The coronavirus pandemic has brought countries to a standstill. Fill up on Fiber. Fiber is found in healthy foods including vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains. Some studies have shown that simply eating more fiber-rich foods may help you lose weight and keep it off (1, 2). The US states of Washington, Oregon, and Nevada announced they have joined California’s COVID-19 Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, which will independently review the safety and efficacy of any vaccine approved by the U.S. FDA for distribution. The Governors of these states said they will identify public health experts to join California’s workgroup to guide the review of any vaccine that receives federal approval and verify its safety before California, Washington, Oregon, and Nevada will make COVID-19 vaccines available to the public. Consumption of all of these constitutes a balanced, healthy diet. Together, these foods give you all of the recommended vitamins and minerals you need each day. This includes vitamins A, C, E and K as well as B-complex vitamins. It also includes quite a few minerals, including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc. There is no single food that can give you all of these nutrients. With researchers continuing to understand COVID-19, there may be other virus-related causes for hair loss, Lambert says. That’s because the medical field is still learning about the underlying causes of COVID-19 symptoms If COVID-19 hair loss is attributed only to stress at this point, it may increase the risk that patients will not get the medical treatments they need to recover fully, Lambert adds. Other foods have trace amounts of arsenic, too, including some fruits, vegetables, juices, wine, mushrooms, poultry, and seaweed (particularly hijiki). Fish that consume seaweed concentrate arsenic at higher levels, but most is changed by the fish to the less harmful organic form. According to a 2010 EPA study, 17 percent of our dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic comes from rice, while fruits and fruit juices contribute 18 percent, and vegetables 24 percent. Of course, if you eat a lot of rice, a higher percentage of your total arsenic exposure would be from that. Arsenic has also been found in some mineral waters as well as homeopathic products and herbs used in Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine. For snacks: Pairing one serving of protein with one serving of starch of your choice (like peanut butter on whole grain crackers) is a good start. Pairing carbohydrates with a source of protein or plant-based fat helps to minimize blood sugar highs and lows. Think of carbs as a balloon that’s going to raise your blood sugar — and protein as an anchor that holds that balloon steady,” said Foroutan.
