The benefits of plant-based nutrition are endless – The Research
Plant-based nutrition is undeniably on the rise. Education and a better understanding of nutrition is changing the way consumers think of traditional foods, leading consumers to seek the benefits of embracing a plant-based lifestyle. Individuals' needs are changing rapidly, lead by a shift toward alternate, clean protein sources. The traditional dominance of whey and collagen protein is now challenged by the surging interest and demand for plant-based nutrition. In addition to sourcing plant-based options for optimal health, 2 in 3 Australians* are reported as having a dairy intolerance. *Source: Canstar Blue
"A plant-based diet is the only diet ever scientifically proven to reverse Heart Disease, the number 1 killer in the western world. It’s also effective in preventing and arresting other leading killers like Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cancer, Stroke and Alzheimer's. The higher the animal protein from dairy sources, the greater the risk of prostate cancer. “

Switching to a diet based on whole grains, fruits and vegetables also has significant positive benefits for the environment. A plant-based diet reduces water and land use driven by cattle, lowers pollution, slows deforestation and reduces destruction of topsoil. In fact, researchers from the University of Oxford have found that a vegan diet reduces an individuals carbon footprint by 73%. A vegan diet is the single biggest measure that can be taken to reduce environmental pollution.
