Eating a plant-based diet comes with a lot of benefits: fewer health problems, lose a little weight, harm fewer animals, smaller carbon footprint, among other wonderful perks. But now, vegetarians in Australia may find themselves also enjoying cheaper life insurance rates.

Make A Difference Insurance in Cheltenham is offering discounts up to 20% off premiums for vegetarians.

“There is growing … evidence that suggests vegetarians have a lower risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease, hypertension, cancer, obesity, strokes, osteoporosis, diabetes and kidney disease,” said Brian Jones, managing director. “Life insurance premiums are calculated based on several factors, including family medical history, lifestyle choices such as alcohol and nicotine intake, so surely a vegetarian or vegan diet should be considered, too.”

Jones also highlighted statistics that a plant-based diet reduces the likelihood of some cancers and heart disease, and all those delicious vegetables have been known to decrease cholesterol. See what I mean about all those great perks?!
