    Vegetarians cut heart risk by 32%

    A study of 44,500 people in England and Scotland showed vegetarians were 32% less likely to die or need hospital treatment as a result of heart disease.

    Differences in cholesterol levels, blood pressure and body weight are thought to be behind the health boost....

    ....

    The results showed the vegetarians had lower blood pressure, lower levels of "bad" cholesterol and were more likely to have a healthy weight.

    Tracy Parker, from the British Heart Foundation, said: "This research reminds us that we should try to eat a balanced and varied diet - whether this includes meat or not.

    "But remember, choosing the veggie option on the menu is not a shortcut to a healthy heart. After all, there are still plenty of foods suitable for vegetarians that are high in saturated fat and salt.

    Did they make any distinction between the diets of people who eat meat? Regularly eating poultry, lean beef, and lean pork is quite a bit different than fatty hamburger, ribs, and T-bone steaks.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Going even further than Mr. D, I would like to see a distinction between those who eat grain fed meat v. those who eat grass fed meat. The balance of essential trans-fatty acids are very unhealthy in grain fed met- too much omega 6s to 3s. This causes inflammation, and heart disease.

    I can see vegetarians having less heart disease (that the grain feed meat eaters), but what about their overall health- with sometimes serious vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

    I wouldn't think it would really make THAT big of a difference with grass or grain fed. I'm sure there is probably some type of difference but not significant enough to make an impact on your health. I could be wrong.

    Oh sure. We actually agree for once.

    http://www.mercola.com/beef/health_benefits.htm

    Whereas cellular proteins are genetically determined, the polyunsaturated fatty acids composition of all cell membranes is to a great extent dependent on the dietary intake.
    There are many kinds of fats in the body. Some of the most crucial fats are in the list of compounds that make up the cell walls for all of the body's cells.
    After isolating these fats scientific experiments determined that if the ratio of omega 6 fats to omega 3 fats exceeds 4:1, people have more health problems. This is especially meaningful since grain-fed beef can have ratios that exceed 20:1 whereby grass-fed beef is down around 3:1.
    Similar ratios are also found in all grain-fed versus grass-fed livestock products.
    Grassfed products are rich in all the fats now proven to be health-enhancing, but low in the fats that have been linked with disease.
    If you want to read a comprehensive review of omega 3 fats along with 78 references to the clinical literature you can read Omega 3 Oils.
