Other evidence – the British study that vegetarians are 40 percent lower risk of dying from cancer and 20 percent less likely to die from other diseases. I have already wrote about this, but I repeat. In the valley Vilkabamba, which is one of the oases of longevity, mainly eating fruits and vegetables. Abkhaz-centenarians eat meat. Hungarian elders prefer to be vegetarians.
Azerbaijani centenarians like meat, and fat. Long-lived northern tundra to eat a huge number of deer fat. And all live more than 100 years. Gerontologists have long ago proved that the connection between diet and life expectancy is not. In addition, the overall longevity of the human population continues to grow. In the days of ancient European people lived on average 20 – 30 years in the 18th century – 28, 5 years, in the 19th century – more than 40, now Europe is on average lived for 80 years.
That is, since ancient times, life expectancy increased to 60 years. Is this service only for vegetarians? Life expectancy – a broad concept, it involves not only diet but also the level life, living conditions, hygiene, level of medical, scientific and technical progress, and much more. To isolate any one cause is simply impossible. Mite vegetarians in life, I fear, will be small, if only because the total mass of humanity is still a small layer. And the claim of longevity vegetarians against the overall life expectancy, in terms of scientific research, to put it mildly, incorrectly. And by the way, there are other import studies asserting diametrically opposite position on vegetarianism. Since English explorers Appleby, Key and associates found that the power plant products do not reduce cancer risk, as there is no difference in mortality between vegetarians and meat eaters.
