Vegetarians Live Longer Than Meat-Eaters, Study Finds

New York, New York, June 3, 2013 (Wall Street Journal):
Vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters, according to a
study published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, a
Journal of the American Medical Association. The authors
tracked 73,308 members of the Seventh-day Adventist
Church for almost six years. The church is known for
promoting a vegetarian diet, though not all of its
followers adhere to that teaching. Researchers found out
what type of diet participants ate, then followed up to
find out how many of those participants had died and how.
Vegetarians in the study experienced 12% fewer deaths
over the period. Dietary choices appeared to play a big
role in protecting the participants from heart disease,
from which vegetarians were 19% less likely to die than
meat-eaters. There also appeared to be fewer deaths in
the vegetarian group from diabetes and kidney failure.

WSJ's Shirley Wang reports on a new study showing that
eating plant-based fat and proteins such as peanuts and
soy milk is far more effective in lowering bad
cholesterol than a diet low in saturated fats. Also
researchers don't know why a plant-based diet seems to
have a protective effect, but one likely reason is the
nutrient profile of vegetarian diets, which tend to be
higher in fiber and lower in saturated fat. Vegetarians
tend to be thinner, another factor known to have an
effect on health outcomes, Dr. Orlich says.

Loma Linda University is a Seventh-day Adventist
institution specializing in health care. The church
recommends a diet with "generous use of whole-grain
breads, cereals and pastas, a liberal use of fresh
vegetables and fruits, a moderate use of legumes, nuts
and seeds," according to a statement on its website. The
study published Monday was funded by the National
Institutes of Health. When adopting a vegetarian
lifestyle, nutritionists recommend watching closely to
make sure the intake of key nutrients is sufficient.
These include iron and zinc, frequently found in meat,
and calcium and vitamin B12. Roughly 5% of Americans
consider themselves to be vegetarians, according to a
survey published last year by Gallup.
