A recent article in the Dallas Morning News is encouraging people to adopt a vegan diet—or at least one that is primarily plant-based—in order to prevent heart disease and improve coronary health. The nutrition and health experts cited in the article agree that adopting a plant-based diet is undoubtedly heart-healthy, but acknowledge the social and psychological hurdles some may face when attempting to follow a vegan diet. In response, some experts recommend that people transition to veganism with the help of a nutritionist, cookbooks, and websites, while others recommend easing into a plant-based diet by limiting animal products to occasional indulgences.
