t’s very easy to come across conflicting information, especially in regards to the science of health and even more so when it comes to examining meat-based diets in comparison to plant-based ones. Plant-based diets can help prevent over over 60% of chronic disease deaths, yet people are still arguing whether veganism is a safe and sustainable diet. This is largely due to “food industry science,” which is full of bias and false information that’s constantly used in both our education and health care systems. This is neither a secret nor a conspiracy theory, as many people within these industries have come out publicly to address these issues and emphasize the same points…

Research suggests that replacing a diet of animal protein with that of plant protein could increase life expectancy.
A large study found that every 3 per cent increase in calories from plant protein reduced the risk of death from all causes by 10 per cent.
It was also associated with a 12 per cent lower risk of death from heart disease.
In contrast, raising the animal protein share of calories by 10 per cent led to a 2 per cent higher risk of all-causes of death and an 8 per cent greater chance of dying from a heart problem.
