Vegetarians who eat fish, who are referred to as pescovegetarians, were 19% less likely to die over 5.8 years than non-vegetarians according to the Adventist Health Study-2.
Interestingly, vegetarians who eat fish had a lower risk of dying during the 5.8 year follow-up than all other groups of vegetarians (19% lower risk of dying for vegetarians who eat fish versus a 15% lower risk of dying for vegans versus a 9% lower risk for lacto-ovo vegetarians and a 8% lower risk for semi-vegetarians).
