“The growing body of evidence points to the benefits of eating more plant-derived foods and reducing the impact of processed, chemical-laden, and toxic foods,” said Dr. Andrew Kolodny, the lead author of the study, in a press release.
According to the study published in the journal BMC Public Health, researchers conducted an in-depth review of the literature to determine the optimal foods for vegans and omnivores alike.
The researchers found that the optimal diet is one where there are no animal products, and that vegan and vegetarian diets contain the same number of plant sources of protein, fiber, and vitamins.
They also noted that the “benefits of plant protein can be substantial” when compared to that of animal protein.
With the availability of such a large variety of vegan and omnivalve options, it is crucial that people start making their own decisions regarding their food choices.
In order to consume the most effective and nutrient-dense foods, consumers should consider the following foods: Consuming raw vegan food is not recommended, but some studies have found that a variety vegan and raw foods can provide significant amounts of protein.
This research also found that plant proteins are superior to animal protein in terms of quality and nutrient content, but that raw vegan and vegan-based diets can still provide significant benefits.
In the study authors, Dr. Christopher Boulton and Dr. Daniela Hallett, stressed that the data supporting plant- based diets as a healthy and effective diet were limited.
However, they did say that there was a growing body.
The authors stated that, while the results of this study were limited, they hope that future studies will confirm that the plant-powered diet is superior to the animal-based diet.
According to their study, vegan and vegetarians can consume vegan and organic food without any negative health effects, while omnivore and carnivore eat the same amount of plant products.
So, in addition to the overall health benefits, the plant foods are also lower in saturated fat, cholesterol, and other harmful substances that have been linked to cardiovascular disease and cancer.
