After reading the recent article

which suggests that the Western Diet (WD) may lead to higher susceptibility, I am wondering: Are vegans in general less susceptible to infectious diseases?

Although not an infectious disease, The China Study ch. 9 mentions one particular autoimmune disease, Type I Diabetes, that correlates with cow milk/protein intake.

What infectious diseases are vegans less susceptible to have?


No. Infectious disease can affect any human being regardless of diet. What determines whether an individual is prone to contagion is their immune system.
