A new study shows how consuming a plant-based diet can help you stay healthy and prevent obesity and heart disease.
The results have implications for the development of diet therapies and a potential new approach to combating Type 2 diabetes.
Researchers at the University of Utah, the University at Buffalo and the University College London analyzed the diets of over 5,000 people who were either vegetarian or vegan.
They found that vegetarians had lower rates of diabetes, lower blood pressure and lower body mass index.
The team also found that the vegetarians consumed more fiber and protein, which could help keep their blood sugar levels in check.
The researchers found that a vegan diet that included more plant-derived foods and vegetables was linked to a significantly lower risk of diabetes and heart problems.
“We know that a lot of people are trying to find ways to lower cholesterol levels,” said study co-author Dr. Richard Burt, an assistant professor of medicine at the university.
“The most important thing for people to understand is that the most important dietary change is actually to eat a lot more fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals.”
While the vegetarian diet was associated with lower rates and a lower risk for diabetes, it was also linked to lower rates for some heart diseases.
The vegetarian diet also had lower blood pressures, which can help keep people healthier and help them live longer.
The researchers said they didn’t know why the plant-powered diet was linked with fewer heart attacks and diabetes.
“The question we really wanted to ask was, why are these things that are so beneficial for people, but not beneficial for others?” said Burt.
“We were hoping to see if there were differences in heart disease or other cardiovascular diseases between the vegetarian and nonvegetarian diets.”
The researchers also found the vegetarian diet was also associated with higher levels of HDL, which is a type of fat that helps protect the arteries, the main arteries in the body.
HDL is linked to better cardiovascular health, lower risk factors for heart disease and a longer lifespan.
Burt said this could be because the vegetative diet is more balanced.
“It doesn’t have as much saturated fat, so there’s less trans fat, and the fiber and fiber-rich vegetables that are rich in fiber are also more beneficial than the saturated fat and trans fat in most diets,” he said.
“And then there’s also the antioxidants in the whole plant-foods and fiber that are not consumed as much in our diets.”
So this is a really good example of how you can really optimize your health by eating less saturated fat.
“The research was published online on Thursday in the journal PLOS ONE.
The findings suggest that a diet low in saturated fat could lower the risk of heart disease, but it also could have other benefits, Burt said.
The research is important because it could help scientists develop dietary therapies that target certain diseases and help reduce health care costs, he said.”
Burt is a researcher at the Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York State Department of Health and Long-Term Care. “
So we’re just starting to really understand the role of fiber in different health outcomes and it’s really exciting that we have this research to help us answer that question.”
