The loss we're experiencing is heartbreaking. Not to mention, we're acutely aware that the virus is disproportionately affecting impoverished and BIPOC communities. And yet, COVID-19 has become a pandemic of polarization with very little conversation in the sensible middle. Rather than coming together as a society, as a country, and more specifically as a wellness community, so many have taken the path of extremes when it comes to COVID-19. But no matter which side you’re on, preventative medicine specialist, David Katz, MD, believes it’s time for a COVID reality check. On this episode, Katz joins mbg co-CEO, Jason Wachob, to discuss how we can reach middle ground (and why we should) when it comes to the coronavirus, plus: *Herd immunity & why there's no such thing as a zero-risk scenario* *Why there's no better time for a "get healthy" campaign* *Why we shouldn't wait for a vaccine before going back to the world* *Why you might have native resistance to COVID-19* *How mainstream media perpetuates our fear* To learn more about our Functional Nutrition Coaching Program, where you can get a solid foundation in nutrition from 19 of the world’s top doctors and experts, visit mindbodygreen.com/coaching.

Thanks for putting meditation on my level; with two jobs as a single mom, sooooo many new age gurus have recommendations that are unattainable!

I call Bull Shit! PepsiCo products really? You just allowed this guy to have a free commercial. They buy small companies diminish the quality of nutrients in the products and industrialize the process. I'm shocked you would see him as a valuable voice in the world of health.
