Yes, according to a Harvard research study. It is the first large-scale study on diet and covid severity. It tracked 600,000 adults from the US and the UK and monitored their diet and covid severity for 8 months. The participants filled out a questionnaire detailing how many plants such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and beans they ate on a daily basis.
Those in the highest quartile who ate the most plant-based foods were 41 percent less likely to have serious covid-19 infections and 9 percent less likely to get infected.

How many plants are you eating on a daily basis? The cancer journey motivated me to up mine to 13!
