According to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarians tend to have lower overall cancer rates. The Adventist Health Study found that meat-eaters had a 54% increased risk for prostate cancer and 88% increased risk for colorectal cancer, even after controlling for age, sex, and smoking.
Vegetarian diets are associated with a lower risk of heart disease, and on average, vegans have cholesterol levels more than 40 points lower than meat-eaters. Physicians have reversed heart disease by placing patients on programs that include plant-based diets.
In short with the US Surgeon General's prediction that over 300,000 deaths per year are related to obesity there must be a way to help fight this. While a vegetarian diet won't be the end all solution it certainly helps!
Vegetarian foods take a fraction of the land, water and energy required to produce meat. Meat production’s squandering of our most important resources effects everyone, but hits the global poor the hardest.
As Time magazine notes, “Around the world as more water is diverted to raising pigs and chickens instead of producing crops for direct consumption, millions of wells are going dry.”
In a growing world where over 1 billion people are already malnourished or lack clean water, meat unnecessarily overuses more resources.
The United Nations reports that “the livestock sector may well be the leading player in the reduction of biodiversity, since it is the major driver of deforestation as well as one of the leading drivers of land degradation, pollution, climate change, overfishing, sedimentation of coastal areas and facilitation of invasions by alien species.”
