Vegetarian Diets: a Healthy Alternative

Recently, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, issued a revised statement on vegetarian diets. In this they state that “vegetarian diets may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain health condition, including atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and obesity” (Cullum-Dugan & Pawlak, 2015, p. 801). They further state that a well-balanced vegetarian diet including fortified foods and supplements can meet the dietary needs of people at all stages of life. When it comes to possible deficiencies in a vegetarian diet, they mention that deficiencies are not the main causes of sickness and death in Western societies. However, care should be taken to include vitamin B-12 in vegetarian diets.


So a well-balanced vegetarian diet can be a healthy eating choice!
