The Relevance of Diet to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 1
April 8, 2020
Nina Teicholz, author of "The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet," is a tireless advocate for reform of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). Nina argues for the relevance of diet to the current COVID-19 pandemic: Patients with diet-related degenerative diseases are more susceptible to adverse outcomes when infected with the Coronavirus. By some estimates, a mere 12% of adult Americans are “metabolically fit”—free, not just of overt diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver and heart disease, but also without vestiges of insulin resistance, often manifesting as overweight, inflammation and suboptimal cardiopulmonary efficiency. Hence, it behooves us more than ever to get national dietary recommendations right. But the current process is fraught with bias, conflict of interest, and shoddy science. Nina shares her initiative to bring scientific rigor to the DGA via www.nutritioncoalition.us. More on her and her book can be found at www.NinaTeicholz.com. Click HERE for part 2.
