Plant-based diets and COVID-19
According to a new study¹, published in the BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health, following a plant-based diet may reduce the severity of COVID-19.
Researchers investigated the link between disease and different dietary patterns, surveying 2,884 health care workers, from six countries, with ‘substantial exposure’ to COVID-19. Participants were asked to complete an online survey for a period of two months – providing information on demographic characteristics, dietary information, and COVID-19 outcomes.
