ADA Says Vegetarian and Vegan Diets are Healthful for All Stages of Life

Here is more arsenal for the veg movement: On July 1, 2009, the American Dietetic Association (ADA) updated its position paper on vegetarian/vegan diets, concluding that an animal-free diet is healthy for all ages.

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life-cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence and for athletes.

Say it loud, say it proud: I'm veg and I'm proud (and healthy, too!).
