Metabolism and COVID-19


Eating right may be one of the most important steps to surviving the pandemic.

A New York Times article “How Poor Diet Contributes to Coronavirus Risk” (1) shows the important link between nutrition and surviving the pandemic.

The article says: Improving our metabolic health could help ward off future medical, economic and social calamities from whatever pathogen next comes down the pike.

Despite our nation’s ability to produce so much healthful food, fewer than one American adult in five is metabolically healthy.

The article also points out that poor nutrition is the leading cause of poor health in the U.S.” and the cause of more than half a million deaths per year.

The article adds: “Only 12 percent of Americans are without high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or pre-diabetes,” he said in an interview last week. “The statistics are horrifying, but unlike Covid they happened gradually enough that people just shrugged their shoulders. However, beyond age, these are the biggest risk factors for illness and death from Covid-19.”

Alas, the metabolic well-being of many Americans is now further endangered by currently advised limits on shopping trips, an increased reliance on canned and packaged foods high in fat, sugar and salt, and emotional distress that prompts some people to turn to nutritionally questionable “comfort foods.”

The popular American food groups flour, sugar, potatoes, meat and grease… a killing combination.

Good nutrition is always of the utmost importance.  During this pandemic good eating is imperative!
