Is a vegan or plant-based diet really healthy? More people worldwide are adopting a vegan or plant-based diet on a daily basis. Let's conduct a fact check on the numerous claims made about the numerous positive changes a vegan diet can bring about.
An important point to make before moving on is that a vegetarian meal plan and a vegan meal plan are not the same things. Animal products such as meat, honey, milk, and dairy products have no place in a vegan diet, which is entirely plant-based.
