On Tuesday, popular business and entertainment site Business Insider featured a list of “7 Reasons to Go On a Plant-Based Diet.” Top benefits include reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, which is “entirely preventable” through a healthy, plant-based diet; heart health, which studies have shown to improve with each serving of fruits and vegetables consumed per day; and weight loss, due to a lower average calorie intake. Other reasons cited include hypertension control, greater fiber intake, and improved skin and vision. Although BI’s standards for a plant-based diet do allow for small amounts of fish and lean meat, it emphasizes that “choosing a diet heavy in fruits and veggies may help ward off chronic diseases and keep you svelte.”
