Number Five: Less Likely to Have Diabetes
Diabetes might be genetic but it doesn’t mean that the predisposition to the illness will equate to having it. Vegans are less prone to having the disease. In fact there are many vegan programs out there curing Type 2 diabetes with nothing more than a vegan diet.
In a report published by ABC news:
People who ate a low-fat vegan diet, cutting out all meat and dairy, lowered their blood sugar more and lost more weight than people on a standard American Diabetes Association diet, researchers said on Thursday. They lowered their cholesterol more and ended up with better kidney function, according to the report published in Diabetes Care, a journal published by the American Diabetes Association.
