High Antioxidants = Veganism

Hi All,

As I continue my Vegan journey, I am finding more and more in research on the vast health benefits that are gained.

The chief one being that Vegans consume the highest amount of ‘Antioxidants’ compared to all other diets.

Antioxidants help to mop up free-radicals which can harm our cells and cause other health issues, Increasing one’s antioxidant intake is essential for optimum health, especially in today’s polluted world. Because the body just can’t keep up with antioxidant production, a good amount of these vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals.

Data from the Adventist Health Study showed that nonvegetarians had a substantially increased risk of both colorectal and prostate cancer than did Vegans. A Vegan diet provides a variety of cancer-protective dietary factors.

In addition, obesity is a significant factor, increasing the risk of cancer at a number of sites. Because the mean BMI of vegans is considerably lower than that of nonvegetarians, it may be an important protective factor for lowering cancer risk.
