T. Colin Campbell has written a piece considering whether a plant-based diet could help in the fight against COVID-19 

Acclaimed plant-based health expert Dr. T. Colin Campbell says switching to a whole food plant-based diet could ‘produce a faster, safer, more comprehensive long-term solution for coping with viral diseases like COVID-19’.

The prolific plant-based advocate – and author of The China Study – made the comments in a recent article titled Could Changing Our Diets Defeat COVID-19? published by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies.

Nutritional risk factors

In it, Dr. Campbell referenced research he had previously done as part of the China Project, in which he and his team investigated the virus hepatitis B (HBV)

“We collected data on the prevalence of people having antibodies and antigens, multiple disease mortality rates, and many nutritional risk factors,” he wrote. “Relying only on statistically significant findings, HBV antibody prevalence was highly correlated with vegetable consumption, dietary fiber, and plant protein. In short, more plant food consumption was associated with more antibodies.”
