The Claudia’s Secrets website was inspired by the author’s passionate interest in the wellness of her own body and spirit, so by a very personal learning experience that the author decided to share.

The experience she has acquired, and now wants to disseminate to as many people as possible, concerns the benefits that come from practising a healthy vegan diet, which does good by improving cell regeneration, without restricting the imagination we bring to the kitchen:

in addition to physical health, our food is something we should enjoy eating and also seeing.

The site explains and focuses on how vegans are less at risk than omnivores and even vegetarians of falling prey to cancer of the colon, of the breast or of the prostate, or to hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. In addition, vegans have a lower body mass index and lower levels of total plasmatic cholesterol and LDL.

Recent studies have confirmed that well-balanced vegan diets are also capable of preventing and countering other diseases, some of them serious, that are suffered by modern man (degenerative diseases of the muscular, skeleton and articular system, of the nervous system and of the metabolism, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis etc.).

That is because vegetable-based foods, unlike those of animal origin, are rich in vitamins, mineral salts and invaluable trace elements with alkalinising properties, anti-oxidant and pre-biotic factors and fibres, as well as being low on saturated fats and containing no cholesterol.

In particular, an accurate study recently conducted by the Milan local health authority, using the methodology of medicines based on effectiveness tests and examining all the scientific research conducted over the last 15 years, demonstrated that vegan diets are the best in terms of prevention and therapy for type 2 diabetes mellitus, achieving a better result than both a well-applied Mediterranean diet (which was also shown to be beneficial, but less so than a vegan diet), and metformine and other top-choice anti-diabetic medications.

The catalyst that decided the author to embark on an information campaign is the fact that poor alimentary habits derive from the public being bombarded by the media with substandard information that mainly targets children, who are unconsciously most vulnerable to it and the ones most easily taken in by seductive advertising that is designed especially to induce dependence on junk food.

We know that food is a world-class business: the media churn out advertisements packaged by the industry and the multinationals and children are a crucial target, because if you get them while they are young, there is a good chance that you will have faithful consumers for life.

Education is the really effective weapon for opposing children’s fatal attraction to junk food.

But educating children to consume correctly is a process that is entrusted to adults, starting with the children’s own parents, and that is why those adults need tools, so that they can always stay up to date and be capable of diversifying their daily diet, making it attractive to everyone and so also serving up happiness at the table in those important moments of the day when everyone gathers around it to enjoy a meal. Children are very aware of the energy that flows around the family table and reflect the harmony or the tension given off by adults.

The author decided to use this space offered by the website to create a virtual world where anyone can come to discover real values: the ones that count, the ones that make our lives better, highlighting the beauty, the colours, the goodness and the variety that fruit and vegetables can give us every day, while also giving us untold benefits and without causing any pain or suffering to other living beings in the process.

The aim is to expand on the popular view, so that people can come and visit new spaces, pushing them out of the comfort zone of their cultural convictions and encouraging them to start empathising with nature, the soul of every reason for life, simplifying our dialogues, cutting out the frippery and accompanying them in the wonderful discovery of real things, the ones that give real meaning to simple notions of life.

The aim here is to raise awareness among the website’s readers about the importance of respecting every single thing that we consider to be of vital significance in our everyday life, starting with food and continuing logically with issues concerning the environment, animals, the human spirit, wellness, entertainment and sport.
