The effect of vegetarian diets is equal to one-third of the effect of taking daily medicines that maintain the health of the heart and blood vessels.

A long review of clinical data collected over four decades found that a diet based primarily on plant foods reduced the risk of heart attack.

Researchers in Denmark have found that a vegetarian diet or a diet free of dairy and eggs lowers blood cholesterol and cholesterol levels, which are responsible for an increased risk of heart attacks.

The effect of the vegetarian diet, which is about a third of the daily dose, is “really substantial,” they said.

But experts say meat and dairy products have their own health benefits, and not all meat-free diets are actually healthy.
