What Happens To Your Body When You Stop Eating Meat, According To Doctors

I love my Google News Aggregator. I have never even heard of Bustle. It turns out to be a new more modern Women's magazine (hmm. i wonder if Modern Woman and Redbook still exist?)

anyway when I read the headline I was worried that it was going to be all gloom and doom. It's not!

“Studies have shown that people who focus on increasing their intake of plant-based foods show lower risks of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and even some forms of cancer," Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Nutrition at Penn State and Fellow of the American Heart Association, tells Bustle. A study of over 12,000 middle-aged Americans published in the Journal of the American Heart Association in 2019 found that cutting out meat entirely was linked to a much lower risk for cardiovascular disease and heart disease-related deaths.​
