    Study: Vegetarians Live Longer

These easy-to-use appliances keep food fresh three to five times longer and prevent freezer burn by removing air from special bags and containers, then keeping it out. (PRNewsFoto/Tilia)

In addition to the heart disease figure, 12 percent fewer vegetarians died overall. They also experienced a lower incidence of diabetes and kidney failure. Bring on the greens!
