3. Moving well
4. Thinking well

SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Obesity: Common Inflammatory and Metabolic Aspects

In this COVID Crisis, why aren’t governments (and Mr. Bill Gates) addressing the elephant that’s been in the room for decades–the worldwide chronic disease epidemic?

Imagine the ‘GREATEST GOOD’ that could be done, starting TODAY if we decided to do something to address the underlying factors that make for the most severe COVID cases, AS WELL AS THE WORLDWIDE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH FOR ALMOST 100 YEARS…

We could see a potential reduction in deaths from HEART DISEASE, CANCER, DIABETES, STROKE, AS WELL AS COVID–BEFORE A COVID VACCINE IS EVEN AVAILABLE!!

 

Optimal Nutritional Status for a Well-Functioning Immune System Is an Important Factor to Protect Against Viral Infections

Sure we’ve heard about wearing masks and washing hands, but has anyone heard these recommendations being made publicly?

“The role nutrition plays in supporting the immune system is well-established. A wealth of mechanistic and clinical data show that vitamins, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and folate; trace elements, including zinc, iron, selenium, magnesium, and copper; and the omega-3 fatty acids [EPA and DHA] play important and complementary roles in supporting the immune system.

Inadequate intake and status of these nutrients are widespread, leading to a decrease in resistance to infections and as a consequence an increase in disease burden.”

“… public health officials are encouraged to include nutritional strategies in their recommendations to improve public health.”

How an Epidemic Outbreak Impacts Happiness: Factors that Worsen (vs. Protect) Emotional Well-Being During the Coronavirus Pandemic

“Through two large-scale nationwide surveys conducted in China immediately before versus during the coronavirus outbreak, we found that the onset of the coronavirus epidemic led to a 74% drop in overall emotional well-being…”

“Regardless of the actual amount of knowledge they possessed, those perceiving themselves as more knowledgeable, were able to experience more happiness during the outbreak. Higher perceived knowledge was associated with a stronger sense of control, which mediated the differences in emotional well-being…”

This was a very interesting paper that made many good points.

Keep searching for the truth, but remember to check your sources!

 

Flu Vaccine Less Effective in Obese Individuals

Almost 1/3 Michaganders are obese.

Not only is obesity a risk factor for more severe cases of COVID-19, it’s tied to death from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, etc.

Here’s another reason why we should all be taking this time to build better metabolic health!!

 

Is Copper Beneficial for COVID-19 Patients?

More recent research on the essential micronutrient copper, and how it can relate to immune function.

 

T-Cells Found in COVID-19 Patients ‘Bode Well’ for Long-Term Immunity

“The immune system sees this virus and mounts an effective immune response…”

The results suggest “one reason that a large chunk of the population may be able to deal with the virus is that we may have some small residual immunity from our exposure to common cold viruses…”

Isn’t the immune system incredible?!?
