Why A Vegetarian’s Blood Is Healthier


A new study claims that eating only vegetarian food can make one's blood nearly 8 times effective in killing some cells that cause cancer. To put in a nutshell, it could prolong life!

Current estimates suggest that nearly one in every three people have the chances of developing cancer. In the coming 30 years, these numbers may double up!

Though this news could be bad news, there is surely hope if you quit meat and processed foods and eat plant based foods.

In a study that was conducted in the year 2005, researchers claim that the blood of vegans is said to be 8 times healthier compared to non-vegetarians especially when it comes to preventing cancer.

As a part of an experiment, researchers fed the subjects with veg and non-veg for a year. After one year, their blood was sent for testing.

The blood of the vegans seemed to combat cancer more efficiently compared to the rest of the participants. The growth of the cancer cells was slowed down in those who ate plant based foods. Of course, that group participated more in yoga and relaxation techniques.

In fact, after eating plant based foods for nearly 15 days, the body's defenses against cancer seemed to strengthen when the participants also engaged in light exercises.

Researchers gathered blood samples from women suffering from blood cancer. And then they were sent to try vegan diet for a fortnight along with 30 minutes of exercise on a daily basis. When their blood samples were again sent for examination, researchers found out that the growth of cancer cells slowed down significantly.

The final results of this experiment claims that plant based foods can double up the body's power to kill cancer cells. The one and the only benefit of plant based foods is that your blood will never let cancer cells thrive.
