Nowadays, many people are switching not only to organic food but also to a vegan diet. The main reasons people mention for this step are above all the horrible treatment of animals on factory farms and bad effects factory farms and genetic engineering have on the environment and on the climate. In fact, factory farming is the climate killer number one.
However, some people also do it for the health benefits of a vegan diet. And those are tremendous. Animal fats are now proved to be among the major causes of many diseases of civilization like several kinds of cancer, diabetes, heart attacks and impotence. They are also among the causes for hemorrhoids.
Thus, switching to vegan diet, you will not only help the animals, the environment and the climate but also yourself. Actually, a vegan diet is suitable for all ages, including pregnancy and early childhood as the American Dietetic Association confirms. However, it should be well-balanced and supplemented by the essential vitamine B12.
