Food for thought … and health
Making a case for plant-based nutrition
John D. Grant MD FRCPC
Family physicians and their patients know that our Canadian health care system is struggling. Cancers, lifestyle diseases—obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis—and all their complicating health issues are filling clinics, hospitals, and chronic care facilities. Expensive medicines and interventions are being devised and used to treat and ameliorate these problems in a reactive rather than proactive way—adding to the expense and wait-time spiral. How much does angioplasty or cardiac bypass surgery cost? Chemotherapy? Stomach stapling? How many of your patients are taking statins? Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors? Calcium channel blockers or β-blockers? Oral hypoglycemics?
There is an easier, less expensive route to better health. Epidemiologic research has demonstrated solid evidence linking the prototypical North American diet—high in refined sugar, animal fat, and animal protein—to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, cholelithiasis, Alzheimer disease, and the development of some cancers. An opposite association occurs with vegetarian and vegan diets. This strongly suggests that acceptance and promotion of plant-based nutrition can substantially reduce many of our current health care concerns and costs. Simply put, a whole plant–based diet is healthier.
Over the past 30 to 40 years, as traditionally low-risk Asian, Middle Eastern, and African countries abandoned their mainly plant-source diets and adopted our Western refined sugar and animal-based nutrition, these cultures have experienced rapidly rising rates of lifestyle diseases.
Obesity is now an epidemic world-wide. Pediatric obesity, with its increased risks of hypertension (3 times higher), abnormal lipid profiles, and type 2 diabetes, often tracks through to adulthood as gross obesity, coronary artery disease, and early mortality.
The average Canadian consumes 23.5 kg of poultry, 38.8 kg of red meat, 16.8 dozen eggs, and 8.6 kg of fish per year. In addition to lifestyle diseases, this ongoing degree of meat consumption might also be associated with increased risk of renal, colorectal, and breast cancers; Alzheimer disease; and age-related macular degeneration.
