Are you choosing vegetarian foods and recipes from time to time? Maybe you’re increasing the proportion of vegetarian dishes in your diet because you’ve heard that it’s beneficial to eat a plant-based diet.
Well, research scientists reporting in the Journal of the American Heart Association, outlined that; “Plant-based diets are dietary patterns that emphasize higher intakes of plant foods and are low in animal foods. Vegetarian diets, a type of plant-based diet, with a focus on restriction of different types of animal foods (meat, poultry, or fish), have been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular risk factors, such as obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and ischemic heart disease.”.
