Vegan Medicine

carrotRecent studies show that people with type 2 diabetes can experience dramatic improvements in their health if they switch to a low fat, vegan diet. Research in Canada and the U.S has been done on two separate groups of patients with diabetes, with about half on the vegan diet, and the other half on the traditional diabetes regimen.

In close to 6 months the results were quite astounding, showing those who ate vegan losing nearly twice as much weight as people on oral medications alone. Not only that, but the people eating vegan were able to ignore other suggested health precautions usually required for stable weight and blood sugar, such as a decrease in carbs and portion size. They could literally eat what they wanted when they wanted so long as it was meat and animal free. Subjects also found a significant reduction in both their cholesterol and blood sugar levels after adopting a vegan diet.

Vegans are typically slimmer than meat and dairy consumers and have much lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, lung cancer and osteoporosis. Many health problems associated with saturated fats and other apparently ‘toxic’ foods can also be eliminated through switching to a more veggie friendly lifestyle. Perhaps this is why many fantastic athletes are vegan, such as 9 time Olympic Gold Medallist Carl Lewis, and and six time Iron Man Triathlon winner Dave Scott.
