Why Do Vegetarians Live Longer?

What a vegan diet brings: “Nearly a decade of extra life — that’s what you get when you move away from eating animal foods and toward a plant-based diet. This is really exciting science for anyone seeking healthy longevity (and who isn’t?)!”

From this great post on HuffPost Healthy Living: Type 2 diabetes can be prevented, treated and reversed by adopting a plant-based diet.

  • “Consuming the amount of cholesterol found in just a single egg a day may cut a woman’s life short as much as smoking five cigarettes daily for 15 years”.
  • Lung diseases, the #3 killer in the US, can be prevented with a plant-based diet.
  • Alzheimer’s disease is #6, and those who eat meat are three times more likely to suffer from it than vegetarians.
  • Kidney failure risks significantly increases when consuming animal protein, animal fat, and cholesterol.
