A widely held theory on aging pins some of the blame on compounds called free radicals, which gum up the works and facilitate the path toward disease. Research evidence continues to reveal how whole grains and nutrient-rich whole foods can combat free-radical damage. Phytochemicals, the beneficial compounds that plants evolved to help them survive, can help our bodies, as well. But it takes a plant-based, whole foods diet to facilitate that payoff. Eating well can help keep you off the sick list — though nothing can be guaranteed in this regard, of course — and, if you do become ill, can aid in faster wound healing, fewer surgical complications and shorter hospital stays. This is of critical importance in today’s debates about health care.
IQVIA™ (NYSE: IQV), in scientific partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will provide agile analytics from IQVIA’s CARE Project COVID-19 registry to support better understanding of how people in the community are affected by exposure to the coronavirus. IQVIA’s research will show what symptoms individuals experience, the length and severity and whether any medications or vitamin supplements they are taking affect the severity of their coronavirus symptoms.
The CARE Project is open to U.S. based residents who think they may have been exposed to the coronavirus, regardless of whether they have been diagnosed with COVID-19, including people who have continued with everyday life and may have been exposed. The project was established to advance understanding of COVID-19 as experienced in community settings.
The registry was launched in April 2020 and can be accessed at www.helpstopcovid19.com. Over three months, registrants are periodically asked to provide information
