Limited: Despite all the "pop" claims, the huge study in am. J. Clin. Nutr. 89: 1613s, 2009 found no different between british vegetarians and omnivores in any category when researchers control for the other healthy lifestyle habits of vegetarians. "the china study" is misleading subscience by a well-intentioned man misled during mao's famine. The moral benefits are substantial. Choose what's right for you.

The greatest "pro" is moral -- from what I know about factory farming, I find it more than a little troubling. Again, the choice is yours.
