vegetarians may live longer

One of my first posts was on being a vegetarian and the documentary that pushed me to take the leap. What got me in that documentary, Forks Over Knives, was a study they talked about. The study is called the China Study in which they contribute heart disease, cancer, and diabetes to eating meat. Recently, I have read about another large study done on the effects of a vegetarian, vegan and pescetarian diet on lifespan. The findings were not surprising to me but it is good to have scientific proof backing up thoughts and theories that I have heard. I wanted to share that study here: Vegetarians May Live Longer
