Why A Plant-Based Diet? Did You Know This?

 

There are numerous​ ​reasons why someone adopts a plant-based diet. In terms of health, there are studies​ ​documenting how a ​ ​plant-based​ ​diet​ may be healthier​ ​than​ ​diets containing​ ​animal​ ​ products.​ With a plant-based diet, you avoid​ ​cholesterol,​ ​saturated ​ ​fat, carcinogens as well as ​growth​ ​hormones​ ​and​ ​antibiotics that can be found in a meat-based diet. Vegan ​diets​ can be​ ​higher​ ​in​ ​fiber,​ ​antioxidants,​ ​and​ ​vitamins​ ​and​ ​minerals.

 

A recent​ ​study​ ​funded​ ​by​ ​the​ ​National​ Cancer​ ​Institute​ ​reported​ ​that​ ​vegans​ ​have​ ​lower rates​ ​of​ cancer​ ​than​ ​both​ ​meat-eaters​ ​and​ ​vegetarians. In addition, the American​ ​Dietetic​ ​Association​ ​has​ ​said "appropriately​ ​planned vegetarian​ ​diets,​ ​including​ ​total​ ​vegetarian​ ​or​ ​vegan​ ​diets,​ ​are​ ​healthful,​ ​nutritionally adequate,​ ​and​ ​may​ ​provide​ ​health benefits​ ​in​ ​the​ ​prevention​ ​and​ ​treatment​ ​of​ ​certain diseases.​ ​Well-planned​ ​vegetarian​ ​diets​ ​are​ ​appropriate​ ​for​ ​individuals during all​ ​stages​ ​of​ ​the​ ​life​ ​cycle,​ ​including​ ​pregnancy, ​ ​lactation,​ ​infancy,​ ​childhood,​ ​and adolescence,​ ​and​ ​for​ athletes.”​ ​The​ ​ADA​ ​has​ ​also​ ​said​ ​that​ ​”Not​ ​only​ ​is​ mortality​ ​from coronary​ ​heart​ ​disease​ ​lower​ ​in​ ​vegetarians​ ​than in non-vegetarians,​ ​but​ ​vegetarian diets​ ​have​ ​also​ ​been successful​ ​in​ ​arresting​ ​coronary​ ​heart​ ​disease.​ ​Scientific​ ​data suggest​ ​positive​ ​relationships​ ​between​ ​a​ ​vegetarian​ ​diet​ ​and reduced​ ​risk​ ​for…obesity, coronary​ ​artery​ ​disease,​ ​hypertension,​ ​diabetes​ ​mellitus,​ ​and​ ​some​ ​types​ ​of​ ​cancer.”

 

Each year there are more plant-based products that come into the market because of the strong demand by consumers living a plant-based lifestyle.
