The hotly-debated topic of which diet is best for Planet Earth might finally be over, thanks to a new study just published in Science Magazine. The study calls switching to a plant-based vegan diet the "single biggest way to reduce our environmental impact on the planet."

Over the years, we've seen a number of detractors to this way of eating (and living). But as we persist, more studies are done, and more benefits are discovered.

Here we are, 23 years later, continuing to examine the premise that plant-based diets ensure good health for not only humans, but the planet as well. Soon, the truth will be accepted: that a vegan diet can keep us healthier, longer, than any other diet, and does exactly the same for our planet.
