EFECTS OF PLANT-BASED FOODS ON CHRONIC DISEASES: G. Crafton, DPD Student and M. Anderson, PhD, RD, LDN
Plant-based foods such as nuts, fruits and vegetables, certain vegetable oils, and whole grains are commonly used in diets around the world. These foods and diets seem to have a strong correlation with positive effects on chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, diabetes, and obesity. The purpose of this review was to discuss the effects of plant-based foods on certain chronic diseases. These chronic diseases continue to be leading causes of death among Americans and worldwide and it seems there is room for change in eating habits. Consuming foods that are primarily plant based appears to be exceptionally more beneficial at preventing chronic diseases such as CVD, cancer, obesity, and diabetes than other diets. Additionally, adhering to a diet primarily composed of plant based foods and increasing the amount of unsaturated fats and omega-3s has been shown to positively impact the health of many individuals.
