You can also find this information and even more in my new book, How to Survive a Pandemic (https://nutritionfacts.org/how-to-survive-a-pandemic/) (all proceeds are donated to charity). With my How Not to Diet (https://nutritionfacts.org/how-not-to-diet/) book tour suspended, the COVID-19 crisis allowed me an opportunity to draw on my past expertise in infectious disease to fast-track this new book.
If you haven't seen it yet, we've put up a resource page all about COVID-19 with videos, links to my pandemic blog post and special Q&A sessions, my DIY hand sanitizer recipe, and more. Check it out here (https://nutritionfacts.org/covid-19/).
