Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Got High Cholesterol? Go Vegan!

According to a study published this month in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition people who eat plant-based diets have lower cholesterol levels than those who eat animal products. Researchers examined data and blood samples from 1,694 participants from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition-Oxford (EPIC) study and concluded that those who ate a vegan diet consumed the most fiber, the least total fat and saturated fat, and had the healthiest body weight and cholesterol levels, of all the diet groups (including vegetarians).

It makes sense that when we replace animal products --which contain cholesterol-- with plant-based foods --which don’t contain cholesterol-- our cholesterol levels lower to a healthy level promoting heart health. Indeed, a vegan diet is God’s ideal for us.
