Eating meat or other animal products not only harms animals and the environment: it can also have a negative impact on health. Eating processed meat increases our risk of developing cancer, and research suggests that eating animal meat, milk and eggs could be as bad for our health as smoking.
With a healthy and balanced vegan diet rich in whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, pulses, grains, nuts and seeds, and supplemented with vitamin B12, you can get all the nutrients you need. Several studies have reported that people who eat vegan tend to consume more fiber, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, folate, and vitamins A, C and E.
It's obvious that a compassionate lifestyle that avoids harming animals will give you a clearer conscience, and studies show that vegans may be happier than meat eaters. In fact, vegans and vegetarians performed better on depression tests and mood profiles than those who ate fish and meat.
Vegan foods tend to be lower in calories than animal foods, making it easier to achieve a healthy weight without actively focusing on calorie reduction. Most vegan foods contain much less saturated fat than animal products, and many studies have shown that vegans tend to have a lower body mass index than non-vegans.
This diet may help prevent type 2 diabetes
Research has shown that people who eat vegan tend to have lower blood sugar levels than non-vegans and can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 78%. Eating plenty of healthy, plant-based foods can also help reduce risk factors associated with developing diabetes, such as obesity.
Your skin may also benefit
Who doesn't want a glowing complexion? When it comes to skin problems, one of the worst culprits is milk - many studies have shown that consuming dairy products exacerbates acne in both men and women. Besides getting rid of dairy, vegans generally eat more fruits and vegetables, which means they get more of the good things needed for healthy skin, like antioxidants and vitamins.
Eating vegan can reduce arthritis pain
Studies have shown that eating a diet rich in healthy vegan foods can help reduce symptoms of arthritis, as consumption of animal-source foods is linked to painful inflammation of the joints. Consuming plant-based probiotic foods like fermented vegetables and non-dairy yogurt with live cultures can stimulate good bacteria in the large intestine, which also helps boost nutrient absorption and reduce inflammation.
