People who follow a vegan diet display lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure.  They also have a less likely chance of getting colon and prostate cancer, as well as a decreased rate of ischemic heart disease.

Veganism is a dietary lifestyle that, after much research, is found to be beneficial in many ways. Going vegan can help one’s health in a gargantuan way. Vegan foods are often lower in both cholesterol and calories.

Veganism is not limited to just health benefits; every hour, 500,000 animals are killed in the USA alone for the meat industry. By going vegan, an individual saves up to 200 animals a year.

Eating meat has been proven to be detrimental to the environment as well. Nearly 20% of man-made pollution comes from slaughterhouses. This can lead to greenhouse gases being released into the air.

The grain that is used to feed livestock could feed 1.3 billion people. Moreover, 80% of the cases of food poisoning are from infected meat.

It takes 2,500 gallons to make just one pound of meat. On the other hand, it only takes twenty-five gallons of our valuable water to grow one pound of wheat,” theflamingvegan.com writes.

Protein can be obtained by eating nuts, certain fruits, and vitamins that can be bought at most shopping markets.
