Washington: Men, please take note. Consuming veggies including fruits such as apples, pears and green, leafy vegetables may prevent you from developing heart disease, some kinds of cancer, Type 2 diabetes and obesity, says a new study.

The study, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, says the benefits of vegetarian diets are much greater for men”>men than women”>men. Also, feeding on plant-based diets increases the life span, Independent Online reports.

Another study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, added that a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check and promote weight loss.

If men”>men are eating green food, protein replacemen”>ments may include pumpkin seeds, lentils, almonds, sesame seeds and cashews.

Meanwhile, Impossible Foods Inc., a leading creator of plant-based substitutes for meat and dairy products, has recently announced the introduction of the Impossible Burger 2.0, an improved recipe over previous meat substitutes that tastes, well, a lot meatier, Vox reports.

Production of meat alternatives is gradually gaining momen”>mentum. The alternative meat burgers like a Beyond Meat burger or the Impossible Burger, is a product made from plants that is meant to taste like meat, be marketed to meat-eating customers, and replace some of those customers’ meat purchases.

That’s what makes them different from veggie burgers, which have typically been aimed mostly at vegetarians.

Plant-based meat is absolutely safe but it is not a health food. For the most part, they are likely at least as healthy as the products they are replacing.
