Meat is among one of the worst foods we can put into our bodies. Research has shown again and again the damage that it can do to our hearts. We know that animal protein has been linked to an increased risk of cancer and disease. The small potential benefits of consuming animal food are far and few between. Now, Harvard Medical School scientists are concluding what we at Hallelujah Diet have always known: Avoiding meat could eliminate an astonishing number of early deaths.
As Science Alert reported, the team of Harvard researchers presented their findings at the Unite to Cure Fourth International Vatican Conference in Vatican City last month. Though the data has not been published, the team claims that a vegan diet could reduce as much as a third of early deaths around the world. Early deaths from obesity, cigarettes and other external factors, also known as preventable deaths, claim millions of lives every year.
Dr. Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Medical School and member of the research team acknowledged that still today, the power of a plant-based diet has been “vastly underestimated,” The Telegraph reported. The new calculations indicate that as many as 200,000 deaths could be prevented annually if people switch to a meat-free, plant-based diet. Moreover, Willet acknowledged that even that figure is an underestimate. The findings did not take into account smoking habits or obesity, two external factors that could prevent even more early deaths if eliminated.
