WATCH: What Will Happen If We Stop Eating Meat?

We have listed down things that may happen to you if we stop eating meat.

It is proven that if a meat-free diet is done correctly, it will offer a lot of health benefits.

Anthropologist Katherine Milthon of University of California, Berkeley explained this, “It is difficult to comment on ‘the best diet’ for modern humans because there have been and are so many different yet successful diets in our species because some hunter-gatherer societies obtained most of their dietary energy from wild animal fat and protein does not imply that this is the ideal diet for modern humans, nor does it imply that modern humans have genetic adaptations to such diets.”

American Dietetic Association also said that correct and planned vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate and it provides prevention and treatment to certain diseases.

These are some of the benefits we can get if we stop eating meat.

1. You’ll help protect the environment. Animal cruelty is one of the main issues facing the world. This is happening because of meat production. This ethical issue should not be ignored. With the occupation of large farm lots and factory farms, our environment faces destruction. Providing our food supply is one of the main cause of deforestation. Water issue is another major problem of these meat-producers as their waste contributes to water pollution.

2. Reducing your chances of getting type 2 diabetes. Based on studies, the risk of type 2 diabetes in omnivores are doubled compared with vegans. It is also discovered that eating meat at least once a week in 17-year period can give you a 75% chance of having this type of disease.

3. You will get the right type and the right amount of protein we consume protein from meat. However, overconsumption of it has risks as well. Excess protein is turned into fats. This contributes to weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, inflammation and cancer.

According to Michelle McMacken, MD, a board-certified internal medicine physician and an assistant professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine:

“The protein found in whole plant foods protects us from many chronic diseases. There is no need to track protein intake or use protein supplements with plant-based diets; if you are meeting your daily calorie needs, you will get plenty of protein. The longest-lived people on Earth, those living in the “Blue Zones,” get about 10% of their calories from protein, compared with the U.S. average of 15-20%.”

4. You’ll be living a more compassionate lifestyle. By not eating meat, you are helping to stop animals from having horrific experiences.

5. You’ll reduce inflammation in your body. Eating meat can increase the chance of having elevated levels of inflammation in your body. Chronic inflammation is connected to atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. On the other hand, plant-based foods are naturally anti-inflammatory.

6. You will lower your blood cholesterol. Meat is a factor on raising our blood cholesterol. On the other hand, plant-based diets makes our cholesterol level drops significantly.

Dr. Michelle McMacken said, “Whole-food, plant-based diets reduce blood cholesterol because they tend to be very low in saturated fat and they contain zero cholesterol. Moreover, plant-based diets are high in fibre, which further reduces blood cholesterol levels. Soy has also been shown to play a role in lowering cholesterol, for those who choose to include it.”

7. You’ll give your gut a change. Our guts is where trillions of microorganisms are living. Plant foods help on shaping a healthy intestinal microbiome. Choline and carnitine, which are found in meat, dairy and poultry products, make a toxic product call TMAO that leads to worsening cholesterol plaques in our blood vessels. This causes heart attack and stroke.

8. You’ll live longer by fasting. Fasting repairs our cells. It regenerates stem cells, kill cancer cells and prolongs our life. Eating meat gives different chemicals that is harmful to our health.

9. You’ll change how your genes work. Studies show that plant-based diet lengthen our telomeres that makes our DNA healthy. This makes our aging slower and reduce the chance or contracting an age-related disease.
