Ask Vegans AnythingCategory: QuestionsHello Totally Vegan Buzz! I’ve been vegan for almost a year and have never had any issues with my health until recently. My doctors are convinced that the reason for my constant HPV flare ups are because of my “weak immune system due to your vegan diet”. Now they’re saying I HAVE to eat fish or eggs in order to feel better. I do not know what to do. I love being vegan and I feel strongly about it’s morals. I’d appreciate any help or advice I could get from you guys. Thanks!

I don’t know too much about hpv, but I would get a second opinion. Vegans usually have good immune systems. Going vegan helped with my autoimmune issues so I feel like it wouldn’t make a health issue worse. But I may be totally wrong.

That’s absurd, make sure you are eating well, getting enough calories and micronutrients. And in fact new research shows, “the association of dietary patterns with hrHPV infection and cervical cancers and discourages unhealthy habits in favour of a Mediterranean-like diet”, which is a predominantly whole food plant based diet. Authors found processed meats and red meats to be associated with increased risk.

In particular, researchers found,”fruit and vegetable consumption, as well as the intake of nutrients (i.e., vitamins A, C, and E, folates, carotenoids, and minerals), has been associated with a reduced risk of HPV infection, CIN and CC [6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14]. These findings support the role of vitamins as protective nutrients against CC, via the inhibition of cancer cell proliferation [15], the stabilization of p53 [16], the prevention of DNA damage and the reduction of immune suppression [15,17]. the consumption of foods which maintain normal DNA methylation levels, such as plant-based foods, could potentially suppress the expression of HPV oncogenes, thereby reducing cell transformation rates and CC risk [3,17].”
