2. Plant-based diets help reduce the risks of chronic diseases.
It's a scientific fact that many people who eat processed foods, meat, and dairy have higher risks for certain diseases. These diseases can include heart disease and many different kinds of cancers. People who consume a mostly plant-based diet, on the other hand, have had lower instances of these diseases. Switching to plant-based diets can be helpful if you have certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's, cancers, or heart disease, running in your family. Preventative care is a great key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
