Vegan Diet Reduces Risk of Arthritis, Heart Attack, Stroke
Researchers from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm (Sweden's Caroline Institute) have published a study in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy showing that eating a vegan and gluten-free may reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in rheumatoid arthritis patients, as well as reducing the severity of the disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is considered a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

5 Reasons You SHOULDN'T Go Vegan

There are better things to eat than meat.
The researchers studied 66 adults with rheumatoid arthritis, averaging 50 years of age. Thirty-eight of the adults were placed on a vegan, gluten-free diet in which carbohydrates provided 60 percent of daily calories, fat provided 30 percent, and protein provided 10 percent.

A vegan diet is one free of any animal products -- including flesh, dairy, and eggs. In addition to omitting animal products, the study participants also avoided gluten, a toxic protein [the plant uses to avoid being eaten] found in wheat, barley, oats, and rye.

Instead, participants in the vegan and gluten-free group began with a one-day diet of berry juice and broth. Starting on the second day, they were fed gluten-free grains such as buckwheat, corn, millet, and rice.

In addition, they ate ample quantities of nuts, sunflower seeds, vegetables, and fruits. Calcium was provided with a daily serving of sesame milk. More

Vegans Know How to Party
People choose to be vegan for their health, for our environmental, or for ethical reasons. For example, some feel that it promotes the meat industry to buy or eat eggs and dairy products. Once dairy cows and egg-laying chickens are too old to be productive, they are often slaughtered and sold as meat. And since male calves do not produce milk, they are usually tortured, raised as "veal" or other products. Some humans avoid these items because of conditions associated with their production. Many vegans choose this lifestyle to promote a humane and caring world. They know that they are not perfect, but they believe they have a responsibility to try to do their best, while not being judgmental of others. More
