'Gut friendly' diet research, 31 July 2021

We're now passed 'Freedom Day' of 19 July but we must still be very careful by social distancing and wearing masks in shops and crowded places. Three weeks ago my sister and family were due to come up for a week's holiday but she got pinged by the NHS Covid-19 app and had to isolate. She was one of  1/2 million people who got pinged that week! My sister told me about a very important research project run by Zoe and King's College London. You download the app called C-19 by Zoe on to your smartphone and then record your health each day together with any Covid-19 test results and vaccine dates. They also do research into how to improve your diet to help protect against Covid-19. One of their surveys clearly shows that eating a plant-rich, ‘gut friendly’ diet is associated with a lower risk from COVID-19. Further reading here together with frequent online seminars.

Have a good week and stay safe.
