In brief: Balanced, low carb

Research shows that vegetarians have significantly lower risks of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure as well as alzheimer's disease.
There is even evidence that vegetarians are less prone to depression. Avoiding these conditions is likely to lead to a long & healthy life! see www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/20515497 & www.Sciencedaily.Com/releases/2009/07/090701103002.Htm.
