Some Stats:

Vegetarians have lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Vegetarians have a greatly reduced chance of heart disease(science has found that mortality rates for vegans was 1/10th that of meat-eaters), obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, iron-deficiency, the E. Coli Virus, and many other diseases/illnesses.
The average person that eats meat consumes 10 times more protien than he/she needs.
A vegetarian diet can prevent 97 percent of coronary occlusions.

Protein: You can get lots of protien by eating whole grains in the form of oats, brown rice, and pasta; from nuts and seeds, including spreads such as tahini and peanut butter; and legumes, including tofu, lentils, and beans. Even so, North Americans suffer from too much protein, not too little. We get about 7 times more protein than we need!
Calcium: Cornbread, broccoli, kale, tofu, dried figs, tahini, great northern beans, and fortified orange juice and soy milk are all excellent sources of calcium.
Iron: Iron-rich foods such as raisins, almonds, dried apricots, blackstrap molasses and fortified grain cereals will meet the needs of most people.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D-enriched soy milk provides this nutrient without the added animal fat. A person who spends as little as 15 minutes a day playing in the sunshine, with arms and face exposed, will get sufficient vitamin D.
Fiber: Whole-wheat bread, brown rice, oats, and vegetables supply fiber, which helps lower cholesterol.
