Full disclosure: this one isn’t fun and cheary. On this week’s episode of The Whole View podcast, Stacy and I discuss the newest science on covid-19 reinfections, including how long immunity is likely to last based on other coronaviruses, long-haulers and what the likely explanations are for continued symptoms, as well as the risk for long-term complications and organ damage as a result of covid-19 infection, including involvement of heart, lungs, kidneys and brain. These various potential long-term impacts are important to understand as we continue to navigate this pandemic, but the news mostly isn’t good. The main takeaway: it’s still important to practice social distancing, proper hygiene, avoid indoor gatherings and wear face masks, and we are in this together!

Nutrivore Weekly Serving Matrix
An easy-to-use and flexible weekly checklist
to help you maximize nutrient-density.
The Weekly Serving Matrix is very helpful! I’ve been eating along these lines but this really helps me know where to focus vs. which foods serve a more secondary role. It’s super helpful and has taken a lot of worry out of my meal planning. Thanks!
