According to the World Health Organization, over half a million Nigerians die from chronic disease or non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in a year. While 1 out of 5 Nigerian adults over the age of 30 will likely die prematurely from NCDs, including cardiovascular (heart) disease.
The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and stroke), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes.

A low-fat whole food vegan diet and raw juicing of leafy green vegetables has been shown to prevent and sometimes reverse signs of these chronic diseases.
World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans around the world every 1 November. Many of the reasons for or benefits related to transitioning to a pure plant-based lifestyle include animal welfare, personal health, environmental sustainability and spiritual growth.
