Americans are experiencing three pandemics right now, according to wellness expert and best-selling author Deepak Chopra.
The first is the Covid-19 pandemic and loss of life associated with the virus, he said.
"The third pandemic is anxiety and stress and fear of death," said Chopra, founder of both The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global.
"If you have stress in you right now, anger, hostility, grief, which is happening, then you're going to compromise your immune system," said Chopra, who recently launched a new meditation app, Chopra Meditation & Well-Being.
"Adrenaline and other hormones go up, cause inflammation, make it more likely that you'll have a cardiovascular disease or metabolic syndrome," he added.
