Yale Study on Stamina and Vegetarianism (Guess Who Wins!)

A study was done at Yale, by Professor Irving Fisher, that compared the stamina and strength of meat-eaters against that of vegetarians. He selected meat-eating athletes, vegetarian athletes, and vegetarian sedentary subjects. He found that "Of the three groups compared, the ...flesh-eaters showed far less endurance than the abstainers (vegetarians), even when the latter were leading a sedentary life." Overall, the average score of the vegetarians was over double the average score of the meat-eaters, even though half of the vegetarians were sedentary people, while all of the meat-eaters were athletes.
