Veg Diet Beneficial for People with CKD

According to a new study, eating a vegetarian diet lowers kidney disease patients' levels of potentially toxic phosphorus in the blood and urine. This study examined the effects of vegetarian and meat-based diets on phosphorous levels in nine patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and found that a grain-based diet has a lower phosphate-to-protein ratio and much of the phosphate is in the form of phytate, which is not absorbed in humans.

A plant-based diet seems to be the most beneficial diet for our bodies, which we are called to take care of. A meat-based diet brings misery to us and to all of God’s Creation.
