Vegans & Hypertension

Vegans & Cancer

According to a 2016 study in the Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, vegans have a 15% lower incidence of all types of cancer, 34% lower risk of female-specific cancer and 22% lower risk of colorectal cancer.

In a study that included 56,000 vegan participants, vegans had significantly lower levels of cancer when compared to non-vegans. The reasons for the beneficial effects of veganism on cancer lie mainly on the lower intake of total and saturated fats in a vegan diet. Reduced cancer risk is also associated with vegans' large consumption of foods known to decrease cancer risk, such as soybean, legumes, nuts and vegetable oils. Additionally, vegans can absorb more carotenoids, disease-fighting pigment, and polyphenols, that help prevent degenerative diseases like cancer.

Vegans & All-Cause Mortality

According to a 2013 study published by Journal of the American Medical Association, vegans have a 15% lower risk of all-cause mortality compared to meat eaters.

The Adventist Health Study 2 (AHS-2) is a large North American prospective cohort study. A total of 96 469 Seventh-day Adventist men and women recruited between 2002 and 2007, from which an analytic sample of 73 308 participants remained after exclusions. The authors of the paper conducted a mortality analysis by Cox proportional hazards regression, controlling for important demographic and lifestyle confounders. Diet was assessed at baseline by a quantitative food frequency questionnaire. The findings of the present study are similar to those of prior North American Adventist cohorts, demonstrating a consistent association over several decades and replicating prior results in a population with greater geographic and ethnic diversity.
