New Study Finds That Swapping Meat For Vegan Protein Leads To A Longer Life

by | July 22, 2020

A new study has found that consuming plant-based proteins instead of animal products can lead to a longer life span.

The observational health study — which took place over 16 years and involved 416,104 participants — found that “red and processed meat consumption have been consistently associated with increased premature death.”

“High-Quality Plant Sources”

“Plant protein intake was significantly inversely associated with age-adjusted mortality from all causes in both men and women,” reported the authors of the study.

“Consistent with our findings, a recent meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials has shown that substitution of red meat with protein from high-quality plant sources, including legumes, soy, nuts, and other foods, was associated with benefits on lipid profiles, including favorable reductions in blood total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.”

The study revealed that the most significant benefits can be gained by swapping red meat and egg for plant proteins.

The authors suggest that “plant protein derived from bread, cereal, and pasta,” is most preferable as a substitution for animal products.
