Going Vegan – Benefits of Adopting a Vegan Lifestyle

Veganism is a diet that gained a lot of popularity in recent years, but it’s not really a new concept. Opting to consume only plant-based ingredients is a healthy choice, not to mention the environmental benefits of it all. Also, it’s crazy delicious, especially when the right combination of ingredients are used together. Vegan dishes are underrated, both in terms of taste and health benefits, and commonly mis-conceptualised as just eating salads and vegetables.

Veganism is said to have a positive effect in helping to combat a lot of diseases like cancer, obesity, arthritis and several heart diseases.

Let’s take an in-depth look into the short-term and long-term benefits of adopting a vegan diet.


Veganism is a popular way of life amongst a lot of people right now, so much so that some countries, like the UK, even have an entire month dedicated to promoting a vegan lifestyle – Veganuary.

Health benefits of eating vegan food:

Environmental benefits of eating vegan food:

  • Veganism reduces deforestation, overfishing and pollution caused by meat and fish industries which limit the overall capacity of the Earth to produce food.
  • Veganism promotes water conservation as it takes 100 to 200 times more water to raise a pound of beef than it does to raise a pound of plant foods.
  • Using land to raise a diversity of plants (instead of animals) nourishes the soil and leads to long-term resilience.
  • Plant-based proteins can be raised with 8 times less energy costs than meat-based proteins.
  • Plants clean the air of CO2 through photosynthesis.
