Eat Healthy: Reduce Stress

In a breaking news bulletin, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) reports that people who consume a plant based diet may actually lower their stress and anxiety levels.  PCRM findings were based on a study published in Nutritional Neuroscience, the results of which, highlighted that when male vegan participants increased fruit and vegetable consumption their anxiety scores were lowered.  Moreover, when female participants shifted to a plant based diet, their stress scores were lowered due to the elimination of animal foods and a reduced intake of sweets.

Nutritional Balance and Emotional Health go Hand in Hand
