Another study, this one a big larger than most, confirms that a plant-based diet is your best bet for heart health: "A multiyear study involving more than 100,000 participants provides added support that eating lots of fruit and vegetables is good for the heart. The report supports the American Heart Association's recommendations to consume at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day, according to the researchers, led by Dr. Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health. For cancer, the report said, 'The protective effect of fruit and vegetable intake may have been overstated.'" Maybe - or maybe it was just misstated: The protective effect vis-a-vis cancer would probably be that of not eating so much toxic meat that gives you cancer. Just a theory, of course.
