The life insurance industry in the United Kingdom has started to acknowledge the fact that the vegetarian diet has a positive impact on life expectancy and vegetarians are less likely to suffer from major illnesses.

Animal Friends Insurance, a not-for-profit insurance business, is offering up to 6 percent life insurance premium discount for those who forego meat. This is wonderful news for the millions of vegetarians and others in the country who want to choose a healthy lifestyle.

Medical evidence and studies suggest that non meat-eaters are up to 40 percent less likely to suffer from certain cancers and up to 30 percent from heart disease.
