Vegetarian diets are quite popular for various reasons especially for the health benefits such as decreased risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. A vegetarian diet requires planning but it can work for people of all ages and the majority of health conditions. The key to this diet is to pay attention to your nutritional needs. Vegetarians vary on what they eat; it is not a one size fits all kind of diet. Our medical team acknowledges that it’s hard to follow a strictly plant based diet but agree that an anti-inflammatory diet which is plant based is absolutely ideal for health.
