The Anti-Aging Effects Of The Vegan Diet – Health Benefits Of Embracing Veganism
Many people in the world mock those on the vegan diet, but persons such as these should be pitied. Why? Soon enough, they themselves will likely develop some personal health issues and will be seeking a diet to help them regain their health and live longer. And what better way to rescue their health than adopting veganism! Let us see why.
What are the health benefits of the vegan diet?
A plant-based diet has been known for centuries for its anti-again effects. Persons who consume mostly or solely plant-based foods will live longer than meat and dairy eaters. This has been proven. A U.S study based on half-a-million people revealed that eaters of red and processed meats died more frequently prematurely than persons who ate a plant-based diet. The evidence is there folks! Many vegans live to be a ripe old age, and do not develop diseases or illnesses that attack the rest of the population. Yes, anti-ageing is one of the most well-reported health benefits of the vegan diet!
Just look at Anette Larkins, a famous vegan woman who is over 70 years old but looks not a day older than 40! Also Google Mimi Kirk – who is in her mid-seventies but likewise looks much younger. Then there’s Dan McDonald, a vegan raw foodist who is in his mid-forties. His smooth, glowing skin however looks like that of a young boy! Also, look at Portia de Rossi, Alicia Silverstone, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Pfeiffer and Natalie Portman. These stunning beauties have been known to follow the vegan diet, and their flawless skin and glowing faces attest to it! It has been reported that those who adopt veganism have experienced a clearing up of skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Youthful skin is without a doubt a side-effect of the healthy vegan diet!
Reduces risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension
Studies indicate that a regular consumption of animal fats and protein increases a person’s risk of developing chronic disease including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and hypertension. Studies also show that persons who eliminate meat and dairy products from their diet and replace them with plant-based foods, beans, whole-grains and soy will reduce their risk of developing these diseases, and even eliminate or reduce them. For example, it has been proven that men who have early stage prostate cancer can reverse or stop the progression of their cancer if they adopt a vegan diet and eliminate all meat and dairy products. Yes, the healthy vegan diet has been known for decades for its miraculous healing abilities and remarkable health benefits.
The belief in the benefits of anti-aging creams, along with their use, should be met with skepticism. Nearly every brand and type delivers information about the product being “scientifically tested” or “scientifically proven” however, the results of these studies are rarely made available to consumers. This suggests that the legitimacy of these studies and subsequent results are highly questionable.
Aging is a natural process which is accompanied by normal physical, chemical, and biological changes in the body. These changes include facial and body wrinkling of the skin and this process is common to all human beings. To believe so easily that a cream could prevent and/or reduce the process of skin aging all on its own does not fit with how the world really works. If this problem had such a simple solution, individuals (including our ancestors) would likely have perfect complexions free of age-related problems. Similarly, if the solution to anti-aging was so easy for us to attain, there would be no need for hundreds or thousands of products on the commercial market which provide similar claims yet produce products with differing ingredients.
Theoretically, cosmetics promise to alter or “enhance” function, however they do not change any cellular or biochemical reactions or processes within the skin. Secondly, these products and chemicals are unregulated by any governing body, thus allowing potentially dangerous or harmful ingredients to be added with the promise of results. Before blindly accepting that certain chemicals cause anti-aging results, it is necessary to do research to determine the safety of these products.
The vegan diet offers many incredible health benefits which have been proven time and time again. Many persons who have adopted veganism refuse to give it up, because the health benefits are simply too precious to surrender!
