Is a Vegetarian Diet a good diet?

It is not a good diet because where do you get your protein and it is a good diet because you are not eating saturated fats.

Background

The Vegan diet is good because it is a low risk of obesity,heart disease, diabetes and stroke. it also is better for a longer life expectancy. It does also got cons like you dont get enough protein or b12. There are no source showing it is better than other diets. There is no actual evidence showing that meats harm you.

Text Evidence

•"Anything someone does to move away from the Standard American Diet will make a huge difference in terms of diabetes, hypertension, obesity and heart disease," said Williams, referring to the nation's high consumption of sugar, saturated fat and processed foods.


•Julie Deardoff said "In general, eating foods that contain saturated fats raises the level of cholesterol in the blood, and high levels of LDL cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease and stroke." She is showing that this diet is a risk of death


•Jennifer Preyss said "About 2 billion people worldwide live on a meat-based diet, which is consumed in great quantities in wealthy countries like the United States, Britain and Australia." She is showing that diets with meat are more healthier.


•Tim Holcomb said "a chiropractic neurologist and nutritionist in Victoria, also encourages his clients to include lean meat in the diet, which offers essential B vitamins, especially B12, as well as essential enzymes and proteins for strong bones, healthy skin and blood." He is saying that meat diets give you a better health than a vegan diet.


•"Some people are more genetically able to get their protein from plants, but you have to be careful," Holcomb said. "And even then, you run the risk of B12 deficiency." He is saying that you still need b12.

Counterargument

Though there are some good factors in a Vegan Diet doesn't mean it is a good diet. There are a lot of bad things in this diet like no protein or b12 and there is nothing really showing that this is a better diet than others so this is a diet that you should not think about first.
