The link between daily consumption of red meat and mortality was also statistically significant, although less so than in the case of processed meat.

Results differed somewhat for Americans and Europeans. Indeed, in one study, unprocessed red meat increased all-cause mortality in the American cohort, but not the European cohort.

The researchers observed a 3.6-year increase in life expectancy for those on a vegetarian diet − which included fish, eggs or milk − for more than 17 years, as compared to shorter-term vegetarians.
