Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
On November 21, 2012, Quorn Foods, Inc. releases a statement in response to an Examiner article by Denise Reynolds about ways vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters.
According to the Examiner article, “A very large international study has found that vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters.” The article states that the Adventist Health Study has tracked tens of thousands of people since the 50’s and concluded that limiting your meat intake can help prevent life shortening diseases. The article mentioned that vegetarian men and women are averaging a life span of 83-85 years old, between 6 and 9 years longer than non-vegetarians.
Some areas the article suggests vegetarians are at a lower risk of include obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. According to the article, “Those who eat vegetarian foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and whole grains have fewer risk factors for heart disease, the number one killer of both men and women in the United States.” The article even states that a vegetarian lifestyle may protect you from cancer due to the high amount of antioxidants in the healthy food consumed by vegetarians.
Quorn Foods Inc. was pleased to learn of the positive results found in the study. “It is wonderful news to hear of the long-term health benefits of being a vegetarian,” says Quorn representative David Wilson. “For those who love to eat meat and are worried about their health benefits, Quorn offers a delicious meat alternative that has an ability to replicate the taste and texture of meat exceptionally well while benefiting your health. Quorn’s flavorful products can be used in your favorite recipes to create great tasting meals. Our products, while healthy, don’t compromise taste and we’re certain that our savory meals will leave you hungry for more.”
Quorn launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein that replicates the taste and texture of meat while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories than meat substitutes. Quorn offers a wide range of products including ready to serve meals, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
