There is a new research study in the September 2020 issue of the journal Microbial Physiology, that takes a look at whether or not a vegetarian diet would help in preventing viral epidemics.
The article starts out by reminding readers that such infections agents as bacteria and viruses that have adapted to animal host can mutate and infect another host. While this is the case with an animal infectious agent in an animal, they point out that there has been no example of a plant virus changing its host organism to an animal that has been documented.
They note that one prevalent way that the virus or bacteria is transmitted is through people eating flesh. The authors conclude that the issue can be greatly reduced by shifting to a vegetarian diet.
