    Lightbulb 22 Reasons to Go Vegetarian Right Now - benefits of vegetarian diet

    Just came across to following link, sharing for NB friends.


    1 You'll live a lot longer. Vegetarians live about seven years longer, and vegans (who eat no animal products) about 15 years longer than meat eaters, according to a study from Loma Linda University. These findings are backed up by the China Health Project (the largest population study on diet and health to date), which found that Chinese people who eat the least amount of fat and animal products have the lowest risks of cancer, heart attack and other chronic degenerative diseases. And a British study that tracked 6,000 vegetarians and 5,000 meat eaters for 12 years found that vegetarians were 40 percent less likely to die from cancer during that time and 20 percent less likely to die from other diseases.

    For balance 21 reasons, please follow the following link (not posted as it's a big list)

    Its not that hard to come off meat really. Theres loads of soya based products out there which taste exactly like meat. Infact I'd bet its almost impossible to tell the difference between some products, namley chicken soya.

    True, but a body needs meat no? At least that's what doctors tell people here
