There are many good reasons to go vegetarian. For men especially, changing to a vegetarian diet is a very good thing!
Up until the thirties, the death rate for men and women is approximately equal. Beyond the thirties, however, the death rate for men is greater than women at every age thereafter. Considering that vegetarians, both male and female, statistically live the longest, the absolute best thing that men can do to extend their lifespan is to adopt a vegetarian diet. And it's never too late to make a change.
As soon as meat is taken out of the diet, the body's arterial network begins to clean itself of cholesterol buildup, consequently reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and impotence. Indeed, many diabetics turned vegetarian have been able to cease taking diabetic medications. In regards to impotency, clogged arteries are the chief cause. And nothing clogs arteries more than meat.
Cutting out red meat from the diet is a good start toward reaching this end. However, to truly reap the health benefits of less cholesterol, taking all meat out of the diet, including chicken and fish, is necessary. It's also important to be weary of too much dairy products, such as ice cream - hence a good reason to go vegan.
In addition to all of the health benefits, vegetarianism makes people feel better too. Studies show that the more fiber in a man's diet, the less likely he is to be aggressive.
The reason being is that fiber, which is higher in a vegetarian diet, keeps testosterone levels from rising too high. A vegetarian diet also readjusts body chemistry by activating noradrenaline and thyroid, both of which stimulate metabolism. In other words, you will have more energy and will certainly shed some pounds if your body needs to. Seriously guys, going vegetarian is one of the wisest things you can do to make a change in your life.
