Vegetarian Diet Reduces Chances of Heart Disease

Vegetarians have even more to be happy about while meat eaters have to rethink their food preferences. A study from the University of Oxford found a vegetarian diet cuts the risk of ischemic heart disease by up to 32 per cent. Sounds like a massive proportion? That figure even takes into account variables like sex, age, activity level and smoking.

This study is pretty comprehensive considering it was done on over 44,000 participants, making it the largest study ever conducted on vegetarians and meat eaters.
So what edge do salad eaters have over steak enthusiasts? It all boils down to the lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure brought about by a low-fat diet. This makes vegetarians less prone to heart diseases.
