Does the idea of quitting meat sound crazy to you? Maybe it won’t sound so crazy after reading this article. According to the World Health Organization, processed and unprocessed meats increase risk of cancer, especially colorectal cancer.
Well, that’s not the only reason you should stop eating meat. Here are 8 amazing things that will happen when you quit meat.
You may live longer
People who eat red and processed meat live shorter. According to this study, vegetarians and folks who eat low amounts of meat live longer that those who eat meat regularly.
In fact, eating red meat daily increases risk of death by 13 percent.
Lower risk of cancer
Regular consumption of meat causes inflammation which consequently increases risk of cancer. And studies show that meat releases chemicals that alter DNA and make us prone to cancer when it’s cooked or smoked.
Better heart health
As I mentioned above, meat causes inflammation – this increases risk of heart disease. Plus, the compound L-carnitine, found in meat is known to clog arteries. This is risky since heart problems are mostly caused by clogged arteries.
Lower risk of type 2 diabetes
Processed meats have high amounts of nitrates, nitrites, and sodium, all which promote insulin resistance. As you may know, insulin resistance leads to diabetes.
According to this study, vegetarians and vegans have lower risk of diabetes compared to meat-eaters.
Arthritis symptoms will reduce
You probably know that diet affects arthritis pain and symptoms. Well, one study found that arthritis patients experienced less pain when they switched to a low-fat vegan diet.
Your acne will disappear
Did you know that vitamin B12, which is found in meat, can cause acne? In fact, meat-eaters have a higher rate of acne compared to vegetarians.
Regulate blood pressure
Research has linked red meat to high blood pressure. This is due to trimethylamine-N-oxide, a compound that has been proven to raise blood pressure. Various studies show that vegetarians have lower blood pressure.
