The doctor explained that for many categories of people it is absolutely contraindicated to refuse animal foods and switch to an exclusively plant-based diet. There can be many health-threatening consequences.
Still, Moisenko recommended that people 40-50 and older limit the animal fats found in poultry meat and switch to fish.
“Many vegetarians appear. They have dull eyes, a dull complexion, they look malnourished. However, people aged 40-50 and over should limit the animal fats found in poultry meat and switch to fish.
As the expert emphasizes, how young a person looks depends on genetics, lifestyle, fullness and meaning. But it has nothing to do with vegetarianism.
The doctor also touched on the possible consequences of refusing animal foods. “If a person uses only vegetable oils, they lose the ability to take in vitamin B12, absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, because these vitamins only come from animal fats. These vitamins are involved in many physiological processes, and with their deficiency, a number of diseases will arise: B12 deficiency anemia and osteoporosis with age, ”warned the nutritionist.
