A large body of scientific literature has shown that adherence to plant-based dietary patterns is correlated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Plant-based diets are dietary patterns that include high consumption of plant-based foods such as vegetables, whole grains, fruits, legumes, seeds, and nuts and strongly reduce the consumption of most animal products. Meat and dairy products are fueling the climate crisis, while plant-based diets help protect the environment.
The different types of plant-based diets are:
- Vegetarian and vegan;
- Whole food plant-based.
This Special Issue of IJERPH will evaluate possible correlations between health and plant-based diets. The Special Issue will also study the effects of plant-based diets on the intake of certain nutrients (e.g., iron, zinc, PUFA, vitamin D) and their correlation with metabolic and cardiovascular diseases.
