[…] researchers revealed findings that vegetarians are 19 percent less likely to die of heart disease than meat-eaters. The study followed 73,308 members of the vegetarianism-promoting Seventh-Day Adventist Church for nearly six years, tracking what kind of diet each member ate, as well as how many participants died during the study and how. In addition to the heart disease figure, 12 percent fewer vegetarians died overall. They also experienced a lower incidence of diabetes and kidney failure. (source)
