USDA Praises Plant-Based Diets

USDA Praises Plant-Based Diets | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

USDA Praises Plant-Based Diets.  Now, for the first time, The U.S. Department of Agriculture is talking about truly good foods, rather than just scientifically discuss nutrients.

The guidelines explain clearly that near-vegetarian and vegetarian diets are adequate and have even resulted in better health.

 

In studies of adults, compared to non-vegetarian eating patterns, vegetarian-style eating patterns have been associated with improved health outcomes–lower levels of obesity, a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and lower total mortality. Several clinical trials have documented that vegetarian eating patterns lower blood pressure. On average, vegetarians consume a lower proportion of calories from fat (particularly saturated fatty acids); fewer overall calories; and more fiber, potassium and vitamin C than do non-vegetarians. Vegetarians generally have a lower body mass index.
