Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Hana Kahleova are back with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to answer your questions about the coronavirus on The Exam Room™ podcast.

Plus, Dr. Kahleova presents research that dates back to the deadly 1918 pandemic caused by the H1N1 virus. One-third of the entire world’s population is believed to have been infected and it is estimated that 50 million people lost their lives. However, out of the dark time came promising findings that could have major implications for the current COVID-19 outbreak.

A century’s old newspaper headline regarding the findings reads “120 exposed. 90 patients. No deaths. None very sick.” Dr. Kahleova will share the details of the promising research that focused on nutrition, sleep, and hydrotherapy.

Dr. Barnard and Chuck also discuss unconfirmed reports that the exotic animal markets in China where the COVID-19 virus is believed to have originated are already reopening after being shut down when the outbreak first began.

And Dr. Barnard estimates when the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to peak throughout U.S. More importantly, he and Chuck outline how dramatically a person's health can improve by changing their diet before the peak hits their town.
