Having a meatless day, even once a week can have dramatic effects on your health. It can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and certain types of cancers.

Sausage, luncheon meats and other processed meats also increased the risk. Those who ate mostly poultry or fish had a lower risk of death.
