Pescatarian- Primarily plant-based diet although pescatarians do eat fish and other aquatic life. Benefits Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and several forms of cancer. Frankie states, "A high-intake of plant-derived foods has been linked with a reduced risk of certain cancers" ( Phillips 156). Misconceptions: 1). Vegetarians do not get an adequate source of protein in their diets. 2). Vegetarians do not get the essential vitamins needed such as vitamin B12 and iron.3). Vegetarianism may not be safe for the elderly. Refutations 1). Frankie states, Protein intakes of vegetarians tend to be slightly lower than those of omnivoresbut are still adequate to support nitrogen balance in healthy adults (Phillips 138).2). Winston states, Dairy and eggs are good sources of vitamin B12 (Winston 614).3). Deriemaeker revealed that the vegetarian elderly individuals obtained a higher level of cholesterol, however, Deriemaker suggests that slightly higher cholesterol levels may even protect against infections and atherosclerosis (Deriemaeker 6).
