Coronavirus: Like Getting Hit With A Brick In The Area Of Health & Wealth
The coronavirus caught many Staten Islanders unprepared physically and financially. Savings and investments are being wiped out, while years of unhealthy eating have left many vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
Today I’d like to focus on health. How can we prepare ourselves to be as healthy as possible when the next novel virus finds it’s way to the United States. The number one reason that we are healthy or unhealthy is the food we consume. Whole foods, those that grow in the ground or on a tree, Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts & Seeds are what our bodies are designed to eat.
Processed Foods & Animal-Based products create havoc in the body. In addition, we overeat. The human body requires only small amounts of Whole Foods to survive and thrive. Obesity is rampant due to overeating, eating an excess of processed foods, and Animal-based products. If you observe people that live over the age of 100, the common denominator is that they eat like birds. Their meals are small.
In the video below, Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, discusses beating Diabetes with a Plant-Based Food Plan inspired by the popular documentary, Forks over Knives.
This is the first in a series of blogs exploring the way that the health and wealth of Staten Islanders can be built up so the next pandemic isn’t such a shock to your system. In the next blog, we’ll take a look at the “wealth” aspect of the problem.
