Any Way You Look at It: Vegetarians Live Longer

longevity.jpgA recent article published by "Time" details seven different ways in which vegetarians are poised for longer, healthier lives than their meat-eating counterparts.

Results of various studies reveal that vegetarians are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. They are also less likely to be overweight, and have a lower overall risk of death. To top it off, vegetarians have even proven to have better moods!

In fact, according to the article, "A 2012 study randomly split participants into three diets: all-meat allowed, fish-only, and vegetarian no-meat. The researchers found that after two weeks, the people on the vegetarian diet reported more mood improvements than those on the other two diets."

The science is clear. A healthy, vegetarian diet not only prevents some of the most common chronic diseases, but also leads to an overall improved quality of life.
