There is no doubt that we are in an unprecedented epidemic. I believe that people are starting to realize that a strong immune system starts with a good diet.

Wow, what a revolutionary concept! 😊

 

Food that we put in our bodies is the key to stay healthy and minimize the risks of getting sick.

 

Sugar is THE enemy #1.

 

Sugar reduces the function of the immune system for several hours after its consumption by affecting the function of the white blood cells.

 

In other words, sugar makes you more prone to get infections.


Have you noticed that the flu season picks after the Holidays? When people ate tons of sugar and processed foods?

 

Here’s an interesting article:

 

“NYU scientists: Largest US study of COVID-19 finds obesity the single biggest ‘chronic’ factor in New York City’s hospitalizations”

“They found obesity, along with age, was the biggest deciding factor in hospital admissions, which may suggest the role of hyper-inflammatory reactions that can happen in those with the disease.”

 

“The chronic condition with the strongest association with critical illness was obesity, with a substantially higher odds ratio than any cardiovascular or pulmonary disease,” write lead author Christopher M. Petrilli of the NYU Grossman School and colleagues in a paper, “Factors associated with hospitalization and critical illness among 4,103 patients with COVID-19 disease in New York City

 

In other words, poor health status increases the risk of getting this virus.

 

This is not a new concept at all. We know that food impacts our health.

 

And what is the main driver of obesity in the country? Sugar! It always comes back to sugar!

 

Take home message: stop eating sugar and you will have a stronger immune system!

 

God bless y’all 🙂
