Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Plant-based diets are dietary patterns that support a high consumption of plant-based foods as vegetables, whole grains, fruits, legumes, seeds, and nuts, and strongly reduce the consumption of most animal products. Examples of plant-based diets include traditional Mediterranean, flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan diets. Recent studies have linked plant-based diets to lower rates of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Increased consumption of plant-based foods could also have beneficial effects on the environment. The aim of this Special Issue will be to investigate the correlations between health and plant-based diets and to evaluate divergent plant-based dietary interventions in clinical practice.
