There are no phytochemicals or antioxidants in animal products. On average, plant foods contain more than 60 times as many antioxidants as animal-based foods.

  • Unveiling a Silent Obstructor: Phytobezoar in the Third Duodenal Segment
    on May 18, 2024

    We present a case of obstruction in the third portion of the duodenum secondary to a phytobezoar in an adult patient with no surgical history and without a vegan diet. High intestinal obstruction due to a phytobezoar is rarely described in the literature, posing a diagnostic challenge when evaluating potential differentials in the emergency setting. Subsequently, we conduct a review focusing on tomographic findings and the surgical specimen, highlighting key points to consider when addressing…

  • “Climate-friendly” diets from an allergy point of view
    on May 17, 2024

    Since the EAT-Lancet Commission’s call for a change in diet towards more plant-based foods, especially protein sources, this so called “Planetary Health Diet (PHD)” has been widely discussed. While for some the reduction in animal foods is not enough and vegan diets are advocated to save the climate, others are sounding the alarm that the reduction is too drastic and that the PHD makes it impossible to provide a diet that meets our needs (of essential nutrients). In addition to climate […]

  • Cardiovascular health and cancer risk associated with plant based diets: An umbrella review
    on May 15, 2024

    CONCLUSIONS: Plant-based diets appear beneficial in reducing cardiometabolic risk factors, as well as CVDs, cancer risk and mortality. However, caution should be paid before broadly suggesting the adoption of A/AFPDs since the strength-of-evidence of study results is significantly limited by the large study heterogeneity alongside the potential risks associated with potentially restrictive regimens.

  • Variables associated with owner perceptions of the health of their dog: Further analysis of data from a large international survey
    on May 15, 2024

    In a recent study (doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0265662), associations were identified between owner-reported dog health status and diet, whereby those fed a vegan diet were perceived to be healthier. However, the study was limited because it did not consider possible confounding from variables not included in the analysis. The aim of the current study was to extend these earlier findings, using different modelling techniques and including multiple variables, to identify the most important…
