Whoever you are, it is probable that you will be infected by a virus at some time in your life. There are over 220 viruses that affect humans - many of them highly contagious and some of them a serious danger to human health and life, including the most recent SARS-CoV-2 virus.
On the 21st January 2020 the first U.S. case of the Coronavirus was identified - a man returning to the States from China was found to be infected with the virus. It appears to have originated from a wet fish market in Wuhan, though some argue it ultimately came from the adjacent virology laboratory. 'Origins investigations' continue.
Where we stand now, in the Summer of 2021, this virus is estimated to have infected almost 200 million cases - though numbers may be much larger than that - and over 4 million people are confirmed to have died as a result of COVID-19, the name of the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The levels of contagion have been high.
Whether you recover from a viral illness lightly or you end up being hospitalized largely depends on your overall state of health, especially on the effectiveness of your immune system. Adults, children, elderly and new-borns - no age or people is immune from contracting viral illnesses.
Once a virus invades a person's body, it uses that person as a host in order to survive. While they are infected by a virus - like SARS-CoV2 - a person may become ill. In the case of COVID-19 - so similar in many ways to influenza - emergency action must be taken if certain symptoms present themselves, including hospitalization if needed.
Viruses affect different people to varying extents. Where one can escape with a light cough or mere headaches, another person can end up being dependent on life-support. Sadly, many viral infections lead to serious illness and long-term debilitative conditions. There is no predicting how severely someone will be impacted by a virus.
Sadly, some of us are not strong enough to survive viral illnesses. For instance, over 35 million people are estimated to have died from AIDS since it was identified and an ancient virus like Smallpox has been responsible for having caused hundreds of millions of deaths worldwide.
Sadly, even after vaccination against a virus, a person may end up being infected by it and contracting illness. When a person's general state of health is poor - especially if their immune system is weak - then viruses can still overpower them, even leading to death.
While people still continue to die in their millions due to a variety of viruses worldwide - including Hepatitis, Dengue, AIDS, Influenza and SARS-CoV-2 - a growing community of people in countries across the globe have been asking: "Is it possible that more can be done to defend against viruses?"
No matter who you are, it is probable that you will be infected by a virus at some time in your life. Whether you recover from a viral illness will largely depend on your state of health, above all the effectiveness of your immune system. Adults and children, the elderly and babies - none are completely immune from contracting viral infections, no matter what their age or nation.
The fact is that viruses affect different people to varying extents. Where one escapes with a light cough or mere headaches, another person can end up being hospitalized, fully dependent on life-support. Sadly, many viral infections lead to death or long-term debilitative conditions. There is simply no predicting how severely someone's life will be hit by a viral disease.
In spite of the ingenuities of modern medicine - which include targeted immunizations, anti-viral drugs and technological advances in treatment and many new branches of therapy - too often an illness is too far advanced for any of these to be enough. In spite of all the best efforts of the medical community, illnesses viral illness can prove to be insurmountable for some.
The CDC, NIH, USDA and WHO all recommend that we eat a fully nutritious range of food so as to be in a better position to defeat illnesses - while scientists internationally have been engaged in wide-ranging research on how dietary ingredients are capable of deterring viruses and strengthening immunity.
The last 50 years have taught us more about diet than we had learnt in the previous 5000 years. Food chemistry - combined with dietetics, the study of infectious diseases, virology and other disciplines - has taught us about numerous mechanisms with which dietary ingredients can defend against viruses.
It has been discovered that our nutritional status - whether we eat healthily or not - has a key determining impact on how prone we will be to bacteria, cancers, chronic diseases and all manner of negative health conditions. We have only recently learnt how dietary ingredients can also overcome viruses.
Research project 'AVD' explores the relationship between what we eat and how this protects or weakens us against viruses. The first volume of findings released by 'AVD' shares
key findings from the last half-century of research, including crucial evidence about COVID-19 and dietary ingredients.

'AVD' is a 3-Phase Research Project launched by The Academy of the Third Millennium (A3M). Phase 1 of this scientific inquiry is now complete and a summary of the findings are presented in the volume 'AVD: The Anti-Viral Diet' (2020/2021) available from this site. Information about the progress and purpose of Phases 2 and 3 of this ongoing A3M research program will be shared at the NEWS page on this website.
