Disease Prevention | Vegan Restaurant Finder

Vegan diets help diseases like heart disease and diabetes. This is for two primary reasons, including a reduction in saturated fats as well as nutrient dense food choices. Learn how going vegan can help improve and/or prevent these conditions.

According to the American Heart Association, high cholesterol and a high intake of saturated fats are both risk factors for developing heart disease. Lowering these numbers is often the first step in having a healthier heart. Becoming a vegan naturally cuts out many foods that are high in saturated fats, since most of these foods come from dairy and meat products. When it comes to diabetes, the American Diabetes Association states that people who are overweight are at a higher risk of developing the disease. Since most people lose some weight when switching to a vegan diet, the risk of diabetes goes down as well.

It is also important to treat your body from the inside out. Foods that are high in antioxidants and other nutrients help protect you from many chronic diseases. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains contain these necessary nutrients and antioxidants. As long as you maintain a balanced vegan diet, you will consume more natural foods that help make your body stronger.


A vegan diet will help prevent many diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. By lowering saturated fats and increasing nutrients and antioxidants, you are providing your body with the tools needed to fight off disease. Because of this, many people benefit from switching to a vegan diet.
