THI has been providing leadership in the international response to COVID-19 by creating a Coronavirus Pandemic Working Group and a clearinghouse for vital COVID-19 information. Comprised of scientists, risk modelers, public health experts, doctors and other health professionals, THI’s rapid response team has been working non-stop on our nation’s most acute COVID-19 concerns. This team has consolidated the expertise of over a dozen public health and academic experts to provide leaders with evidence-based responses and models to prepare for boots-on-the-ground implementation.

Please consider making a donation to support our work so we can continue to strategize, mobilize, and analyze information to optimize both public and personal health.

COVID, Life Expectancy, and “Why” In Our Blind Spot: Oh Say, Can We See?

AUTHOR: David L. Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP, FACLM

The major medical news of this past week, certainly grim and described in many outlets as “staggering,” was the reported decline in average U.S. life expectancy since the onset of the COVID19 pandemic. The decrease is the largest seen since the devastation of World War II (although roughly ten times less than that of the 1918 pandemic), and resets trends in mean life expectancy in the US back 15 years, to where things stood in 2006.

Defending FACTS, Fighting Falsehoods

There seems to be a new diet competing with an old diet in every news cycle. But scientists are not confused, confounded, or at war. We take a moment to talk about an underappreciated topic: methodology.

Modernize the Definition of Protein Quality

We call upon the Commissioner of the FDA and the US Secretary of Agriculture to commission a working group of the National Academy of Medicine to modernize the formal definition of protein quality to one that better serves both public, and planetary health.

Nearly all of us will fail at our annual round of New Year’s resolutions, which historically are led by eating better and losing weight. But the struggle for your health is not a battle between you and the scale, or you and the brownies.
