ADVANTAGES OF VEGETARIAN FOOD

Reduces risk of Heart Disease

Vegetarian diets are naturally lower in saturated fat, and cholesterol and higher in planner nutrients than most meat-based diets. Vegetarians have been shown to have a 24% lower risk of heart disease than non-vegetarians. New Harvard research has shown that high consumption of red meat and heme iron may increase the risk of heart disease by 50% among diabetics. World – renowned physician Dr. Dean Ornish found that patients on a law-fat vegetarian diet actually reversed heart disease.

Faster Weight Loss

On an average, vegetarians tend to be slimmer than meat eaters. Obesity rate in the general public consuming non vegetarian is extremely high, while in vegetarians, the obesity rate only ranges from zero to six percent. A vegetarian diet is low in fat and rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. Accompanied with daily exercise, this is surely the perfect formula for healthy weight loss.

Slows Aging Process

A 12-year Oxford study published in the British Medical Journal found that vegetarians outlive meat eaters by six years. Vegetarians generally suffer fewer degenerative diseases and cancers than their carnivore cousins. It’s been estimated that a third of all cancer patients developed their disease as a result of insufficient whole plant fibre in their diets. Limiting your intake or eating meat only on weekends is a perfectly balanced and healthy approach.

Reduces Global Warming

The United Nations said in its 2006 report that livestock generated more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined. Therefore, the single most important step an individual can take to reduce global warming is to adopt a vegetarian diet and stop eating meat, eggs, and dairy products. Science shows that going vegan is one of the most effective ways to fight global warming.

Develop Compassion For Animals

Animals in today’s factory farms have no legal protection from cruelty which would be illegal if it were inflicted on dogs or cats. Yet farmed animals are no less intelligent or capable of feeling pain than the dogs and cats we cherish as companions. A vegetarian lifestyle awakens our spirit of compassion and guides us towards a kinder, gentler society in which we exercise a moral choice to protect animals and not exploit them.

Cancer Prevention

A recent study has shown that students who have avoided consuming meat had a significant reduction in cancer risk. High fat content of meat and other animal products increases hormone production, thus increasing the risk of hormone-related cancers such as breast and prostate cancer. Whereas vegetarian diets and diets rich in high-fiber plant foods such as whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits offer a measure of protection from cancer.

Avoid Toxic Food Contaminants

Flesh foods are loaded with dangerous poisons and contaminants such as hormones, herbicides, pesticides, and antibiotics. As these toxins are all fat-soluble, they concentrate in the fatty flesh of animals. Not to mention the food being infested with viruses, bacteria, and parasites such as salmonella, trichinella ,other worms, and toxoplasmosis parasites.

Humans are Vegetarian By Design

Our flat teeth are perfect for grinding grains and vegetables, not for tearing apart animal flesh. Similarly, our hands are designed for gathering, not for flesh-ripping. Our saliva contains the enzyme alpha-amylase, the sole purpose of which is to digest the complex carbohydrates in plant foods. (This enzyme is not found in the saliva of carnivores). Basically we have all the right apparatus to consume vegetarian products, and none of the right apparatus for flesh foods.

Delicious World Of Vegetarian Cuisine

Vegetarian meals can be tasty, fast, and easy to prepare. Plus, you can make any of your favorite non-vegetarian dishes by substituting with ready-made meat alternatives. There are lots of vegetarian cookbooks available as well. An all-vegetarian Dell is perfect when you don’t have time to cook but don’t want to compromise on taste and quality.

Help End World Hunger

Every day forty thousand children on this planet needlessly starve to death. Crops that could be used to feed the hungry are instead being used to fatten animals raised for slaughter. If everyone on Earth received 25 percent of his or her calories from animal products, only 3.2 billon people could be nourished. If everyone ate a vegetarian diet, there would be more than enough food to nourish the world’s entire population of more than 6.3 billion people.
