Eating a plant-based diet is good for heart health There are two different types of plant-based diets, vegetarian and vegan. Vegetarian diets focus on not eating different types of animal foods, such as meat, poultry, and/or fish. While vegan diets restrict eating any form of meat or animal products, which includes foods like dairy and eggs. Eating a plant-based diet has been linked to lowering the risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. In a recent study, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers examined whether eating a plant-based diet is associated with lowering the risk of developing heart disease, the potential of dying from heart disease, and other types of disease mortality in the U.S. The researchers used data collected from over 10,000 men and women between the ages of 45-64, who were followed from 1987 to 2016. The participants were required to keep a food journal and record how many times they consumed food and beverages.
