According to a recent opinion piece on CNN.com, our food system in the United States holds a lot of the blame for chronic disease and our high death rates from COVID-19.
Why does the U.S. have around 4% of the world population but closer to 25% of the world’s death from COVID-19?
Certainly our government’s response is partly responsible but much can also be explained by nutrition related chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and other metabolic diseases.
If you are concerned about COVID-19 or are already struggling with chronic illness, you by all means should wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands regularly. However, you should also be changing your diet to include less processed food and sugar and increasing your movement and exercise, even it that is just a few laps around your home or your yard.
