Dr. Greger’s posts on how diet, especially vegan diets affect health have been enlightening. In this video he says: “Those eating vegan had significantly lower IGF-1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor) levels and higher IGF binding proteins than those just eating vegetarian, suggesting that the more plant-based one’s diet becomes, the lower ones risk of fueling growth hormone dependent cancer growth.” It appears that eating healthy has different levels of benefits. Vegetarian is a good diet but vegan is even better for your health.
