Vegetarians less likely to get heart disease

Tell your friends you're swapping beef for broccoli, pork for pumpkin and lamb for legumes, and it's likely they will try to warn you off.

Giving up meat, they'll argue, means you won't get enough protein (needed for growth and immunity), or iron, or calcium, or zinc. And you'll be stuck with eating tofu for protein.

But with more Australians appearing to eat less meat, new research shows that a well-planned plant-based diet has more health benefits than risks.
