Are there any scientific publications trying to estimate, in case of a massive conversion to vegan diet either in the world or in a given country, one or more of the following:

  • the number of people that wouldn't be suffering from cardiometabolic diseases;
  • the number of life years not lost;
  • the cost of drugs we would stop using;
  • the cost of disabilities not being developed;
  • etc.
  • This is actually an interesting question, but I voted to close it. Waaay too broad. There will be no 'right' answer – Steve Feb 2 '17 at 20:56
  • Guys are you really sure there are TONS of articles on the subject? I barely know one, and I'm ready to publish the answer once the question is re-opened. I'm not asking for opinions, I'm asking for articles published on scientific journals. There are not too many on this subject. Please consider re-opening the question. – Attilio Feb 3 '17 at 2:07

    Lists of things don't really make good questions, why not just ask one of your bullet points at a time? – Robert Longson Feb 3 '17 at 7:04
  • @RobertLongson because in this way the question is more specific: by investigating relations between two or more subjects = bullet points you are going deeper into the subject. being the discipline so vast you must trace connections between social phenomena, and not many studies have been done with this methodology. again, let the question re-open and I will post good studies. – Attilio Feb 3 '17 at 14:32
