Plant-Based Diets on the Rise

Plant-based diets have been on the news lately thanks to the exposure given by movies, documentaries and celebrities such as Ellen, Dr. Oz and even Bill Clinton. The American Dietetic Association states that vegan diets are "healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases." Many surveys show that vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise. However, it seems that health concerns are the main reason why people who try plant-based diets go back to meat-eating. Fortunately, the growing evidence of the benefits of plant-based diets in preventing and reversing many chronic diseases is helping people put their concerns aside.

Christians are called to take care of their bodies for they are temples of the Holy Spirit. However, a diet laden with animal products increases the risk of many chronic diseases and brings much misery and pain not only to us but to all Creation. Transition to a plant-based diet on the other hand helps bring healing and reconciliation to God’s Creation.
