Hard to ask for more from a change in diet

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association analyzed nutritional intake data from more than 100,000 postmenopausal women (in the Nurses’ Health Study) over a period of 20 years, and the researchers concluded that “women who ate high levels of plant protein had lower risks of premature death, cardiovascular disease and dementia-related death compared with women who ate less plant proteins”.

These lowered risks were pretty small for each of those outcomes, but still doesn’t it seem worth it to eat more plant protein instead of meat, meat, meat if, for example, making that switch would lower your risk of dementia by 20 %?

Pretty much of a no-brainer, if you ask me.
