Patient discussion about vegetal

A. It is a good idea to cut back on red-meat consumption, and increase the amount of fruit and vegetables in your diet, as these factors can lower the risk for developing colo-rectal cancer, whereas red meat has been found to be a risk factor in developing the disease. Other than that, fruit and vegetables are rich with fibers, that can ease constipation and help the digestive system.

Q. Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables? what would i gain if i'll do so?

A. eating more fruits and vegetables will bring a positive effect for your body health, but the most important source of protein is coming from meat, and there's no such valid evidence-based-data to show us that meat is no good for our body.

so, as long as you eat all those meat, fruit, vegetables, and even carbs in proper amount, you will probably get no harmful effect.
