VEGGIE DIETS | health benets o plant-based diets
Scientifc evidence continues to mount regarding the healthbenefts o plant-based diets. They can cut the risk o killer diseasessuch as heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. They are useul incontrolling diabetes, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. Theyare an invaluable way o maintaining a healthy weight, and can addyears to lie expectancy.
Consider cancer, or instance. A poor diet is the second largest preventable risk actoror cancer, coming close behind smoking. An estimated 70 per cent o cancers could beprevented by diet
. Yet according to a nationwide survey
, nearly 83 per cent o thegeneral cancer population are not given any dietary advice by healthcare teams ollowingcancer diagnosis – and nor are they directed elsewhere.The majority o patients would like more inormation on healthy eating than they receive.Many would like to receive this inormation at the point o diagnosis.A urther study
acknowledges that GPs and nurses simply do not have the time,knowledge or skills to advise their patients about desirable dietary practices.This is exactly why health charity the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation (VVF) was set up.We aim to become the major resource on vegetarian and vegan health and nutritionor health proessionals and the public – publishing imaginative guides to help thepublic’s understanding o health; launching dynamiccampaigns; producing groundbreaking scienticreports; and producing simple act sheets on complexsubjects. See the end o this guide or a ull list o ourresources and details o how to order.Some key research regarding the many healthbenets o vegetarian and vegan diets is highlightedover the page.
