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.

Sources of Nutrition

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes a lot of people wrongly think that a Vegan diet lacks many of the bodies essential nutrients.

A vegan diet does require planning to ensure there is variety and the right combination of green foods, grains, and beans to give the body what it needs.

Below are some infographics to show how easy it is.

Anti-Veganism

As the popularity and awareness of the benefits of veganism grow’s around the world, so does the anti-sentiment builds towards it from local governments and food manufacturers.

Namely, it’s all about revenue being lost from the meat and dairy industries all of which have vested government interests.

France has recently announced that it is banning Vegan companies from advertising meat-free foods with meat sounding equivalent names! for example; Veggie Fish, Meat-free Lamb, etc.

Below is a list of other countries which are trying to undermine Vegan companies, restaurants, and Supermarket from having vegan options:

  • France
  • Argentina
  • Philippines
  • Iceland
  • China
  • Brazil
  • Korea
  • Russia
  • Mexico
  • Germany
  • Cuba
  • Spain

5K Vegan Runner

Hi Everyone,

I have achieved another of my personal challenges this week since becoming Vegan three months ago.

I have completed two 5K runs! I have never been a distance runner ever but I have found new energy levels since I change my diet.

I’ll be going for another 5K run next week and my target time is 25 min, it might take a couple more runs mind you.

It feels really great being Vegan!
