All about food and coronavirus

Thanks to Christel in Germany for sending me this very interesting link relating coronavirus and food. In an 11-minute video, Dr. Neal Barnard explains how our current virus is the great-grandchild of earlier viruses and how viruses originate in animal agriculture. He also explains how bacterial infections are carried into our kitchens in the bodies of chickens, and why antibiotic resistance is also a by-product of animal agriculture.

Farther down the page is an article on foods that bolster the immune system for any of us, and then short articles on the role of food in treating the underlying conditions that make a coronavirus infection so much worse. When I get to the kitchen, I will be adding more red peppers, oranges and leafy vegetables to my shopping list!

Wishing you good health--
