Australians Getting Vegetarian with time

As per a new research, which has been published in the Medical Journal of Australia, it has been revealed that people, who follow a vegetarian diet, have less chances to suffer from heart disease.

The research was taken out by a group of Australian as well as international researchers. They said that they have proof that vegetarian diet helps in reducing the chance of colorectal cancer, type-2 diabetes and also helps in keeping obesity at bay.

Nutritionist Rosemary Stanton said, “As long as you've had a variety of plant-based foods over the course of a day or so, your body will take the amino acids”. However, the research findings have been not accepted by the Meat and Livestock Australia.

They were of the view that there is no single evidence that can show that Australians are turning vegetarian. Non-vegetarian dishes made of lamb and beef are not only rich in nutrients, but are relished by most Australians as well.

It is a source of vital nutrients, like iron, zinc, omega-3 and b vitamins. Tara Diversi, who is a lecturer in nutrition at the University of Sydney, said that eating preferences of Australians have been changing a lot.

Earlier, they were eating a lot of non-vegetarian items, but now they have been swearing by the vegetarian food.
