Switching from animal proteins to plant proteins can help you to live longer by significantly reducing your risk of developing chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. If you want to live longer, then you should strongly consider switching out at least three percent of your animal protein intake for plant protein like beans, nuts, soy, and lentils.
Welcome to Talking Plant Protein. I am Nicole Astra and this is Industry News.
According to Harvard Medical School, getting three percent more total calories from plant protein can reduce your risk of premature death by about five percent. That’s right, if you eat more plant-based proteins, there’s a good chance that you might actually live longer. This information came from a series of multi-decade studies about plant protein intake from over seven hundred thousand people.
According to Dr. Frank Hu, chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, when individuals eat more plant protein, rather than animal, there is a significant improvement in cardiovascular risk factors. Plant-based proteins contain considerably more healthy fats, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants. This contributes to their longevity and anti-disease benefits.
