I read a science article that linked vegetarian diets with mortality.

Three New Words: Hypertension- elevation of the blood pressure

Lacto-ovo-vegetarian- a vegetarian diet including dairy and egg products

Pesco-vegetarian- a vegetarian diet including seafood

2. Vegetarian men had a significant reduction in cardiovascular disease mortality and IHD death.  However, the results showed no changes in women.
