2. As we get older, cholesterol becomes one of our primary health concerns. There’s good cholesterol, HDL, and bad cholesterol, LDL. High levels of LDL can put you at risk of heart disease and stroke. So where do we get this bad cholesterol from? Well, LDL is saturated fat that’s actually found in the meats that we consume.
Therefore, meat is a driving force is high levels of cholesterol. Going on a green diet can significantly decrease your risk of heart disease. Studies have shown that cutting out meat from your diet can lower your cholesterol levels by as much as 33%.
This decrease is significant, almost equivalent to the effects induced by medications… except its through a natural means with a significant amount of positive side effects (something that’s not always guaranteed with medication).
