Fruitarian Diet vs. Vegan Diet vs. Omnivorous Diet Research on Health Benefits and Risks (Includes research on cancer, weight loss and diabetes)

I decided to include the following list as a resource for those of you who need data and proof to believe in the statements I make on my videos and articles regarding the fruitarian diet and vegan diet. The following list includes over a hundred different research papers, all taken from the National Center for Biotechnology Information website, which is a government website. The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information. The website contains some of the most reliable research done in the world and is available to the public.

I am sure that non-believers will doubt each and every single one of these findings and it is very likely that they will accuse me, and other fruitarian diet / vegan diet supporters of cherry picking the articles that support our claims. It is possible there will be other people who will argue against the procedures used to perform all of this research and they will likely accuse the research teams of being biased with their research. If that was to be a possible argument again fruitarian diet friendly research, or vegan diet friendly research, then the same could be said about the research that tries to disprove the benefits of a fruitarian diet or a vegan diet by hiding the health risks and negative effects of meat and animal product consumption. This is the reason why I do not base my decision to incorporate fruitarian diet on the research I find or the opinions of others. I base my choices on my own logic, intuition and of course, experimentation. For as long as I have been following the fruitarian diet I have not experienced any negative effects other than minor detox symptoms which have subsided over time.

Whether you are looking for information to transition into a fruitarian diet or a vegan diet, the following research will likely help you learn more and feel more comfortable with your decision. If you are already a fruitarian or vegan, then you can use these links to help others become more educated and start their own transition.

I hope you find these resources helpful, for more information, I recommend you read books like Destination Eden and Return to the Brain of Eden.

I wish you love, health and much joy,

RESEARCH ON FRUITARIAN DIET, VEGAN DIET, VEGETARIAN DIET AND OMNIVOROUS DIET’S HEALTH BENEFITS AND RISKS.

The following research includes finding on the effects of diet on cholesterol levels, information on how a saturated fatty acid-rich diet induces an obesity-linked pro inflammatory gene expression profile in adipose tissue of subjects at risk of metabolic syndrome, the effect of a single high-fat meal on endothelial function in healthy subjects,  the effects of a high-fat meal on pulmonary function in healthy subjects, the effects of low insulin like growth factor in vegans, correlations between heart disease and erectile dysfunction, correlations between cardiovascular disease and the Atkins diet, findings showing reduced risk of colon cancer from people following a vegan diet, pollutants found in meat, information regarding meat, fruit, diabetes, and weight management, information about veganism and its relationship with insulin resistance and intramyocellular lipid and much more.

    Tons of great information! I especially liked the ones related to working out on the various eating beliefs. Thanks for documenting everything to have in one place.

      Thanks Michael! I am glad you like my fruitarian bodybuilder website! I also thought it would be a good idea to have all this info about the different diets in one place. Tons of people have no knowledge of the fruitarian diet and its benefits.
