Vegetarians live longer
There is no harm in eating meat what is bad is that one should not be addicted to it.
This is not our words, but latest reports gave us insight that if you eat meat on daily basis then it may reduce your life span. Researchers have come to the conclusion that vegetarians live longer for 4 years.
If you exclude meat from your diet incessantly for seventeen years, then you can expect to live for 3.6 years longer than meat eaters.
A study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association revealed that red and processed meat like bacon, sausage, salami, and ham are not good for health if you intake them on a daily basis.
Also, unprocessed red meat like pork, lamb, and beef increases mortality rates and has links to cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease.
” This data reinforces what we have known for so long — your diet has great potential to harm or heal,” said Brook shield Laurent, an assistant professor at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Apart from the fact that vegetarians live longer, there are some more benefits that vegetarians gain that prove why actually they outlive meat eaters:
Blood pressure issue
Studies show that vegetarians do have lower blood pressure on an average. So if you have high blood pressure you must include some veggies in your platter.
Fewer chances of heart diseases
One of the studies that were conducted in the year 2013 showcased that vegetarians were 32 percent less likely to develop heart diseases.
Lower risk of Cancer
A vegetarian diet includes many nutrients that protect the body from developing a life taking disease like cancer as well. And the studies showed how vegans had the lowest risk of cancer especially breast cancer.
Lower risk of Diabetes
Vegetarians can rejoice over another fact that there is lower risk for developing widespread life deadly disease called diabetes for them. So diabetics should include veggies in order to maintain weight and to improve blood sugar control.
Less likely to be obese
Vegetarians tend to be slimmer than those who eat meat. They also enjoy the benefits of lower cholesterol and body mass index (BMI). Veg diet can bring your weight down and help to maintain weight as well.
