On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, David Katz, MD, a preventative medicine specialist and author of How To Eat, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to weigh the magnitude of our food choices on everything from the environment to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Katz also shares his opinion on how differently the global pandemic would be playing out if doctors focused more on food and lifestyle rather than just treating the symptoms of chronic conditions. He and Chuck then discuss his time working in an overflowing New York City hospital during the height of the pandemic. 

Dr. Katz will be a featured speaker at the upcoming International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.

Plus, Neal Barnard, MD, talks about how your blood type can impact your risk of COVID-19. Should you change your eating habits if your blood is type A rather than type O? 

Also, Jim Loomis, MD, teams up with Dr. Barnard to answer your health and nutrition questions!
