Veganism eliminates all animal-based foods, including meat, dairy, eggs, and products derived from them.
This usually results in a diet which is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
Research and health experts suggest that diets loaded with these plant foods may help people live longer.
The same can be said about diets low in red and processed meats.
Moreover, vegan diets tend to pack plenty of fibre, plant protein, and antioxidants.
Diets rich in these nutrients are believed to safeguard against obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease which boosts one’s longevity.
