chronic diseases you don’t even need to take supplements with a plant-based diet
helpline states that although protein is a very important part of our diet
because it can help build and repair organs bones and muscles there are
certain risks in a diet that has too much protein overconsumption of protein
can lead to weight gain over time this is because excess protein is typically
stored as fat while amino acids are excreted and according to health line
excess protein can lead to constipation diarrhea and even dehydration and as if
that wasn’t bad enough excess amount of protein can even lead to bad breath
particularly if you’re on a low-carb diet this can be caused by ketosis which

eating meat can have a huge impact on the health of our planet and its
inhabitants it’s been reported that animal agriculture is destructive to the
planet so by not eating it you’re also helping the environment which in turn
helps you raising animals for consumption as food requires a lot of
resources this includes food energy land and water
according to PETA animal agriculture is actually responsible for more greenhouse
gases than all the transportation systems in the whole entire world
combined the United Nations also states that in order to combat these effects of
climate change there needs to be a massive shift in our diets and that more
people need to start eating vegan diets it takes a huge amount of water to grow
crops to use as food for animals and give them water to drink
according to PETA one cow can drink a whopping 50 gallons every single day and
did you know that it takes up to 683 gallons of water to produce one single
gallon of milk this means that it takes over 2,400 gallons of water to create
one single pound of beef tofu on the other hand can be produced with only 244
gallons of water PETA states that by switching to a vegan
diet one single person can save up to 219 thousand gallons of water every
