Importance of plant-based diet

Importance of plant-based diet

Rashmi Janak
A vegetarian diet excludes meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products. It is common for vegetarians to follow a plant-based diet like that as a means of preventing or treating illness. A vegetarian diet can reduce the risks of chronic diseases like obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer by increasing the consumption of vegetables, grains, fruit, nuts, and fiber and reducing saturated fat and cholesterol intake. Plant-based diets, however, are considered by some to increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies. For vegetarians, fortified foods or supplements can help them meet their dietary requirements by carefully arranging their diet and consistently ingesting them. Providing information about the health benefits and recommendations of a plant-based diet to people considering becoming vegetarians, we carefully describe and analyze the relations between vegetarian diets and BMI, obesity, and cardiovascular disease, followed by the relationship between vegetarian diets and mortality from the most common causes of death and cancer.
