People that adhere to a vegan lifestyle and diet believe that it is wrong to eat or use products that either from an animal or animal byproducts. There are different reasoning for this. Some people believe that it is cruel to sacrifice animals for humans to consume or wear. But some companies are making meat substitute products such as the plant based meat. Some people adapt the vegan diet due to its healthy properties. It has even been reported that eating a strict vegan diet can improve or cure certain health conditions.
Due to the fact that the vegan diet contains no animal proteins or by products such as milk and cheese, it is very low in fat and cholesterol. This type of diet is very good for people with conditions such as high blood pressure or coronary artery disease. Studies have shown that this type of diet helps to prevent colon cancer, prostate cancer, reduce high blood pressure, and decreases the chances of being prone to a heart attack or stroke.
There is a lot of controversy as to the healthy qualities of the standard type of American diet. Some scientists believe that a properly planned vegan diet is a great improvement over the standard diet due to the fact that it includes enough fruits and vegetables to either meet or exceeded the intake that is required daily.
