Plant-Based Diet is Detoxifying

A new study conducted in Korea at a Buddhist Temple has generated very positive results. The study titled “Influence of a five-day vegetarian diet on urinary levels of antibiotics and phthalate metabolites: A pilot study with ‘Temple Stay’ participants”, comprised twenty five study participants, who ate vegetarian food during their stay. They were asked before entering the temple about their dietary habits, and urine samples were taken which indicated high levels of antibiotics and phthalates. The researchers found antibiotic and phthalate urinary levels dropped very much after the study participants completed their vegetarian retreat, which might indicate that a plant-based diet has fewer antibiotics but also that it might help in the elimination of toxins in our bodies.

This is fantastic news! Maybe these new findings will help more people to finally make the decision to transition to a plant-based diet. Although the results of this study are certainly encouraging, they should not surprise us. A plant-based diet was given to us by God as the ideal diet for all Creation.
