Vegan Diet Heralded as Health Solution

Paws Up!

To the World Preservation Foundation for its report on promoting vegan diets.

The World Preservation Foundation issued a report to the Members of Parliament in the United Kingdom entitled Plant-Based Diets: A Solution to Our Public Health Crisis.

According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, collaborator on the report and Director of Research for the Nutritional Research Project for the National Health Association, “New dietary guidelines emphasizing nutrient-rich plant foods can enable modern populations to dramatically improve their health, dramatically reduce healthcare costs, while at the same time save millions of needless deaths from heart disease, strokes, cancer and diabetes. It is time for an evolution in healthcare where prevention via proper diet, not drugs, becomes the foundation of modern healthcare.”

A plant-based diet not only helps humans live more healthy lives, it reduces the amount of death and degradation to farmed animals, preserves the environment, reduces the amount of water used to process food, and creates a surplus food supply in areas where hunger is most prevalent.

Take Action: Please take a moment to thank the World Preservation Foundation for its in-depth report that promotes healthy plant-based eating. Then, take a look at your own eating habits. Are they in line with the report’s message? If not, what can you do today to eat healthy not only for yourself but for your planet?
