Yumi Media Encourages Vegetarianism For Heart Health As Reported In the Independent Florida Alligator

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 11, 2013

On February 11, Yumi Media responds to an article published by the Independent Florida Alligator, which discusses how vegetarianism decreases the potential for heart disease.

According to the article published by the [The Independent Florida Alligator, vegetarians are 32 percent less likely to suffer from heart disease than meat eaters. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers at the University of Oxford discovered that vegetarians have a lower risk of developing and dying from heart disease because of their low cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

The article said the study analyzed over 44,000 participants with 34 percent being long-term vegetarians. A manager of a health food store in Alchua, Fla. said he’s been a vegetarian for more than 30 years. Eating less meat cuts down on fat intake, the article said. “A lot of the clogging of the arteries comes from meat-based proteins,” he said in the article.

In the article, a University of Florida student Lindsay Patenaude said she probably wouldn’t give up meat, despite its negative health properties. “There’s other ways to combat heart disease,” she said in the article. “I can exercise to keep my heart healthy. ”

Yumi Media said exercising is extremely important for your health, but sometimes it’s not enough to combat heart disease and other illnesses. Instead, Yumi Media said to add in more vegetables and maybe go meatless a few days of the week. “There are many options now for those who are unwilling to give up meat completely,” they said. “For instance, vegetarian company Quorn makes excellent meatless chicken nuggets and other products. They taste good and they can significantly reduce cholesterol levels.”
