Study Shows Vegetarians May Outlive Omnivores

After analyzing more than five years of data on 70,000 subjects, researchers conclude that abstaining from meat may be beneficial for longevity.

A study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine earlier this week found that vegetarianism may be a key factor in living a long and healthy life. Researchers analyzed data from 2002 to 2007 of more than 70,000 participants who attended the Seventh-day Adventist Church and discovered that vegetarians had a 12-percent reduced incidence of death over the course of the study than those who consume meat. The lead study author Dr. Michael Orlich, who is the program director of the Preventative Medicine residency at Loma Linda University, noted a cruelty-free diet’s healthful proclivities. “I think this adds to the evidence showing the possible beneficial effect of vegetarian diets in the prevention of chronic diseases and the improvement of longevity,” he tells Reuters.
