Yummy Plants: a vegan lifestyle website and community. We can help you start a vegan diet!
Harvard University’s School of Public Health has created its own “Healthy Eating Plate.” The Harvard plate supports more plant-based calcium foods such as dark leafy greens (especially kale) and beans instead of relying primarily on dairy products. The Harvard plate also promotes the consumption of whole grains, plant-based fats, and vegetables. We’re glad to see support from Harvard for plant-based sources of calcium!
For those with type-2 diabetes, a vegan diet can be a life saver. A medical study conducted in 2006 by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), George Washington University, and the University of Toronto demonstrated that a low-fat vegan diet is more effective than the standard diabetes diet for those with type-2 diabetes and may be more effective than some types of drug therapy.
