Moral benefits: The moral benefits (protest against factory farming of animals) are admirable. The health benefits are difficult to study given that vegans tend to have other good habits (no alcohol, no tobacco, focus on fitness). "the china study" was deeply flawed by reliance on death certificates during mao's famine. Be very sure to supplement wisely or veganism will ruin your health, maybe permanently.
