Study Finds Link Between Vegetarian Diet And Lower Death Rates

June 6, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Many studies have associated vegetarian diets with a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including hypertension, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. Now a new U.S. study based on data collected from more than 70,000 Seventh Day Adventists has found a link between vegetarian diets and lower mortality rates. The researchers acknowledged that vegetarian groups tend to be older, better educated, and more likely to be married, to drink less alcohol, to smoke less, to exercise more and to be thinner.
