There are many different interpretations of the so-called plant-based diet. For example, vegan, vegetarian, the Mediterranean diet, the flexitarian diet, and simply limiting meat intake in favor of plant-based foods all qualify as plant-based diets. The Mintel report is available only through purchase. Linares, too, sees increased fiber intake as a major benefit. According to the Cleveland Clinic, plant-based diets also help lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive disease, colon and breast cancers, and obesity. Past research suggests that vegans may be deficient in vitamin D, vitamin B12, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and sometimes iron and zinc as well.
