Many doctors and health experts of the world support vegetarian diet. Due to this, the level of blood pressure and cholesterol in the body remains normal. This diet keeps many serious diseases like hypertension, obesity and type-2 diabetes away.

Today is World Vegetarian Day, on this occasion, let us know about a research that compares the risk of cancer in non-vegetarians to that of vegetarians. It has recently been published in the journal BMC Medicine by the World Cancer Research Fund, Cancer Research UK and Oxford Population Health.

Research on 4 lakh 72 thousand people
4 lakh 72 thousand people were included in the research. Their diet data were taken from UK Biobank. People who eat meat and fish were divided into different categories. The diet pattern of these people was followed for 11.4 years.

In the first group, there were people who ate non-veg for 5 or more days a week. These people used to eat all kinds of non-veg, from red meat to chicken. The second group consisted of people who ate meat five or fewer days a week. The third group was placed in those who were pescatarians, that is, only fish eaters. In the fourth and last group, such vegetarians were kept, who had never eaten non-veg.

health damage from non veg
Scientists found that the risk of any cancer was reduced by 2% in those who ate less non-veg compared to those who ate regular non-veg. The risk is 10% lower in pescatarians and 14% lower in vegetarians.

The risk of colon cancer was also found to be 9% lower in those who ate less meat. Vegetarian women were found to have an 18% lower risk of breast cancer after menopause. The reason for this can also be considered as normal weight. The risk of prostate cancer was found to be 20% lower in pescatarians and 31% lower in vegetarians compared to non-vegetarians.

What do experts say?
Talking to The Indian Express, Dr. Ayan Basu said – Vegetarian diet reduces the risk of colorectal cancer by 22%. Also, it reduces the overall risk of getting any cancer by 10 to 12%. Therefore, vegetarian diet is considered good for better health.

FSSAI also supports plant based diet

The Food and Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) also tweeted a photo some time back and informed about the benefits of eating vegetarian.
