The benefits of eating less meat according to Maria Luisa Mosconi

Maria Luisa Mosconi explains that a diet based on products of plant origin, in which fruits, vegetables, cereals, beans, legumes and nuts stand out, is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. In addition, people who do not eat meat (vegetarians) generally eat fewer calories and fat, have less weight and have a lower risk of heart disease than non-vegetarians, says Maria Luisa Mosconi.
Even reducing meat intake has a protective effect. Research carried out by Maria Luisa Mosconi indicates that those who eat red meat have a higher risk of suffering from heart disease, stroke or diabetes. Processed meats also increase the risk of dying from these diseases.
