“Better adherence to plant-based dietary patterns, especially those emphasizing healthy plant-based foods, is beneficial for lowering the risks of major chronic conditions, including T2D [type 2 diabetes], CVD [cardiovascular disease], cancer, as well as premature deaths.”

Here’s the study.

Also, there’s an omnivore vs plant-based study circling, which some folks are sharing as evidence of a plant-based diet being more likely to lead to bone fractures and shitty bone density. What they forget to mention is this part of the study:

“The differences [vegan vs omnivore] were attenuated in the subgroup reporting regular resistance training. Altogether, these results suggest that the higher fracture risk associated with a vegan diet as compared with omnivores can be mitigated by calcium-vitamin D supplements and possibly regular resistance training.”
