WASHINGTON: It might be time to replace chicken with veggies! According to a new study, vegetarians – especially men – have a longer lifespan than those who eat meat.

Researchers from the Loma Linda University in California found that vegetarian Adventist men live to an average of 83.3 years and vegetarian women 85.7 years – 9.5 and 6.1 years, respectively, longer than other Californians, the Huffington Post reported. In the ’70s and ’80s, a series of studies from the university, which has tracked tens of thousands of Seventh-day Adventists since 1958, were the first to show that vegetarians live longer than meat eaters.
