According to Reuters, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has come out in favor of a #plantbased diet for both kids and adults.
The leading group of nutritionists said plant-based diets are tied to a lower risk of health problems, such as certain cancers, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The academy also reports that vegetarian and vegan diets are appropriate for all stages of life, including early childhood, pregnancy, adolescence, and old age.
In a position statement published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the group explains that this is because a #plantbaseddiet contains more fruits and vegetables, fewer sweets and salty snacks, and smaller amounts of total and saturated fats.
Vandana Sheth, a registered dietitian, nutritionist, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, states:
People who adopt vegetarian diets have a lower body mass index, better control of blood pressure and blood glucose, less inflammation and lower cholesterol levels compared with non-vegetarians.
This isn’t the first report to advocate a plant-based diet. Study after study has shown that a plant-based diet is beneficial to your health. The World Health Organization asserts that processed meats are just as hazardous to your health as cigarettes. Additionally, earlier this year the Mayo Clinic reported that switching to a plant-based diet could add up to four years to your life.
If the threat of cancer and diabetes weren’t enough, animals farms are treated like machines, and their short lives are filled with misery and deprivation.
On the flipside, here are the top health concerns linked to meat consumption.
3.Stroke. Because meat causes blockages in blood vessels, it's no surprise that it leads to strokes. ...
6.Harmful Cholesterol. ...
8.Erectile Dysfunction...and more..
