It’s a discussion filled with nutrition tips and insight on how diet and lifestyle changes can reverse many of the underlying conditions that significantly increase the risk for poor outcomes associated with COVID-19. They also preview Dr. Greger’s new book, How To Survive A Pandemic.

To keep things interesting, Dr. Greger is walking on his treadmill during the interview, which is a first for this show. Their “walk and talk” was done during the virtual Fairfax Veg Fest.

Plus, we open up The Doctor’s Mailbag as Dr. Neal Barnard and Karen Smith, RD, join Chuck to answer your questions!

  • How damaging is salt to your health?
  • How can someone stop eating bread if they’re addicted to it?

  • How could someone’s insulin levels rise but A1C remain normal?
  • How can you help a migraine headache caused by hormones?
