Chronic disease medications side effects vs WFPB side effects

“The one unifying diet found to best prevent and treat many of these chronic diseases is a whole-food, plant-based diet,” (10 Greger, “How Not to Die”)

Possible side effects of medications -vs- possible side effects of WFPB

(Results found in basic google searches - With type 2 diabetes, blood pressure, and UC meds there are so many different types of drugs, I selected the most common side effects among them all and some of the most severe)

Statins - muscle pain/damage, liver damage, increased blood sugar, T2D, memory loss/confusion

T2D (various types) - liver disease, weight gain,

bladder cancer, hypoglycemia, UTI’s, yeast infections, kidney dysfunction, increased cholesterol

Blood pressure (various types) -headache, muscle cramps, dry mouth, depression, insomnia, rash, fatigue, upset stomach, diarrhea, constipation, joint pain, dizziness, erectile dysfunction

Ulcerative colitis (various types) - increased risk of serious heart-related problems and cancer, blood clots, liver/pancreas damage, headache, cramping, acne, higher risk of infections, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML)

WFPB - reduced risk of heart disease/T2

Diabetes/obesity/Alzheimers and certain cancers, weight loss, increased energy, lower cholesterol, improved mood, improved digestive health, strengthen immune system, reduced inflammation and oxidative damage
