Review Paper Finds Vegan Diets Chock Full Of Health Benefits

Those on the fence about the health benefits of the vegan diet need only to look at the results of a review paper recently conducted by Winston J Craig, PhD, a scientist at Andrews University.

This researcher investigated more than 110 published research articles that looked at the health effects of veganism.

According to Craig, vegans eat significantly more health-boosting nutrients in their daily diet, including folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants.

He also notes that research has shown a vegan diet to be protective against cardiovascular disease, certain forms of cancer, obesity and osteoporosis. However, he implores vegans to supplement with zinc, vitamin B-12 and iron to ensure that they meet other nutritional needs.

This doesn’t mean everyone has to turn vegan. Small steps to increase plant-based-diet can make wonders in combating diseases and improve health.
