Are plant-based diets the key to healthy, sustainable and prolonged lives?

Plant-based options:
Consumers can purchase many plant-based foods and/or alternatives, such as plant-based meat and dairy, beans, legumes, oils, nuts, seeds etc. People who have transitioned from regular to vegetarian or vegan diets often purchase meat and dairy substitutes like vegan-friendly beef, pork, bacon, mince, chicken, sausages, cheese, cream and much more. According to data from the Google search engine, the search for “vegan food near me” in 2021 leapt 5,000% with continuous upward trends. Plant-based meats are entirely composed of plants and minerals. Most commonly soybeans, peas, sunflower and coconut oil, wheat, water, zinc and vitamins.

The huge environmental, social and health implications of meat and dairy:

According to the Science Journal, eliminating meat and dairy is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental footprint! If the world was to end meat and dairy consumption, farmland around the globe could be cut by over 75%. For context, that’s as much land as all of China, the United States, Australia and the European Union combined! Not only would that allow for massive reforestation projects and support greener industries but still feed the entire world. Meat and diary contribute to 83% of all farmland globally and make up 60% of all greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural industry.
