Before we consider why eating raw vegan is a better option we must first consider why eating vegetarian is better. According to the Harvard Medical School there are many benefits of being a vegetarian. You can read about these benefits here at the Harvard Medical School website. Below I’ve copied a few snippets of what the Harvard Medical School says on their website.

Heart disease. There’s some evidence that vegetarians have a lower risk for cardiac events (such as a heart attack) and death from cardiac causes.

Cancer. Hundreds of studies suggest that eating lots of fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of developing certain cancers, and there’s evidence that vegetarians have a lower incidence of cancer than non-vegetarians do.

Type 2 diabetes. Research suggests that a predominantly plant-based diet can reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes.

Typically people become vegetarian for one of three reasons:

  1. It is better for their health as pointed out by the Harvard Medical School.
  2. It is better for the environment as explained by The Washington Post and numerous other articles.
  3. It is ethically a better choice as explained by PETA.

The benefits of being a vegan include all of the above plus more. According to The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted we should avoid all animal proteins including those that are found in dairy products.

In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.”

The China Study is not a diet book. Dr. Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging.

Being a raw vegan takes things a step further by adding creativity to your foods. It can be a challenge to be a raw vegan and our classes show you how to make it fun, interesting and delicious.
