    Want Disease Prevention- Just Go Vegan

    Human beings have evolved over time as omnivorous. However, we no longer live the lifestyle that our ancestors used to live thousands of years ago. As our lifestyle has changed in an enormous way, we should change our eating habits as well to adapt to this new way of living. Research has repeatedly proved that eating a healthy vegan diet do prevent a number of diseases. Here’s a list of diseases below what you could potentially avoid just by the simple change in eating habit- switching to a healthy, balanced vegan way.

    • Cardiovascular disease- Eating nuts and whole grains, at the same time eliminating dairy products and meat, is known to improve your cardiovascular health. A recent study in UK shows that a vegan diet reduces heart disease risk , as well as, Type 2 diabetes. Vegan diets do go far when it comes to preventing incidents like heart attack and stroke.
    • Cholesterol- Eliminating food coming from an animal is bound to eliminate all dietary cholesterol from your diet. Your heart will thank you by working better.
    • Blood pressure- A diet rich in whole grains is thought to be beneficial to your health in numerous ways, which includes lowering of high blood pressure.
    • Type 2 diabetes- A vegan diet is literally a weapon against Type 2 diabetes. It is also much more easier to follow than the diets recommended by standard organizations & experts like the American Diabetic Association.
    • Prostate cancer- A research shows that men who switched to a vegan diet in the early stages of prostate cancer either stopped the progress of the cancer or better still reversed the illness.
    • Colon cancer- Eating a whole grain diet, along with fresh fruits and vegetables, is known to greatly reduce chances of colon cancer as well.
    • Breast cancer- Regions where women eat very little meat and animal products seems to have a much lower rate of breast cancer than the women in areas that consume large amount of animal products.
    • Macular degeneration- The onset of age-related macular degeneration can be prevented by consuming diets with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially leafy greens, carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes.
    • Cataracts- Similar to macular degeneration, cataracts are also thought to be prevented through the consumption of the fruits and vegetables. These food products produce high antioxidants, which are believed to help prevent cataracts.
    • Arthritis- For a long time elimination of dairy consumption has been connected with alleviation of arthritis symptoms. But a recent survey indicates that a combination of gluten-free, as well as, vegan diet is very promising for improvement of the health of people, who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
    • Osteoporosis- Bone health depends largely on a balance of protein. Neither too much nor too little protein is required for healthy bone. Adequate calcium intake, high potassium, and low sodium is also needed. With a healthy vegan diet, all four of these points set a perfect scenario for preventing bone disease like osteoporosis.
