In these videos, Dr. Peter Attia addresses concerns about coronavirus. I’ve collected these here to make them easier for my students to access. In them, Attia addresses:

  • FASTING AND CORONAVIRUS. He points out that prolonged fasting (48 hours or longer) can raise cortisol and actually weaken the immune system.
  • The shortage of hospital beds for the expected number of patients
  • What we know about the virus and what we don’t
  • What practical steps we can take to protect ourselves and our communities
  • The importance of flattening the curve, to prevent overloading our medical system; and lessons we can learn from what’s happening in Italy.
