Aseem Malhotra: Cardiologist

We are in the war against Covid-19 for the long term. The virus is likely to be with us for many months and as we emerge from the global lockdowns, everyday life is looking very different. Re-imagining a post-coronavirus world will likely involve changes that go to the heart of how we live – our diet, personal hygiene, social behavior and work/life balance.  As we learn more about the virus, it is becoming clear that a healthy body is a vital prerequisite to fighting the disease.  In this episode of the Live Long and Master Aging podcast, Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a London-based cardiologist, explains why he believes obesity is a prime risk factor for mortality from Covid-19.  He also suggests that the pandemic should act as a wake-up call for global populations, pursuing unhealthy lifestyles, consuming too much sugar and processed foods.
