Vegetarianism is the practice of eating foods from the plant kingdom. There are several types of vegetarians. Semi-vegetarians avoid meat but eat poultry and other animal foods. Lacto- Ovo-vegetarians avoid poultry and fish as well as meat but do include milk and eggs in their diets. Some vegetarians practice veganism, eating no animal foods at all. More recently, people have adopted vegetarian diets based on scientific studies showing that diets high in fatty animal foods may contribute to the early development of the disease, including obesity, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and colorectal cancer. Doctors suggest that one should reduce the intake of animal fats, such as those found in meat and dairy products, and increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The vegetarian plant-based diet typically has the advantage of being low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and salt, but it can be lacking in other ways. Vegetarians need to plan their diets with special care in order to obtain the essential nutrients received from diets that include meat, fish, and poultry. Vegetarians need to eat other foods, such as fortified grains and cereals, that provide necessary nutrients like iron, zinc, vitamin D, and some B vitamins like B12 and B6. Vegetarians who avoid milk products must find alternatives that are high in calcium and vitamin D, such as fortified soy milk. Lacto-ovo-vegetarians can use eggs, milk, nuts, peanut butter, dry beans, peas, and lentils in place of choices from the meat group.
