Veg Diet is Nutritionally Adequate, Beneficial

A comprehensive new study rebuts the recurring myth that vegetarian diets are lacking in essential nutrients.


A new report published in the Medical Journal of Australia explores the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet—health-wise and environmentally—and dismisses the notion of vegetarian regimens being nutritionally insufficient. The article, titled “A plant-based diet—good for us and for the planet,” describes the meat-centric Western diet as “inequitable and unsustainable” as well as responsible for “huge and costly health problems.”  Additionally, it declares that “fears that a diet without meat may mean a lack of protein can be put to rest,” and affirms the connection between colorectal cancer and a high intake of red meat. Overall, it proposes that “diets dominated by plant foods are almost certainly the way of the future.”
