CARDIAC ATTACK!


Adopting a vegetarian diet is a powerful way to prevent heart disease. In fact, a recent British study found that switching to a vegetarian diet may cut your chances of developing heart disease by 32%! Animal foods tend to be high in cholesterol and saturated fat, major contributors to artery-clogging plaque.

In contrast, plant foods are low in saturated fat and contain no cholesterol. Zero. Zilch. Additionally, the most powerful cholesterol- lowering dietary agents are soluble fiber, unsaturated fats, and phytochemicals, all of which are found almost exclusively in plant foods.

Lighten up

Obesity is not just a vanity issue, but is now also linked to diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Science now shows that vegetarians have lower rates of obesity. In fact, the National Institutes of Health concluded that on average, people who avoid meat, dairy, and eggs have body mass indexes almost 20% lower than meat eaters. That translates into about 30 pounds less weight than non-vegetarians of similar height in certain age brackets.
