It’s official! Vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters: Study
Researchers from the Loma Linda University in California found that vegetarian Adventist men live to an average of 83.3 years and vegetarian women 85.7 years – 9.5 and 6.1 years, respectively, longer than other Californians, the Huffington Post reported.
In the ‘70s and ‘80s, a series of studies from the university, which has tracked tens of thousands of Seventh-day Adventists since 1958, were the first to show that vegetarians live longer than meat eaters.
Seventh-day Adventists have long been known as advocates of a vegetarian diet.
