SOME OF THE WAYS IN WHICH A VEGETARIAN DIET IS HEALTHY
Vegetarians have the lowest rate of atherosclerotic heart disease of any group in the United States.
Meat eaters have a ten times greater risk of breast and colon cancer than do pure vegetarians.
On a low fat vegetarian diet 90% of adult-onset diabetics can reduce or entirely eliminate their insulin injections.
Tens of millions of Americans suffer from osteoporosis due partly to excess animal protein consumption.
Excess protein places great strain on kidney function.

Meat-eating women have levels of chemical pollution in their breast milk 35 times higher than in the breast milk of pure vegetarians.
