    What are the benefits of a vegetarian diet?

    A vegetarian diet is generally lower in fat and sodium because of a higher intake of fruits and vegetables. Plus that means it has more fiber, which is better for the body. However, some vegetarians fall back on carbohydrates too much, which tends to negate the benefits of abandoning meat and dairy. There is also some evidence to suggest that meat products are directly linked with serious diseases, not the least of which is cancer. The documentary 'Forks over Knives' makes a very convincing argument about giving up meat and dairy.

    They are endless, because meat is actually cancer-forming (check out "The China Study" by Colin Campbell and Thomas Campbell).

    We tend to eat a diet too acid-forming, and this causes all sorts of problems in the body. Meat is also acidic in the body - that's just one point. Also, the meat we eat is rarely organic, meaning natural. Rather, farmers pump chemicals into meat that are toxic to the body and wreak havoc, causing all sorts of issues.

    And we really only need the protein found in fruits and veggies and raw nuts/seeds.
