Reducing dietary fat intake represents a conceptually new approach to further improve outcome of patients with breast cancer.

Study shows the estimated risk of death at any time increased 1.4-fold for each 1,000 g in monthly fat intake

Study shows that for every gram increase in estimated calorie-adjusted daily fat intake there was a 0.09 mm increase in tumor diameter

UK study shows meat diet during pregnancy leads to adult blood pressure for the offspring

Vegetarian diets lead to significantly lower cholesterol levels

Yale study finds strong positive correlation between female fracture rates and dietary protein consumption.

Harvard study indicates that high protein intake (especially animal proteins) may accelerate renal function decline in women with mild renal insufficiency

Men who heavily consume milk, cheese, eggs and meat are 3.6 times more at risk of developing prostrate cancer

Study shows that increase in protein intake significantly increased urinary calcium and net renal acid excretion, causing the mean net calcium balance to become negative.

Study indicates positive correlation between excess protein intake and leeching of calcium from the bones

Study shows loss of bone mass, almost double for non-vegetarian women compared to vegetarian women over a 39 year period

Harvard study indicates that high protein intake (especially animal proteins) may accelerate renal function decline in women with mild renal insufficiency

Study indicates healthy vegetarians at substantially lower risk than healthy non-vegetarians for diabetes

Study shows vegetarians have lower blood pressure and significantly lower hypertension risk that non-vegetarians.

Study reports 46% higher mean cholesterol levels in non-vegetarians relative to vegetarians. LDL (or bad cholesterol) levels were 61% higher, while HDL (good cholesterol) levels were only 16% higher

Crossover study shows significantly lower serum phosphorous and FGF23 levels within 1 week of change to a vegetarian diet. Study concludes the importance of dietary counselling to include the source of protein from which phosphate derives, as compared to only the quantity of phophate.

Incorporating whole-grain (plant based) foods into the diet, can improve insulin sensitivity

Vegetarian diet produces very significant advantages for the prevention & treatment of diabetes and its complications

German study shows that vegetables may produce cancer chemopreventive effects without causing significant levels of toxicity

Study shows that a change to a vegetarian diet leads to a 5-6mmHg fall in systolic blood pressure, within 6 weeks

Reduced cancer risk and lack of toxicity associated with high intake of fruits and vegetables suggest that specific concentrations of antioxidant agents from these dietary sources may produce cancer chemopreventive effects without causing significant levels of toxicity'

Study shows that diabetes patients shifting to a vegan diet and exercise program report significant drops in glucose levels, cholesterol, weight, medication and SPDN pain.

Ornish study shows a 37% reduction in LDL levels and a 4.5% improvement in artery blockages within one year of converting to a vegetarian diet
