Have you ever wondered if what we eat might have anything to do with our body's ability to fight the coronavirus? Or, that what we eat might impact our emotional resilience and therefore, our mindset & outlook as we navigate this ever-evolving global pandemic?
To date, no serious attempt has been made to understand the correlation between COVID-19 symptom severity, physical and emotional resilience and dietary patterns amongst the US public. Project GAIA is a unique and first effort in this regard and is committed to helping uncover the connection our diet may have with the suffering we’re surrounded with during the pandemic. Additionally, this study is also exploring how Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) such as food access & nutrition security impact likelihood of severe COVID among diverse communities, and how all of this is linked to dietary patterns.
Seeds to Inspire Foundation is honored to be a partner-collaborator of Project GAIA. The data collection and analysis phase of this public health research study was supported by T Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, The VegFund, A Well Fed World and The Virsa Foundation. Team GAIA has just wrapped up 8 weeks of data collection from around the United States and thanks to over 50 partners, they have received an overwhelmingly positive response to their survey. As the team enters into the next phase of this research – data analysis, manuscript development and communications development – they have launched a GoFundMe Campaign. Please donate to Project GAIA’s research efforts. Every dollar counts!
