Nonprofit group releases an urgent commentary from T. Colin Campbell, PhD.
Government leaders are talking about social distancing and testing for COVID-19 as two strategies that will help flatten the curve. New commentary by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, offers a third way — strengthening our immune systems to fight the COVID-19 pandemic through a diet of whole, plant-based foods. The commentary, titled “Our Most Important Defense Against COVID-19: Finding Hope through Scientific Evidence,” was released by the nonprofit PlantPure Communities, where Dr. Campbell serves as an advisor. According to the commentary, consuming a diet of whole, plant-based foods (vegetables, fruits, whole grain cereals, legumes and nuts) does not mean people won’t get infected by the virus, but it should increase their defenses to avoid the worst effects from the infection, and in doing so, help to flatten the curve of hospitalizations.
Many people across the country and the world are feeling vulnerable and are looking for ways to protect themselves and their families. Nutrition offers another path, but many find the prospect of eating plants to be daunting. The nonprofit PlantPure Communities (PPC) has developed a strategy to communicate Dr. Campbell’s empowering message through a free Global 10-Day Jumpstart to Flatten the Curve Through Nutrition, commencing April 19th.
