Vegan diets are becoming more and more popular in western societies. If well-planned, vegan diets may exhibit various health effects. But there are several critical nutrients that need to be taken into account. How can the nutrient supply of vegans be assessed? Do vegans have a lower risk for diet-related diseases like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or cancer? And is there a therapeutical potential of vegan diets in the treatment of diet-related diseases? In this seminar, these questions and more will be adressed and discussed.
