Eating red meat may increase the risk of heart disease 1,000 percent more than a vegan diet, a new study by Cleveland Clinic has found. Led by Stanley Hazen, M.D., Ph.D., the research complements previous studies showing that trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) in the gut can lead to the development of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes; high levels of TMAO in the blood are used to predict possible future heart problems and even death risks. TMAO is produced when gu

According to researchers at Oxford University, eschewing animal products will reduce an individual's carbon footprint by 73 percent. A new study conducted by researchers at Oxford University and published in environmental journal Science found that following a plant-based diet is “the single biggest way” to reduce global environmental destruction. In one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind, researchers spent five years compiling data from 40,000 farms in 119 countri
Science confirms what we know from our research and study of centenarians in “Blue Zones” regions. The longest-lived people in the world share nine commonalities: they move naturally in their daily lives; eat a plant-slant diet, go to happy hour and drink Wine at 5; they wake up in the morning with purpose; find ways to down shift and shed stress; eat to 80 percent full; belong to faith-based communities; always put family first; and have close friends with similar values – w

Without a doubt, veganism is steadily on the rise, growing daily with news of its vast advantages for human health, for the struggling and depleted planet, for the billions of animals that are needlessly tortured and slaughtered every year for food, as well as for many other remarkable reasons. In response to this growing demand is a delicious, inspiring, and rapidly expanding supply of vegan foods, restaurants, educational opportunities, cooking courses, meal kit delivery pr
About a year into a relationship with my now-wife (and Seed co-founder), Michelle, I got sick. Really sick. All of a sudden I couldn’t use my arm or my leg; it was terrifying. Eventually I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Standard treatment was Methotrexate, which is essentially a lighter dose of chemotherapy. I got weekly injections and steroids, and it took them forever to get it under control. Over the course of two years it got worse and worse, to the point where
The numbers are hard to stomach: Vegetarian Research Group revealed approximately 7.5 million United States citizens currently partake in an animal product-free diet. PETA announced an annual of 27 billion animals being slaughtered for food. A single human, converted to a vegetarian diet, can save over 100 animals annually. Farmed animals consume over seventy percent of several major grains needed for their consumption; one third of all raw materials and U.S. fossil fuels. Th
