Are there more vegetarians than meat lovers? #Infographic

The World Health Organization recently conducted a survey where they found plant-based eating is more common than meat. In fact, over 52 per cent of Americans claimed to be vegetarian. The WHO also reports that the number of vegetarians grew 600 per cent between 2014 and 2017.

Reason: Research shows that greens fight a lot of diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. According to the scientists, plant eaters can consume more protein, vitamin C and E, magnesium, potassium, and folate than meat eaters.

The vegetarians also said shifting their diet from meat-based to plant has improved the productivity of their work and made them feel better. Increasing concern for ethics and the environment has also led many Americans to change their dietary demands.

Although they are reluctant to give up meat altogether, the non-vegetarians agree with the plant-eaters on the advantages. The millennials who are more concerned about their well-being have, in particular, significantly limited their meat intake to reap some benefit.

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

Including fruits, preference for non-dairy alternatives has also increased among Americans. Americans still consume less milk than ever, and demand for substitute milk has risen by 61%. As of 2012, according to the study, the plant-based food and drink industry has also grown more than 268 percent.
