A Vegetarian Diet Lowers Risk of Health Problems



A vegetarian diet is essential in preventing health risks, according to the Medical Journal of Australia.

Many fear a vegetarian diet depletes them of needed vitamins, but that is not the case. The study reveals a vegetarian diet provides an adequate amount of protein, iron and zinc.

Nutritionist Dr. Rosemary Stanton said a vegetarian diet could meet the nutritional needs of adults and children and prevent heart disease, colorectal cancer, type-2 diabetes and obesity.

A vegetarian diet may be a healthier alternative than rising popular diet veganism, a meal plan that rejects animal-based product, the study states.

Vegans are known to exhibit deficiencies in vitamin B12, a vitamin needed to make red bloods and keep nerves functioning.

If anyone is looking to lose weight and look great, a vegetarian diet may be the best option for you.
