Vegetarians are at risk of allergies and cancer

Are all vegetarians healthy, long-lived, and happy? Probably not.

An Austrian survey, that is published in “PLos One”, revealed that people who do not eat meat suffer a greater risk of allergies, mental problems, and even cancer, compared to those who eat animal protein within a balanced diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables.

Austrian scientists proved – vegetarians are less healthy and more in need of medical care. The quality of their life is lowered due to an unbalanced diet.

Scientists observed the health of 1320 people in the course of this study.

According to the research, vegetarians suffer from anxiety, depression and allergies more frequently. They have a 50 times higher risk of heart attack or cancer.

Such is the conclusion reached by a research team from the University of Graz, Austria.
