WHAT IS “PLANT BASED”?
A plant based diet is a diet consisting mostly or entirely of foods derived from plants, including vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits, and with few or no animal products.
The use of the phrase plant-based has changed over time. Examples can be found of the phrase “plant-based diet” being used to refer to different diets. Vegan diets, which contain no food from animal sources, to vegetarian diets which include eggs and dairy but no meat. Also, to diets with varying amounts of animal-based foods, such as semi-vegetarian diets which contain small amounts of meat.
Plant-based diets provide well-established physical and environmental health benefits.
These benefits stem in part from the degree of restriction of animal-derived foods.
Plant-based diets typically reduce the risk of developing numerous chronic diseases over the lifespan. Also, they require fewer natural resources for production compared to meat-containing diets
Adopting more plant-based diets for ourselves could reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the food system by more than half, according to the Nature study.
