With so many different health ideas out on the market, it is hard to know where to turn. On any given day you can try the latest food craze or start one of many trendy new diets. Regardless of whether you decide to get caught up in all of the new food crazes or not, one thing is true – you are what you eat. A well balanced diet is always your best choice, and we would like to offer you 5 reasons why you may want to consider a vegetarian diet.

Fights Cancer
There are many studies available that have proven time and time again that a vegetarian diet will greatly reduce your risk of cancer. This is because a vegetarian diet has far less saturated fats in it and has far less carcinogenic compounds and hormones. Couple that with a diet that is far easier on your digestive system and you have a diet that will help prevent cancer.

Weight Loss
A vegetarian diet will also help you lose weight. Again, a vegetarian diet is far lower in saturated fats and far higher in fiber and other weight loss nutrients. A vegetarian diet is far easier to digest and fills you up faster. Both of these factors will help you lose weight and keep it off.

Longevity
A vegetarian diet will not only help reduce your chances of cancer and help you keep weight off, this type of diet will also lengthen your lifespan. Vegetarian diets provide all types of minerals, vitamins and other essential nutrients. These nutrients all have a positive effect on your health and will help you live a long and healthy life.

Less Toxic
A vegetarian diet is most definitely less toxic than a diet that is rich in meats. Unfortunately, most meat on the market today is full of hormones and antibiotics. Once these toxins are ingested, they can quickly cause all kinds of health problems. Choosing a vegetarian diet will help you bypass these toxins which can only lead to a healthier life.

Ethics
A vegetarian diet is also far more ethical. Unfortunately, many of the animals that find their way to your plate are mistreated. A vegetarian diet removes you from being a participant in this process. A vegetarian diet is a more compassionate and ethically correct lifestyle choice.
