Expatriates who follow a vegan lifestyle might want to look at their nutritional needs.
Recent research has identified an increased risk of heart problems among people who follow a strict no meat and no animal product diet.
Published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the study found that vegans are increasing their risk of developing blood clots and atherosclerosis, both of which are known to lead to heart attacks and stroke.
However, Dui Li, who worked on the report, noted that the conclusions did not stretch to vegetarians, who are known to have a lower risk of cardiovascular problems than meat eaters.
Vegan expatriate medical insurance customers who are concerned might want to talk to their health practitioner about their nutritional needs.
Iron, zinc, vitamin B12 and omega 3 fatty acids are among the most common nutrients commonly lacking in a vegan diet.
