I was reading an article on AARP about a large study by Dr. J. Orlich MD and a number of others, confirming that eating a Vegetarian Diet can extend your projected lifespan.

It showed that avoiding Pork, Beef, and even Chicken can reduce early deaths by as much as 12 percent relative to non-vegetarians  And over the six year study, these people also had 19 percent fewer deaths from Heart disease.

Even if you add Seafood and Fish to your Vegetarian-style diet, you still have the same lower chance of early death. Eating these Vegetarian foods with the addition of Seafood’s is similar to a Mediterranean style diet and is in line with similar data on Mediterranean diets.

Interestingly, adding meats, regardless of whether you are a Vegetarian or not did not change the chancel of Cancer occurring.

As a Storyteller from the South, it was only natural that I turned to writing about the many fantastic things I have seen and experienced in my decades traveling in my RV. I love to write about what I see, with my favorite being; interesting and amazing places. Tiki Bars with character, Beautiful Sunsets as well as Interesting People and Great Conversations. I am a decent photographer, a terrible investor, and a good friend at those who get to know me.
I have written and published a number of books on Amazon!
