On April 18, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle, responds to an article published on Seacoast Online regarding two different studies which prove that being on a vegetarian diet can boost quality and length of life.
According to the Seacoast Online article, a study by Dr. Stanley Hazen of the Cleveland Clinic showed that carnitine, an amino acid found in meat products, is also a major factor in heart failure.
The article goes on to mention another study from Oxford University. After studying 45,000 people, the results concluded that vegetarians were 32 percent less likely to suffer from a heart attack, than those people who ate meat and fish.
An additional study regarding the consumption of meat by Harvard University was mentioned in the article as well. The results found that after observing 37,698 men and 83,644 women, that meat consumption can raise the total hear and cancer mortality rate.
Yumi Media representative Justin Maas commented on the article by saying, “More of these types of studies are coming out every year and they should be encouraging people to make the switch to a vegetarian diet. Quorn can easily be used to replace meat in a regular diet, and it has great health benefits. If you’ve been considering trying a vegetarian diet, now is the best time to start.”
