In a pioneering exploration of the health benefits of veganism, the Stanford University Department of Medicine recently conducted a comprehensive study utilizing identical twins. The research delved into the profound impacts of adopting a fully plant-based diet, shedding light on its benefits for overall well-being.

The study paired 22 identical twins where one twin followed an omnivorous diet and the other an animal-free diet. It unraveled the intricacies of how a vegan diet may influence various aspects of health. From nutritional advantages to potential long-term effects, the research found that a vegan diet improves overall cardiovascular health.

Additionally, the twins following a vegan diet showed about a 20% drop in fasting insulin (a higher insulin level is a risk factor for developing diabetes), and they also lost an average of 4.2 more pounds (1.9kg) than the omnivores.
