Vegetarians Live Longer Than Meat-Eaters

Vegetarians may live longer than meat-eaters, according to a new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The research involved over 70,000 members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and showed that vegetarian diets are linked to reduced death rates with more favorable results for males than females. The potential association between diet and mortality is a critical area of research, the authors explained.

Vegetarian diets have been linked to a lower risk of several chronic diseases, such as:

metabolic syndrome
ischemic heart disease (IHD)
diabetes mellitus

A previous study involving over 60,000 Britons suggested that vegetarians have a lower risk of developing cancer than meat-eaters.

A total of 73,308 men and women Seventh-day Adventists were involved in the research, led by Michael J. Orlich, M.D., of Loma Linda University in California, which observed all-cause and cause-specific mortality.

Dietary patients were evaluated using a questionnaire that categorized the subjects into 5 groups:

pesco-vegetarian - includes seafood
lacto-ovo-vegetarian - includes dairy and egg products
vegan - excludes all animal products

Vegetarian groups were inclined to be older, more highly educated, and more likely to be married. They also tended to drink less alcohol, smoke less, exercise more and be thinner.
