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.

Experts Recommend Dietary Guidelines Exclude Red and Processed Meat

Experts from Harvard University recommend that dietary guidelines exclude red and processed meat in favor of plant-based foods for the benefit of human health and the environment, according to a publication from the American Diabetes Association. The authors examined the methodologies behind recent dietary recommendations from the Nutritional Recommendations (NutriRECS) consortium, which called for no reductions in red and processed meat intake, and found several limitations, inadequacies, and misinterpretations of data. Researchers reassessed the health impacts of these foods with more appropriate rubrics and found close associations between red and processed meat consumption and diabetes and increased mortality. Results also showed replacing red meat with plant-based protein sources improved cholesterol levels and other health outcomes. The authors suggest that dietary guidelines that emphasize vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and legumes and limit red and processed meat best promote human and environmental health.

Seventh-Day Adventists Have Lower Risk of Cancer and Death

Seventh-Day Adventists, who often follow a plant-based diet, have a lower risk of cancer and death from any cause, according to research published in the journal Cancer. Researchers compared all-cause mortality and cancer incidence rates from Adventist Health Study 2 (AHS-2) participants and the general U.S. population documented in census data. Early death and cancer incidence rates were lower in the AHS-2 population by 33 and 30 percent, respectively, when compared to those in the general population. Early death and cancer incidence rates were lower among black AHS-2 participants by 36 and 22 percent, respectively, compared with blacks in the census data. The authors attribute lower cancer risk, increased quality of life in later years, and benefits to other health outcomes in the AHS-2 group to lifestyle habits, including nonsmoking, exercise, and reduced consumption of meat and suggest these results may transfer to the general U.S. population by adopting similar habits.

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.

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.

ASTHMA

Plant-Based Diets Help Prevent Asthma

Plant-based diets help prevent and treat asthma, according to a review published in Nutrition in Clinical Care. Researchers from the Physicians Committee examined the evidence related to asthma and dietary factors among adults and children. The prevalence of asthma rose over the years as high-fat, Westernized diets increased in popularity. Diets that emphasize fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes and minimize saturated fat reduce the risk for asthma and may improve asthma control. The authors note the positive effects from consuming plant-based diets rich in antioxidants and fiber on factors including inflammation, oxidation, and gut microbiota as possible mechanisms. Dairy consumption was found to increase the risk for asthma and to worsen symptoms in asthma patients. Additional dietary interventions would further highlight the role of nutrition in prevention and treatment.

Abstract: The food that we consume has a large impact on our environment. The impact varies
significantly between different diets. The aim of this systematic review is to address the question:
Which diet has the least environmental impact on our planet? A comparison of a vegan, vegetarian
and omnivorous diets. This systematic review is based on 16 studies and 18 reviews. The included
studies were selected by focusing directly on environmental impacts of human diets. Four electronic
bibliographic databases, PubMed, Medline, Scopus and Web of Science were used to conduct a
systematic literature search based on fixed inclusion and exclusion criteria. The durations of the
studies ranged from 7 days to 27 years. Most were carried out in the US or Europe. Results from
our review suggest that the vegan diet is the optimal diet for the environment because, out of
all the compared diets, its production results in the lowest level of GHG emissions. Additionally,
the reviewed studies indicate the possibility of achieving the same environmental impact as that
of the vegan diet, without excluding the meat and dairy food groups, but rather, by reducing
them substantially.

“While most wild birds have only a mild form of the H5N1 strain, once domesticated birds such as chickens or turkeys are infected, H5N1 can potentially become much more deadly because the birds are often in close contact. H5N1 is a large threat in Asia with infected poultry due to low hygiene conditions and close quarters. Although it is easy for humans to contract the infection from birds, human-to-human transmission is more difficult without prolonged contact. However, public health officials are concerned that strains of avian flu may mutate to become easily transmissible between humans.[18”

Soy Products Lower Risk for Heart Disease

Isoflavones found in tofu and other soy products lower the risk for coronary heart disease, according to research published in Circulation. Researchers at Harvard analyzed diet records from the Nurses’ Health Study I and II for participants free of heart disease and tracked nonfatal myocardial infarction and mortality from heart disease. Higher intakes of tofu were associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease by up to 18%, compared with lower intakes of tofu. These results were more pronounced in premenopausal women. Isoflavones may reduce the risk by binding to estrogen receptors to improve endothelial function and improve the microbiome. The authors conclude that soy products may be an effective dietary approach to coronary heart disease prevention.

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.

Impact of genetic selection for high yields of milk

“Dairy cows may continue to be economically productive for many lactation cycles. In theory a longevity of 10 lactations is possible. The chances of problems arising which may lead to a cow being culled are high, however; the average herd life of US Holstein is today fewer than 3 lactations. This requires more herd replacements to be reared or purchased. Over 90% of all cows are slaughtered for 4 main reasons:

  • Infertility – failure to conceive and reduced milk production.
Cows are at their most fertile between 60 and 80 days after calving. Cows remaining “open” (not with calf) after this period become increasingly difficult to breed, which may be due to poor health. Failure to expel the afterbirth from a previous pregnancy, luteal cysts, or metritis, an infection of the uterus, are common causes of infertility.
Mastitis is recognized by a reddening and swelling of the infected quarter of the udder and the presence of whitish clots or pus in the milk. Treatment is possible with long-acting antibiotics but milk from such cows is not marketable until drug residues have left the cow’s system, also called withdrawal period.
  • Lameness – persistent foot infection or leg problems causing infertility and loss of production.
High feed levels of highly digestible carbohydrate cause acidic conditions in the cow’s rumen. This leads to laminitis and subsequent lameness, leaving the cow vulnerable to other foot infections and problems which may be exacerbated by standing in faeces or water soaked areas.
  • Production – some animals fail to produce economic levels of milk to justify their feed costs.
Production below 12 to 15 L of milk per day is not economically viable.[citation needed]

Cow longevity is strongly correlated with production levels.[25] Lower production cows live longer than high production cows, but may be less profitable. Cows no longer wanted for milk production are sent to slaughter. Their meat is of relatively low value and is generally used for processed meat. Another factor affecting milk production is the stress the cow is faced with.
