If you also ask yourself how to live for many years, here is something that will surprise you about the excellent benefits of a plant-based diet.
Dr Garth Davis cited a study called "The Blue Zones," by National Geographic and Dan Buettner. They looked around the world for people with the longest life expectancy, who would live over 100 years, and the results will surprise you.
The health specialist says that people who maintain a plant-based diet do not have obesity, diabetes, heart diseases and, if they do, the percentage very low.
"The vast majority of their diet is a plant-based diet. They are not vegan or vegetarian, they don't have these names and concepts, that's just what they mainly eat. And if you look at them over time, a traditional Okinawan starts out low and actually loses weight as he gets older, compared to the American who gains weight".
The doctor mentions that these communities that maintain a plant-based diet are called the "Blue Zone."
"Probably, the healthiest of all the blue zones is Loma Linda. They don't drink and they don't smoke; they eat a lot of fruit and vegetables; they walk a lot, and they're very healthy.
The life expectancy of these people who eat healthy food and maintain healthy habits such as exercise have a higher expectation than the average person.
