The COVID-19 relief bill fails to get to the root cause of why the COVID pandemic hit the United States so hard. Part of the story for the high number of cases and deaths in the US is that we are a profoundly sick nation with high rates of chronic disease, many of which can be prevented or reversed with nutrition and lifestyle interventions. Funding for studies exploring how nutrition can address chronic disease and how nutritional deficiencies lead to more severe COVID outcomes would help address the underlying causes for many public health problems, but because these aren’t patented pharmaceuticals Congress doesn’t consider it. We have to change their minds.
Write to Congress and urge them to support funding for how nutrition can help with COVID.
Please support funding for nutritional strategies to defeat COVID
