One of the most compelling reasons to make the switch to a plant-based diet is for your health.

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, found that vegetarians were less likely to be obese than their meat-eating counterparts. 

Additionally, it’s been shown that vegetarians have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and a lower risk of heart disease.

Health Benefits of Following a Vegetarian Diet

In addition to these benefits, vegetarians also have a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, and other serious diseases. And because they’re eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, they’re getting more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals than those who don’t eat a vegetarian or vegan diet.

The Environmental Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet

People are always looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment. In fact, some people have even adopted vegetarian or vegan lifestyles as a way to minimize their impact on the environment. 

By switching to a plant-based diet, you can do your part in reducing pollution, deforestation, and water waste. A plant-based diet helps conserve resources and protects the environment by not using animal products.
