A recent study has shown that people who follow a strict vegan diet are more at risk of developing blood clots and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). These conditions often lead to heart attacks and strokes. Vegan diets are similar to vegetarian diets where the person tries to eat no meat or animal products of any kind.
After considerable clinical research, studies have shown that people who eat meat experience considerably higher risk of cardiovascular problems than vegetarians. However, the new study has shown that those people following vegan diet plan may not be as low risk as they thought.
