Wappingers Falls, N.Y.: In “Another reason to oust Dr. Zucker” (op-ed, Sept. 12), the writer correctly cites the lack of preventive medical attention given to rampant diabetes and other chronic diseases that also contribute to the spread of COVID. While doctors solely push for masks and injections, nothing is said about eating to build immunity and avoid disease. It’s preferable to maintain a vegan diet to avoid illness; this method of nutrition is proven to lessen the likelihood of contracting many illnesses, including heart disease, high blood pressure, colon cancer and asthma, and to substantially lessen the impact of Parkinson’s and rheumatoid arthritis. This diet is especially effective in reducing Type 2 diabetes. Avoiding dairy should be automatic during COVID outbreaks. Dairy is proven to be mucous-producing in the lungs, the target area of COVID infections. Dairy is acidic, which is linked to inflammation, autoimmune diseases and chronic pain. Yliana Franco
