Is a vegetarian diet right for you?

Juicy hamburgers, Thanksgiving turkey and foot-long hot dogs are not on the menu for most vegetarians. Instead, they may opt for a fruit salad, spaghetti with tomato sauce or vegetable stir-fry. If that doesn't sound appetizing to you, this might be the icing on the cake: by focusing on plants for food, vegetarians generally live longer and bypass numerous major health problems that affect many Americans.
