WHAT CHANGES OCCUR WHEN YOU GO (HEALTHY) VEGAN

position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics on vegan nutrition

“ABSTRACT
It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that appropriately planned
vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide
health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. These diets are
appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy,
childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes. Plant-based diets are more
environmentally sustainable than diets rich in animal products because they use fewer
natural resources and are associated with much less environmental damage. Vegetarians and vegans are at reduced risk of certain health conditions, including ischemic
heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain types of cancer, and obesity. Low
intake of saturated fat and high intakes of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, soy
products, nuts, and seeds (all rich in fiber and phytochemicals) are characteristics of
vegetarian and vegan diets that produce lower total and low-density lipoprotein
cholesterol levels and better serum glucose control. These factors contribute to reduction of chronic disease. Vegans need reliable sources of vitamin B-12, such as fortified
foods or supplements.

Low-Carbohydrate Diets Increase Risk for Heart Disorder

Low-carbohydrate diets increase the risk for atrial fibrillation (AFib), a common disorder of heart rhythm, according to a poster presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session. Researchers tracked daily carbohydrate intake in 14,000 diet records from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study and monitored incidences of heart arrhythmias. Those who consumed the least amount of carbohydrate increased the chance of developing AFib by 18 percent, compared with those who consumed the most carbohydrate. AFib is associated with a five-fold increased risk for stroke and may lead to heart failure. Carbohydrate restriction lowers intake of grains, fruits, and vegetables linked to reduced inflammation and may increase consumption of high-fat, high-protein foods associated with oxidative stress.

GENERAL BENEFITS OF PLANT-BASED NUTRITION

Animal Protein Linked to Death in Those with Cancer, Diabetes, and Heart Disease
 
Higher intakes of animal protein increased risk of death in those with cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, according to a study published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers followed the diets of 2,641 participants from the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study and compared protein intake with death from chronic disease. Those who consumed more meat and protein from animal-based sources in place of plant-based sources increased their risk of death from chronic disease by 23 percent. Possible mechanisms for the increased risk include decreased kidney function and increased production of cancer-related hormones associated with higher animal-based protein intake.
 
Virtanen HEK, Voutilainen S, Koskinen TT, et al. Dietary proteins and protein sources and risk of death: the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study. Am J Clin Nutr. Published online April 9, 2019

 

Vegan Diets Reduce the Risk for Chronic Disease

People following vegan diets are less likely to develop chronic diseases, compared with other dietary groups, according to a study funded by the NIH/National Cancer Institute. Researchers analyzed the diets of those following vegan, lacto-ovo-vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, pesco-vegetarian, and non-vegetarian eating patterns and tracked several health biomarkers. Based on those biomarkers, the vegan group had the lowest risk for cancer, heart disease, and hypertension, compared with the other groups. The vegan group also had higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and higher serum levels of carotenoids and isoflavones associated with lower inflammation. Vegans consumed the most fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes and had the highest intakes of beta-carotene and fiber and the lowest intakes of saturated fatty acids. The vegan group was the only group to be in a healthy weight range, while all other groups were overweight, on average. These findings offer more insight into the relationship between diet-related biomarkers and disease and support vegan diets as a healthful approach to disease prevention.

Plant-Based Diets Promote Healthy Gut Microbiome

High-fiber vegan diets promote healthful and stable gut bacteria, according to a review published in Frontiers in Nutrition. Increased intake of fiber and other plant components associated with plant-based diets increase the growth of beneficial bacteria that reduce inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk. Fiber also increases short-chain fatty acids linked to improved immunity and improved intestinal function. These conclusions indicate that diet contributes to healthful microbiome diversity more than any other factor, and a plant-based diet is the most effective means to ensure optimal gut health.

HEART

Lifestyle Modifications Effective for Heart Failure Treatment and Prevention

Lifestyle modifications, including diet changes, help treat and prevent heart failure, according to a new report published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Several researchers analyzed how lifestyle, such as weight management and nutrition, influences heart failure risk. Poor diet, minimal exercise, and stress all contribute to increased risk for heart failure, while more exercise, stress management, and plant-based eating proved most effective for reduced risk for heart failure. Clinicians should incorporate nutrition and exercise education into clinical practice to prevent and treat heart failure.

Vegan Diets Lead to Better Health
 
Those who follow a vegan diet are less likely to have cardiometabolic risk factors, compared with those who consume omnivorous diets, according to a new meta-analysis. Researchers analyzed 40 studies from more than a dozen countries to compare outcomes for people consuming vegan diets with those consuming omnivorous diets and found that people following vegan diets consumed fewer calories and less saturated fat and had lower body mass, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and fasting blood glucose, compared with controls. In Taiwan, there were fewer differences between the vegan and non-vegan groups. The authors suspect those defined as vegans in Taiwan adhere less strictly to a vegan diet while the omnivores there consume fewer animal products, compared with populations in other countries.

Replacing Red Meat with Plant Protein Lowers Risk for Heart Disease

Replacing red meat with plant-based protein sources lowers your risk for heart disease, according to a meta-analysis published in Circulation. Researchers reviewed studies that compared diets that included red meat with eating habits that replaced red meat with foods such as legumes and tracked cardiovascular disease risk factors. Plant-based protein sources in place of red meat produced improvements in blood lipids. Replacing red meat with fish did not reduce the risk for heart disease. The authors noted that reduced intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and increased intakes of fiber and antioxidants found in plants may be possible mechanisms for the improvements.

Ferré MG, Satija A, Blondin SA, et al. Meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of red meat consumption in comparison with various comparison diets on cardiovascular risk factors. Circulation. Published online April 8, 2019.
 
Plant-Based Diets Lower Risk for Heart Failure
 
Plant-based diets lower the risk for heart failure, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Researchers compared plant-based, Southern, and three other eating patterns with heart disease incidence rates. Those who followed a plant-based diet had a 41 percent lower risk for heart failure when compared to those with the lowest adherence to a plant-based diet. A Southern-style dietary pattern rich in fried foods and processed meat increased the risk of heart failure by 72 percent, compared with those who ate fewer of the foods associated with that pattern. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds associated with plant-based diets may explain the decreased risk for heart disease.

Plant-Based Diets Improve Quality of Life in Type 2 Diabetes Patients

A plant-based diet improves psychological well-being in type 2 diabetes patients, according to a review published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care. Researchers reviewed 11 controlled trials on dietary interventions for type 2 diabetes and found that plant-based diets improved well-being overall when compared to dietary interventions from various diabetes associations. Participants reported less pain and saw improvements in depression, weight, quality of life, cholesterol and HbA1c levels, and other health outcomes. Adherence was higher among the plant-based intervention groups, which also suggested higher acceptability, compared with control groups, demonstrating the potential effectiveness of plant-based diets as a clinical intervention for type 2 diabetes.

Healthful (note: “more plant foods and fewer animal products”) Diet Improves Cancer Survival in Colorectal Cancer Patients

A healthful diet increases cancer survival among those with colorectal cancer, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Researchers compared dietary quality for several dietary approaches, including American Cancer Society guidelines and the DASH diet, with cancer mortality for 2,801 participants before and after cancer diagnoses. More healthful diets received higher scores. Results showed increased survival rates for those who ate more plant foods and fewer animal products. The authors suggest that dietary interventions effectively reduce cancer mortality despite a poor diet before diagnosis.

Poor Diet Linked to Vision Loss Among Elderly 

A poor diet is linked to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss among the elderly, according to a study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology. Researchers compared dietary intake of various foods to changes in retinal AMD lesions over an 18-year period. Those who followed diets high in red and processed meat, fried foods, and high-fat dairy products had a threefold increased incidence rate for late AMD when compared to those who followed healthier diets. These results suggest Western diets high in meat and dairy may be risk factors for AMD.

PLANT-BASED RESOURCES

(for research and debate links on health, environment etc. go here)

Why Plant-Based Nutrition?

(or go straight to links below)

My background: BSc in Ecology, MSc in Human ecology, worked in nature conservation, musician, life-coach, vegan for 7 years.

It has never been more urgent to face the destructive practices of humanity and choose either a future of extinctions, conflicts and mass suffering or a future of wisdom, healing and fulfilling the positive human potential, There are many ways of creating a more just, healthy, safe, compassionate, peaceful and environmentally sustainable society. However, not all actions are equally effective. Doing an almost a complete plant-based nutrition or reducing animal input to very low levels would contribute massively to the positive world scenario which most people really want. Animal agriculture in it’s present form and the typical western diet are an ecological, health and moral disaster. See links below for reasons.

According to increasing scientific peer-reviewed evidence including studies on long-lived populations and disease reversal, there is no advantage to consuming animal products over plant-based except in areas where there is no choice logistically. Plant-based diet, if done in a balanced way, appears to be the wisest choice, when considering health, morality and sustainability together. Probably on health grounds alone.

If you are open to the ideas above and want to find out more information or try the plant-based nutrition (personal experience is best!) I have provided some links below. Most importantly you should be aware that vitamins B12 and D3 (at high latitudes because of lack of sun comparatively) are needed as a supplement – easily done and non-vegans can often also show deficiencies. See link below. In fact non-vegans consume supplements added to foods like milk or frequently buy them anyway. Getting a balanced vegan diet is pretty simple once it becomes habit! Enjoy the new knowledge and social activities!

One way to get started is to go to vegan events with cooking etc.

(A note about getting to the truth

Because there are a lot of conflicting infos out there it can be difficult to be objective. Especially with diet. However, peer-reviewed research, although not free from abuse, is probably the nearest we can get to it within science at least. The environmental and dietary scientific evidence is on balance very convincing. There is a lot of disinformation that is often propagated by interests of the powerful meat and dairy industries, including through health authorities (Germany, too!) and individuals who are in denial of the rigorous evidence who use non-scientific arguments. Don’t believe everything you read/hear/see including here and please consider that not all bias is equal in amounts, or levels of harm that it causes, or funding! Also badly informed doctors, wishful thinking, and defensiveness play a role in our decisions and what we choose to believe or not. I have included a few debunking links to media as examples.)

How I became able to perform freely as a guitarist

As a composer, guitarist and singer I used to hate playing solo in front of people for fear of being ridiculed and wanted to smash up my guitar whenever I made mistakes! Despite this, I would often get enthusiastic feedback from my audiences. This went on for a number of years until I realised that something had to change: either I gave up being a musician or worked on feeling free on stage so I could appreciate what I was doing as much or more than my audiences, despite “imperfections”.
In a nutshell: I took a firm decision to become free and 2 weeks later was offered the chance to play with a Bavarian comedian/musician celebrity on state television for whom I had done recording for his CD previously. At first I told him (Willy Astor) that I was busy on that date but after putting the phone down I realised this was an excellent opportunity to achieve my goals. Despite fear I called him back, to confirm that I was actually free, and committed myself.

I forced myself to play much harder solo pieces in front of unofficial audiences as much as I could before the gig where I was to play a simple accompaniment. The concert went really well and all the musicians were likeable and easy-going. I wasn’t nervous and could hardly believe that! This lead on to further gigs at 4 of the most famous venues in Munich and surroundings, including a further TV performance and audiences of between 1500 and 2000. In the middle of all this I had envisioned my final goal of feeling free, playing a challenging solo piece of my own in front of 1000 people, for example in the flamenco style. Just after this and without having mentioned any of the above story to my colleagues, the main guitarist in the band said that I should do some improvisation at the next gig! I knew this was another fantastic opportunity and took it gratefully. It went well I wasn’t nervous!

After this performing solo became a breeze generally speaking but it wasn’t until about 4 years later that I realised I had achieved my goal after having performed 3 fairly challenging solo compositions of my own in front of 1000 people at a church for the funeral of the brother of a girlfriend who tragically died young whilst snowboarding. It was freezing cold and the church and I had to use hand warmers but I was both touched and happy to support the family of the deceased and was completely free in my mind as I performed. This was an unexpected backdrop to my goal but it also taught me yet again that when one focuses on providing value for others, it is perhaps the best way of feeling free as a performer, rather than concentrating on achieving a high standard per se, free from any imperfections!
