    Men and women who replaced 3% of their animal protein intake (from red meat, fish, chicken, dairy, eggs) with plant protein were 10% less likely to die during a 26-32 year follow-up according to data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.

    “Major food contributors to plant protein included bread, cereals, pasta, nuts, beans, and legumes,” the paper notes.
