Vegan victory.

The prospective cohort study of >70K Japanese adults with detailed food diaries spanning over two decades has all the Vegans in Portland asking, who’s scoffing now? Notwithstanding all the limitations that come with any prospective dietary study, this one confirmed higher death rates among those in the lowest quintile of plant-based protein intake. What’s more, models demonstrate substituting just 3% of red meat protein intake with a plant-based alternative lowers all-cause mortality, as well as specifically death from cardiovascular disease or cancer. TBL: The next time your patient asks what diet changes could lower her risk of dying from cancer, you wouldn’t be wrong to suggest substituting her next hamburger with some delicious falafel. | Budhathoki, JAMA Intern Med 2019
