I too am a meat eater but it is a fact that a vegetarian diet is healthier for the human body than a diet that includes red meat.
Since we've got a little discussion going, I just want to add that what TYPE of red meat you eat decides if it is healthy or not.
Sure, ir you are buying the bulk pack of 20% fat ground beef, that's going to clog your arteries. But if you are eating grass-fed "organic" beef under 6% fat, how is that any less healthy than chicken or fish?
Yes, true, the vast majority of the population doesn't eat health grass-fed low-fat beef, and that's where the phrase "red meat causes high cholesterol etc etc) comes into play.
I've seen some people say they are eating healthy by choosing ground turkey over ground beef, when they have no idea that ground turkey can have 20%+ fat in it too.
For the record: I eat meat. Was raised on a farm so it's always been part of my lifestyle. Bottle-fed the spiker calves and pet them/name them, let them grow for 2 years, and then stick 'em in the freezer. Cycle of life, I guess you could say.
