Why Countries With Animal-Based Diets Have More Coronavirus Deaths. High cholesterol diets are correlated with COVID-19 cases and deaths.
A meta-analysis of 54 studies concluded that “cholesterol levels possess an apparent relation to COVID-19 severity.”¹ On a molecular level, blood cholesterol enhances the infectivity of the SARS-CoV-2 virion and improves binding to the ACE2 receptor that carries the virus into cells.
For some people, high blood cholesterol is genetic, while for others, it comes from a diet high in animal products. You don’t need to consume cholesterol at all², which is why high-cholesterol foods like meat, eggs, milk, and other dairy products can increase blood cholesterol levels.
Analyzing a dataset of country-by-country nutrition and coronavirus statistics, we can see if there’s a correlation between high-cholesterol foods (animal products) and COVID-19 severity.
Indeed, using the analytics tool Apteo, we find a moderately strong correlation between egg consumption and COVID-19 death rate, where r²=0.35 and p ≈ 0.00. The x-axis below refers to the percentage of energy intake (kcal) from eggs, while the y-axis refers to the percentage deaths of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Data Science and Analytics market evolves to adapt to the constantly changing economic and business environments. Our latest survey report suggests that as the overall Data Science and Analytics market evolves to adapt to the constantly changing economic and business environments, data scientists and AI practitioners should be aware of the skills and tools that the broader community is working on. A good grip in these skills will further help data science enthusiasts to get the best jobs that various industries in their data science functions are offering.
