Health Benefits

Some health benefits of vegetarianism are:

  • Generally lower blood pressure and control of type-2 diabetes
  • A reduction in the risk of colon cancer
  • Lower breast cancer rates
  • There is a correlation between a longer life-expectancy and a vegetarian diet
  • The endurance of vegetarians has been shown to be greater than that for non-vegetarians
  • Osteoporosis is partly caused by excess dietary protein depleting calcium in our body
  • A reduction in the risk of heart disease
  • A reduction in the risk of diverticulosis (infected sacs in the colon)
  • Less body pesticide contamination
  • Lower lung cancer rates and more...
