There are several benefits to having a vegetarian diet. First of all, studies have shown that vegetarians tend to live longer. This is because they have a very low risk of becoming obese, developing cancer, cardiovascular problems and diabetes. Vegetarians also have better cholesterol levels. Because a vegetarian diet is generally higher in fiber and lower in fat, vegetarians are a lot less prone to diseases and other health issues than meat eaters. Despite the health benefits to being a vegetarian, it certainly doesn't mean that you have to compromise on taste.
