The Health Benefits of a Plant Based Diet

The Health Benefits of a Plant Based Diet

2018-01-29 
| by Mick Walker | Posted in VegfestUK Brighton 2018

In this guest blog, vegan cyclist and activist Mick Walker reflects upon the huge growth in veganism over the past years and previews his upcoming talk at VegfestUK Brighton, on the Health Benefits of a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet, on Sunday March 25th 2018 at 4pm. Tickets for the event are available here.

 

January 2018 feels to be a good time for vegans! Whilst there is absolutely no room for any complacency, VEGANUARY (www.veganuary.com) have had 165,000 people sign up and all the major supermarkets are falling over themselves to increase their ranges of plant-based products.

I have been promoting veganism for several years – including speaking regularly at vegan festivals. In the last year or two, the interest has been enormous – and I am quite sure this will continue with a vengeance in 2018!

 

The health issue of a vegan diet is still a major reason why many people are reluctant to make the change. Conventional medical advice is still that we cannot be healthy without animal protein and dairy products.

THIS COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!!

There is now a huge amount of evidence to demonstrate that humans were never meant to consume animal products and that the diet which best promotes health is one based 100% on Whole Plants – though so many people remain sceptical!

This is the topic on which I tend to speak whenever the opportunity arises. There is a lot of work being done in the USA on the benefits of a WFPB (Whole Food Plant Based) Diet and an increasing number of doctors who are turning towards advising people on diet and lifestyle, rather than prescribing drugs and medication.

I will be speaking about this at VegFestUK Brighton (www.brighton.vegfest.co.uk)  at 4pm on the Sunday.
