(UncoverCalifornia.com) – A new study by scientists from the Loma Linda University has revealed that vegetarians are at lower risk of developing colorectal cancer than non-vegetarians.

The study claimed that a vegetarian diet offers significant protection against cancers of the colon and rectum, which is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States after lung cancer.

The findings emerged from the university’s multimillion-dollar Adventist Health Study-2 investigation that links diet to specific forms of cancer.

The study led by Dr. Michael Orlich, a specialist in family and preventative medicine, also claimed that pescovegetarians or vegetarians who eat fish had a 43% lower risk of colon or rectal cancer than non-vegetarians.
