The reason why this may be true is because most vegatarians become a vegetarian because others are doing it. Most don't do research to find out what foods have the same vitamins/nutrients that meat has, but it is possible for a vegetarian to be as healthy as a regular people. Also, don't smoke, it's bad for you and the environment.
Yeah sure...mi don't smoke and don't plan to. But why do you think humans were born omnivores? Meat is a vVERY important food for us. And if you are vegetarian cause u love animals SO much why do you eat THEIR food. Eat rocks then. Learn science/about the food chain dude.
Who the heck said I was a vegetarian?! Animals don't eat rocks! Now you're just spouting nonsense. Meat does have a lot of nutrients important for humans, but all of those nutrients can be found in other sources. Vegetarians must eat specific foods to get the nutrients they lack from not eating meat. Humans are born omnivores not carnivores. We CAN eat meat, but we don't HAVE to. At any rate, why does anyone care what someone else does for their personal choices? It's their business and if they don't want to eat meat they don't have to and if someone does want to eat meat then who cares?!
I did not say animals eat rocks. I said if u love them so much don't eat their food eat rocks instead. Also I said IF you are a vegan. Not that u actually r. But sorry I didn't mean t sound rude. I'm sorry if I said it in a harsh way :c
Because people don't do it correctly. Becoming a vegetarian without doing your research can cause you to lose a lot of essential nutrients, which is more deadly than tobacco and the carcinogens involved in cigarettes.
"A huge danger of a vegan diet is malnutrition .... A vegan diet is very low vitamin B12, a nutrient found mostly in animal products"
"Vegans try to supplement this vitamin or drink fortified soy milk. Soy, when drank in quantities to fill nutrient gaps in diets .... can lead to cancer"
"In addition to the ever-growing list of soy health risks, it has a solid foundation with tofu in vegan diets, and can interrupt thyroid function"
"Iron deficiency & omega-3 deficiency will also occur with an unmonitored vegan diet"
Granted, these are all issues that we see in unmonitored vegetarians and vegans, meaning they have no doctor guiding their diet and teaching them how to be a proper vegetarian or vegan. Most people, however, do not visit a physician and learn proper vegetarianism. This is why statistics are so frightening and why smokers are healthier.

You guys know that we get most of our protein from meat, and you can't get as much from vegetation. And we need protein to rebuild our bodies, grow our hair, repair damaged muscle and makes us stronger.
Just for some of you guys who should think about this.
It's true vegetarians can lead very healthy lives, just some take it too far and eat only salads and such. Seriously guys, you need more than veggies. Eggs, peanuts, fruits, breads, etc. Something we all need to be healthy. And I hate when people become vegetarians to SAVE THE ANIMULS because it won't. It just won't. It's one thing to be a vegetarian because you don't like meat (I have several friends like that) it's another to be an ignorant vegetarian.
I love your gallery but this is not true. Please, get your facts straight before making such thing. Being a vegetarian in a proper way is healthy. Being smoker is NEVER healthy and it affects other people too, which is even worse.
No, it's not. Vegetarians can be way more healthy than normal person, and smoker, of course. But if you count people who aren't real vegetarians: they just remove meat and don't change their diet, then you are right, but it's not real vegetarianism. Do some research before commenting...
This would depend on what you would define as "Healthier". If you are talking about death-rate statistics or immune system strength, then you are right. If you are talking about chance of getting a cancer associated with the respiratory system or addictions that hurt your wallet and therefore your ability to pay for necessary expenses then you are wrong.
If you feel strongly about this, I recommend backing it up with statistics. "There is nothing more detrimental to an opinion than a fact. There is no greater fact than a number."
