The reason so many people are going vegan? Research shows that health is now the second biggest driver.
More and more people are ditching animal products in order to combat specific health problems. Others report general improvements in energy and vitality, and exclaim that they’ve ‘never felt better’. Stories of successful vegan athletes and sports stars are on the increase, and plant-based living is regularly profiled in health and wellness publications. The British Dietetic Association even confirms: ‘well-planned vegan diets can support healthy living in people of all ages’.

“All my blood tests are good, and my vital signs are good, and I feel good, and I also have, believe it or not, more energy.” – Bill Clinton (became vegan after emergency heart surgery).
