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.
