The vegetarian diet is thought to have health benefits including reductions in type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. [...] Key Method The 45 and Up Study is a cohort study of 267,180 men and women aged ≥45years in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Vegetarian diet status was assessed by baseline questionnaire and participants were categorized into complete vegetarians, semi-vegetarians (eat meat≤once/week), pesco-vegetarians and regular meat eaters.Expand
Vegetarian, pescatarian and flexitarian diets: sociodemographic determinants and association with cardiovascular risk factors in a Swiss urban population
TLDR
An increase in the prevalence of vegetarians is shown and it is suggested that the different vegetarian diets assessed are associated with a better cardiovascular risk profile. Expand

TLDR
A vegetarian diet, compared with a non-vegetarian diet, was associated with a reduced risk of ischemic heart disease mortality, whereas it had no effect on all-cause and cerebrovascular mortality. Expand
Plant-based dietary patterns are associated with lower body weight, BMI and waist circumference in older Australian women.
TLDR
BW, BMI and WC are lower in women following PBD and positively associated with increasing meat consumption, and results were robust to adjustment for confounders including physical activity levels, smoking status, habitual alcohol intake, use of supplements, and hormone replacement therapy. Expand
Vegetarian Diet Patterns and Chronic Disease Risk
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the evidence regarding vegetarian diet patterns and major chronic diseases, explore possible explanations for these relationships, and identify research gaps and opportunities to better define the health effects of vegetarian dietary patterns. Expand
Multiple Health Benefits and Minimal Risks Associated with Vegetarian Diets
TLDR
Compared to the Adventist Health Study, more recent vegetarian diet studies have demonstrated significant although smaller risk reductions for mortality in cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease. Expand

Background: The association between plant-based diets and cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains poorly characterized. Given that diet represents an important and a modifiable risk factor, this studyExpand
Sex differences in dietary consumption and its association with frailty among middle-aged and older Australians: a 10-year longitudinal survey
TLDR
M Males and females changed their dietary consumption as they age and these changes affect its association with frailty, particularly for females, and sex-specific dietary advice in prevention of frailty needs to be further developed. Expand

Vegetarians in this study generally showed healthier dietary intake and lower body fatness than the non-vegetarians, while no significant differences were observed in the mean intake for energy and carbohydrate. Expand
Healthy Plant-Based Diets Are Associated with Lower Risk of All-Cause Mortality in US Adults.
TLDR
Healthy plant-based diet scores above the median were associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality in US adults, and a nonlinear association between hPDI and all- cause mortality was observed. Expand

TLDR
Vegetarian diets are associated with lower all-cause mortality and with some reductions in cause-specific mortality, and appeared to be more robust in males. Expand
Lifestyle Determinants and Mortality in German Vegetarians and Health-Conscious Persons: Results of a 21-Year Follow-up
TLDR
Low prevalence of smoking and moderate or high level of physical activity but not strictly vegetarian diet was associated with reduced overall mortality, and the nonsignificant reduction in mortality from ischemic heart diseases in vegetarians compared with health-conscious persons could be explained in part by avoidance of meat intake. Expand

TLDR
Mortality from circulatory diseases and all causes is not significantly different between vegetarians and meat eaters, but the study is not large enough to exclude small or moderate differences for specific causes of death, and more research on this topic is required. Expand
