Vegan Nutrition

The NHS (National Health Service, UK) gives guidelines on vegan diets, saying: “With good planning and an understanding of what makes up a healthy, balanced vegan diet, you can get all the nutrients your body needs”.  (See: link).

The American Dietetic Association advises that: “Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases”.  (See: link).

The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – the world’s largest organisation of food and nutrition professionals – has endorsed the vegan diet, saying that the diet is suitable for everyone.
