Veg Black Men Have Lower Risk of Heart Disease

Thousands of black men were surveyed about their dietary proclivities, and those who were vegetarian or vegan were found to be less likely to develop cardiovascular illnesses.

Research recently published in the journal Public Health Nutrition, indicates that African American males who abstain from consuming meat, are less likely to develop certain chronic illnesses than those who do. The study, which was conducted by Loma Linda University and funded by the National Institutes of Health, surveyed 26,000 black Seventh Day Adventists, and according to the results, participants who were vegan or vegetarian, had lower cardiovascular disease incidence than those who labeled themselves as semi-vegetarians, pesco-vegetarians, and non-vegetarians. The vegetarian study subjects were also found to have lower rates of hypertension, diabetes, high blood pressure, and total cholesterol. “There’s a growing body of evidence that vegetarian diets lower the risk for cardiovascular diseases and other diseases,” said Doctor Patty Herring, the research co-investigator and associate professor at the Loma Linda University School of Public Health.
