Vegetarians indeed are much healthier and they live longer than meat eaters
Scientists found in recent studies that our early ancestors were vegetarians who ate no meat except during periods of crisis. It was only during the last Ice Age, some 26 to 36 millions years ago, when their normal diet of fruits, nuts, and vegetables was unavailable, that early humans had to start eating animal flesh in order to survive.
Unfortunately the custom of eating meat continued after the Ice Age, either by necessity (like the Eskimos and tribes in the far north), or due to habit and conditioning.
Ideally food preparations should combine the nutrition and art of a balanced diet.
Throughout history there have been individuals and societies that upheld the importance of being vegetarians for health, economic and spiritual reasons.
