Medical Plant Based (Vegan) Diet

  1. Jun 14, 2013 #1
    Hello,



    I wanted to see how many members of this forum are on a plant based (vegan) diet?



    What are your thoughts on the extreme changes that will occur, within the medical field, and on pharmaceutical manufacturing, when an increasing number of people begin eating alkalizing diets, rather than acidic diets?

    What research can you cite about long term trends in diet change to support your basic assumption: there will be a measurable dietary shift (in the US I presume)? Please give us something to go on - I found nothing in reputable journals, but maybe my search was misdirected.

    We've had polls like this before, a huge percentage of members are meat eaters.

    Here is a recent Gallup poll for the US. Vegetarianism has actually declined a bit.
