In Australia, vegetarians and vegans can access discounts and refunds on insurance policies. Those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet have a longer life, a better state of health and a lower environmental impact than those who follow a conventional diet. Now those who eat veg will have an additional advantage in Australia: they will be able to access subsidized insurance policies.

The insurance company Make A Difference Insurance decided to offer one saccount up to 20% on insurance premiums for vegetarians or vegans. Brian Jones, company director, said that we have available today scientific evidence more and more frequent that confirm that vegetarians and vegans have better health and a lower risk of being affected by diseases such as heart attack, stroke, hypertension, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes and kidney problems.

He therefore added that insurance premiums are calculated on the basis of several factors, including family medical history, lo lifestyle, smoking and alcohol consumption; therefore, in his opinion, even a vegetarian or vegan diet should be taken into careful consideration. The Australian insurance company offers vegetarians and vegans discounts which may vary between the 300 and 675 dollars.

There was no lack of it some controversy to about. According to some, many people would be willing to declare themselves vegetarian or vegan even if it is not, only to receive a discount. According to others, even vegetarians or vegans may face health risks if they continue to consume packaged foods and potato chips.

There are those who also point out that the risk of death for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores it would be equal, considering all the possible causes of death, including accidents. Bottom line, Australian vegetarians and vegans will certainly be happy with the facility, but perhaps the eating habits in depth for each subject, in order to evaluate reducing the risk of death and insurance premiums in an equitable manner.
