Summary: A pro-vegetarian diet that emphasizes a higher proportion of plant-based foods compared to animal-based foods may help lower the risks of dying from heart disease and stroke by up to 20 percent, according to a large-scale study. Researchers suggest that substituting some of the meat in your diet with vegetables may be a simple way to lower the risk of heart-related death.

    Interesting facts…I have been a Vegetarian for about 30 years now. I don’t eat mean or chicken but I do eat fish a couple of times each week, mostly salmon. My diet suits me and I am healthy and energetic…I don’t miss having meat in my diet, never have, and likely never will. Yet some people still try to convince me that I “need” meat.

      That’s awesome, glad you’re so dedicated to it! I haven’t eaten any meat in 11 years.. I don’t care to have it and I don’t miss it. I’m healthier now than when I ate meat and the impact is has on one’s consciousness is continuously beneficial. So after thirty years of a mostly plant-based diet, how do you feel?

        Healthy and light in body…meat tends to take longer to be process and break down in the body…just image meat sitting in the stomach for a long period of time in intense heat, waiting to be processed. It’s equivalent to leaving meat to rot in the hot sun!
