant improvements in health that even your risk from this pandemic is lowered…whether you are vaccinated or not, this applies to you. I will continue to mention this dietary approach not only because it lowers inflammation, but it improves our health in foundational ways. We cannot gain significant benefits with supplements while we eat a sub-optimal food plan, they need to be implemented together and that is why food plans are foundational therapeutics in virtually all situations…from prevention to recovery and from acute to chronic conditions…we simply need to eat optimally. It is not only good for us, but it is good for the planet.

There are many great books and cookbooks out there on going plant-based and what that means, so do some research so that you can own the topic and save your own life and perhaps that of family and loved ones. If you find a particularly good book or cookbook, please share it with us!!
