Are there more vegetarians than meat lovers? #Infographic

Recently a survey was conducted by the World Health Organization where they found that plant-based eating is more common than meat. More than 52 per cent of Americans actually claimed to be vegetarian. The WHO also states that from 2014 to 2017, the number of vegetarians rose by 600 per cent.

Reason: Research shows that greens are battling many diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. The plant eaters are able to consume more protein, vitamin C and E, magnesium, potassium, and folate than meat eaters, according to scientists.

The vegetarians also said that shifting their diet from meat-based to plant has improved their work productivity and made them feel better. Growing concern about ethical and environmental concerns has also led many Americans to change their dietary demands.

Although they are reluctant to give up meat entirely, the non-vegetarians do approve of the advantages with the plant-eaters. In particular, the millennials who are more concerned about their wellbeing have significantly limited their meat intake to reap some benefit.

The increasing demand for vegetarian products has also forced many fast-food giants to reconsider their menus. It includes Burger King, TGI Friday's, KFC, and White Castle who are incorporating meat alternatives to their menus (or will be soon).

Including vegetables, preference has also increased among Americans for non-dairy alternatives. The Americans now drink less milk than ever, and demand for substitute milk has risen by 61%. The plant-based food and drink industry has also expanded more than 268 per cent since 2012, according to the report.
