What can you do to stay well, healthy and virus-free during the pandemic? Hugely popular guest and medical expert Dr Michael Greger returns to the podcast to share the latest research, explain the science, and cut through the BS on this incredibly important issue that ALL of us are grappling with right now.

Dr Michael Greger MD, is a physician, New York Times bestselling author, and internationally recognized speaker on nutrition, food safety, and public health issues. He’s also the author of two of my favourite books on health, How Not To Die and How Not To Diet. (If you haven’t read them yet, do yourself a favour and check them out, stat!)

To celebrate the release of his latest book, How To Survive a Pandemic, Dr Greger is here to answer your biggest questions about what’s going on in the world right now, including: How do new diseases come about? What — if anything — can we do to avoid them, eradicate them, and halt their devastating spread into our countries, our homes and our bodies? And what are the facts around a possible vaccine… and will it be safe?

As we all deal with the ongoing fallout of COVID-19 and try to figure out what our “new normal” will look like going forward, listen in to hear the best way to keep ourselves and our families safe, the truth about whether herd immunity is possible, and what actions society needs to take IMMEDIATELY to reduce the likelihood of even worse virus outbreaks in the future. If you want to arm yourself with the facts, then pop in those earbuds… this one’s for you.

In this episode we chat about:

  • His passion for zoonotic diseases and why the inhumane treatment of animals is the root problem of historical virus outbreaks (6:05)
  • How COVID-19 is different from the flu and why has it impacted entire countries in such different ways (8:18)
  • Why staying outside is safer than social distancing inside a closed environment (10:54)
  • The true flaws of the current testing system and why the worldwide cases just keep increasing (12:50)
  • The truth (finally!) about herd immunity and how long it may take for us to achieve it (16:18)
  • All you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine’s current development and future safety (18:19)
  • How to avoid getting COVID-19 and the best way to keep yourself and your family well and safe  (25:39)
  • Why effective disease prevention actually starts on your plate (28:42)
  • Plus so much more!
