EarthIn a new study conducted at Loma Linda School of Health and published in the July 2014 edition of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that vegetarian diets not only prolong life, but reduce harmful “greenhouse gas” emissions by 32 percent – almost a third.The team discovered that mortality rates for vegetarians were close to 20 percent lower than those for non-vegetarians – a very significant statistical difference, and proof of the ability of plant-based diets to extend life. Even those who identified as “semi-vegetarian” enjoyed benefits, with mortality rates similar to those of strict vegetarians

Mortality rates for ALL humans is 100 percent. "Mortality rates 20 percent lower" is a strange phrase.

"Semi vegetarian" is also a strange phrase. Everyone should eat vegetables!
