Avoiding Meat and Dairy for Your Health

Traditional American subs and sandwiches contain large amounts of cheese, mayo, and deli meats, but changing up your sandwich order can have positive implications for your health. By cutting out animal products, you help decrease your risk for heart disease, cancer, inflammation, and acne. Eating processed or red meat regularly can increase your heart disease and cancer risk by 18 percent and 29 percent, respectively.

By introducing a few plant-based lunches or dinners to your regular diet, you can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease 30 years later. Some studies even claim that a mostly plant-based diet can extend your life expectancy by 10 years or more. Next time you visit Jason's Deli, try cutting out the meat to protect your health for longer. Luckily, you can build a veggie, nutrient-packed sandwich without risking your health by eating too much meat and dairy products.
