Yep. Veganism has seen a 500% increase in the past few years. Better hop on the train now boys.
That's because it's another fad diet.
Like I showed before, extreme and fad diets keep ending up getting disproven by leading experts, as they are not what we are naturally biologically supposed to eat, and usually makes you avoid too many key foods (which still have nutritional value), and narrow down your diet to too little variety.
Ultimately, what nutritionists and experts have always been able to agree on, is balance and variety is the key to an ideal diet, not extremes.
Not quite. Unlike fad diets, veganism doesn't seek to exclude anything nutritionally-wise, it only seeks to exclude the use of animal products. I won't pretend that omnivorous and vegan diets don't differ in nutrition, that's why we especially rely on supplementation -- through that supplementation we can reach a fully balanced diet.
As far as what we're "naturally biologically supposed to eat," we haven't shared the same foods with our ancestors in centuries. Instead of cross-breeding plants, we now do it in labs with genomes wherein we can selectively breed for better features including nutrition and taste. 90% of our crops are genetically modified, which is also going into your meat.
