Good for you, that is a very good thesis. You could even say they are "as healthy, if not healthier..." Most vegetarians ARE healthier than omnivores. Vegetarians do not require "tons of vitamins" to be healthy. To ensure complete nutrition they can take supplements,but a vegetarian can certainly be 'just as healthy' by diet alone. I suggest B12 or a whey protein supplement if you do want to talk about supplements, but it can be achieved through a healthy diet alone. First, most meat eaters get too much protein (hello- obesity!) and the countries with the most longevity (people living for a long time) are vegetarian or eat very little meat and have diets based around more vegetables etc.

Here are some statistics on why vegetarians are not only as healthy, but healthier. Vegetarians on average eat MUCH less fast food -greasy burgers, fried chicken nuggets etc. and eat more vegetables, healthy greens and home-cooked food, which is much healthier than store bought, processed or restau ...more

A healthy body is useless without a healthy mind.
A healthy mind will not opt for non vegetarian.
An unhealthy mind will vote not useful for this.
All vegetarians are not healthy in mind.
All non vegetarians are not unhealthy in mind.

A predominantly vegetarian food with occasional indulgence in non-vegetarian food according to the age and activity of the person concerned is best ! Our body is suited for that kind of food habit. And remember u can be 100% vegetarian and remain healthy, but not 100% non-vegeterian !

The term "vegetarian" is really a misnomer, since vegetarians eat more than just vegetables. Vegetarian simply means a plant-based diet. There are several kinds of vegetarian diets, defined by what types of foods are consumed.
Vegetarian or non-vegetarian, the decision depends on various factors such as cultural or dietary habits of the family, personal preference, taste and avoidance of certain foods for health reasons. Whatever the case, a well-balanced diet supplying proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals should be taken.

Both are having their own advantages and disadvantages as well,

In olden days Vegetarian was considered as more healthy, as thy used to grow them naturally with natural fertilisers and which will be having excellent health benefits, where as now a days most of the fertilizer is being grown with contaminated / with waste water, todays vegetable carries lot of bacteria and unwanted and unhealthy ingredients, so one should wash them thorughly 3-4 times to get rid of those things, while doing that we are loosing some essential helathy ingreidents also, so Vegeterian is no more enjoying healthy status anymore.

Coming NOn vegetarian it is also healthy if u consume moderately and within limit with once or twice a week, Fish especially having very good nutrients for brain, Eggs are absolutely healthy for developing kids and the same has been on TV ads as well, Red meat to be avaoided which is unhealthy in its all forms.
