Plant-based protein-Healthier-“GAMECHANGER” in Netflix

THE 41 VEGAN DOCUMENTARIES YOU HAVE TO WATCH

These must-watch vegan documentaries, short films, and movies on Netflix will open your mind and heart to living a plant-based, cruelty-free lifestyle.

A study from DuPont Nutrition & Health found that on a global scale, 65 percent of people are consuming more plant-based foods and beverages. More people are ditching animal products altogether in favor of a vegan diet; the Veganuary campaign had a record-breaking run this year with more than 250,000 people partaking. Six out of 10 people who participated said they would stay vegan after the initiative was over.

Don’t feel bad if you still think that meat means muscle means power-Completely falsehood empire created and the truth is not coming up that plant-based diet is the best way to be healthy.

A 2013 survey — published on the blog The Vegan Truth — asked roughly 8,000 vegans what motivated them to adopt the lifestyle. Forty-two percent said watching an educational video, movie, or film was the leading reason.

We were told that leaner meat could be an option including eggs but there is a good biochemical reason not to eat meat. Heme iron is from animal meat 1 mg / day hem iron increases heart disease by 37%. It is not just red meat but it is ingestion of any animal protein, highly inflammatory products are produced and the only plant-based protein diet could reverse heart disease.

“GAMECHANGER”

Simply drinking cow hormone could increase cortisol and estrogen levels. There is a myth that Soy increases estrogen but real truth s that it has phytoestrogens that has the opposite effect, lowering estrogen.  Here we are talking about non processed carbohydrates not processed carbs like sugar etc.

Vegan Filmmakers

Last year, an international vegan film festival launched in Canada. The Ottawa International Vegan Film Festival aims to showcase the work of vegan creatives and films that focus on “healthier, compassionate, environmentally friendly” lifestyles. The festival is said to be the first of its kind.

Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn are two vegan filmmakers who have been celebrated by the masses. They are the directors behind “Cowspiracy” and “What The Health,” two of the most pivotal films for the vegan movement. Many celebrities, including Ne-Yo and Lewis Hamilton, credit the latter for motivating them to try a plant-based diet.

Chris Delforce — founder of non-profit Aussie Farms, which aims to expose the animal cruelty found in the farming industries — is the writer, director, and editor of “Dominion,” as well as its predecessor “Lucent.”

Lee Fulkerson is the director of “Forks Over Knives,” a documentary that promotes a whole-food, plant-based diet as a way to avoid or even reverse disease.

In 2017, British comedian Simon Amstell release a BBC film called “Carnage.” The satirical film is set in the year 2067 when all of the British public is vegan.

James Cameron — perhaps best known for his films “The Terminator,” “Titanic,” and “Avatar” — is an advocate of vegan living. Cameron recently stated that people need to “wake the [expletive] up” about the climate crisis. Cameron encourages people to adopt a plant-based diet to lower their environmental impact. He named diet one of the “biggest, most important ways that we could effect change.” 

Cameron is one of the executive directors of “The Game Changers,” along with vegan actor and activist Pamela Anderson. The film was directed by Louie Psihoyos. The vegan, Oscar-winning filmmaker also directed the 2009 film “The Cove,” which explores the “gruesome secret” of fishermen in Taiji, Japan, who capture and kill dolphins.

Now vegan eggs just like egg shells are available made of of legumes.

French Entrepreneurs Have Developed Vegan Eggs That ‘Hatch’

Biologists Philippine Soulères and Sheryline Thavisouk are the co-founders of new vegan egg company Les Merveilloeufs—”merveilleux” translates to “marvelous” and “oeufs” means “eggs.”

The recipe for “marvelous eggs” is still in development, however, the duo confirmed to Euro News that it is legume-based. In a bid to make their eggs as realistic as possible, they have also created a shell. Currently, it’s made from plastic, but a new eco-friendly alternative is in the works.

“We are in the midst of talking to experts at the moment to make sure we develop the most eco-friendly eggshell possible,” they explained to Euro News.

A 2018 study by the Cleveland Clinic found that eating red meat may increase the risk of heart disease 1,000 percent more than a vegan diet.

The research showed that trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) can lead to the development of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and strokes. TMAO is a small, colorless amine oxide. It is generated from choline, betaine, and carnitine by gut microbial metabolism.

Diet and gut microbial flora determine TMAO levels. In humans, there is a correlation between high TMAO levels and increased risk for heart disease and premature death.

In the study, 113 participants were fed meal plans where 25 percent of their daily calories came from either red meat, white meat, or non-meat protein sources.

After one month on the red meat diet, average TMAO levels increased three-fold. Some participants showed a significant increase of 1,000 percent compared to those on the non-meat diet.

The meat-eating group experienced similar increases. When participants stopped sourcing their protein from red meat, their TMAO levels abated.

The study also found that consumption of red meat worsens kidney function, hindering its efficiency in expelling the TMAO compounds.

Heart Health And Plant-Based Diets

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., responsible for 840,768 deaths in 2016. According to the American College of Cardiology, from 2006 to 2016, death rates from cardiovascular disease increased 18.6 percent. The annual total cost of cardiovascular disease is $351.2 billion.

Studies have shown that a plant-based diet can improve heart health.

A 2018 American Heart Association (AHA) study found that cutting out animal products lowers the risk for heart disease more than the AHA-recommended diet. The eight-week-long study analyzed 100 participants. They followed either a plant-based diet or the AHA-recommended diet, which includes lean meat, fish, and low-fat dairy.

The plant-based group saw the biggest reduction in inflammation, which is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.

According to another AHA studya plant-based diet may lower the risk of death from a heart attack by 19 percent. The study analyzed four dietary patterns in middle-aged American adults who were followed up with from 1987 to 2016. Those who ate more “healthy plant foods” received higher scores for reduced risk. Conversely, those who ate the most animal foods received lower scores.

“Healthy plant-based diets, which are higher in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, tea, and coffee and lower in animal foods, were associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease mortality and all-cause mortality,” the study concluded.
