Documented below are some questions that lead researcher Edouard d'Araille has answered in interview. These are only provisional answers but it is hoped that they might be of assistance. Please send any questions you have to The Academy of the Third Millennium or send a direct message via Facebook.com/theantiviraldiet.
"An Anti-Viral Diet' is a diet whose primary purpose is to counteract viral threats and to maximize the ability of our immune systems to fight off both viruses and viral diseases."
"Foods are purposely included that scientific evidence has shown possess anti-viral and/or immunomodulatory properties. The 52 ingredients of the current diet are foods - or compounds within food - whose anti-viral qualities have received sufficient scientific corroboration."
"Over the last 50 years, the amount of evidence in favour of the hypothesis of an 'Anti-Viral Diet' has become overwhelming. Articles in support of this idea are published all year round in medical and scientific journals from all continents of the world. 'AVD' includes reference to the work of over 1000 scientific researchers."
"An 'Anti-Viral Diet' may not be a cure for illnesses. All we can base firm conclusions on is what science can prove. But there is good reason to believe - on the basis of the evidence that already exists - that the consumption of certain ingredients with anti-viral properties (and/or immunomodulatory qualities) can help to prevent infection by a number of viruses and enhance the rate of recovery from some viral illnesses."
"The term 'Anti-Viral 5-a-Day' introduces the idea that if we know certain ingredients have anti-viral properties, then we should make an effort to eat at least five items per day that belong to that family of ingredients. The proposal of having five portions of anti-viral foods every day is an adaptation of the successful WHO initiative that encourages the eating of '5-a-Day' in terms of Fruit and Vegetables."
"The diet proposed in 'AVD' is at no time presented as a cure for COVID-19. However, this book presents the results of a significant amount of scientific research which verify that the majority of ingredients identified in this study have anti-viral properties against SARS-CoV-2 or exert effects against COVID-19. Following 'AVD' may help prevention and improve treatment outcomes but at no point is it claimed to be a 'Cure' for COVID-19."

It's time to learn if diet could make a change to this Coronavirus pandemic.
"An 'Anti-Viral Diet' works by introducing a larger number of anti-viral ingredients into a person's dietary intake than might happen otherwise. A person following such a diet maintains an awareness of the ingredients that are best indicated by science as having anti-viral properties of some kind - and makes a deliberate effort to include these in their daily drinks and meals."
"No, AVD is not presented as THE anti-viral diet, one that is better than or more important to all other suggestions. This is just one book proposing the validity of the idea of an anti-viral diet in general - one which at the same time puts forward a prototype for such a diet, based around the idea that ingesting more portions of anti-viral ingredients is likely to offer us more protection against viral infection and resultant illnesses."
"At no point in 'AVD' is it stated that Diet can be a Cure for Illness. However, an overwhelming quantity of statistics do indicate that persons and populations with a higher intake of certain healthy nutrients - many of which are included in this diet - appear to be less vulnerable to viral infections as well as being less prone to their associated illnesses. What is suggested here is that a diet richer in ingredients with known anti-viral properties may be more likely to prevent infection and disease progression than one that lacks those ingredients."
"On the basis of numerous studies undertaken since the SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged, some firm links have been established between diet and proneness to infection. For example, nations with a higher Selenium intake have been at less risk, as have countries whose diets naturally include fermented foods. Many studies are still on-going and more results need to be analyzed before any general conclusions are drawn."
"On the basis of the evidenced efficacy of numerous dietary elements against other Coronaviruses and the preliminary results of several studies undertaken since the emergence of the current Coronavirus, it does appear that certain natural compounds do have therapeutic potential against COVID-19 and may improve disease outcome. However, what is urgently needed are a large body of well-founded, properly regulated clinical trials."
'AVD' has been published in order to answer as many questions as possible, both general and specific, about the idea of an 'Anti-Viral Diet'. The FREE 100-Page Sampler gives more information and preliminary answers about an 'Anti-Viral Diet' than could be included on this page. Click Here to download now.
