Mankind evolved to eat meat, and plants, making us omnivores. In recent years, however, there has been an increase in the number of people who are saying no to meat and making the switch to eating plant-based diets instead. This is partly because of increased awareness of animal rights and also awareness of the need to be more environmentally conscious.

Many people are also turning toward eating plant-based foods over meat and processed foods, even if they are not vegetarian, in a bid to cut down on their meat consumption. This is partly down to the benefits involved, some of which are listed in further detail here.

1. Reduces Heart Disease

Heart disease is one of the biggest killers among people of a certain age. It is also often avoidable and a result of personal lifestyle choices. Far fewer people would die from heart disease if only they took better care of themselves. This includes avoiding certain types of food.

Processed foods and meat tend to be high in cholesterol and saturated fats. Plant-based diets contain none of these, making them far healthier for us to eat. Changing to a plant-based diet can help to remove excess fat from areas like the abdomen and waist, while it can also help remove fatty tissue build-up in blood vessels and organs.
