Hello,
I am a student in my final year writing a dissertation becoming a vegetarian/ vegan and how it relates to health. I am looking into how it affects individual people and have devised a survey to do this.
If possible, please spare from 1 to 5 minutes to complete it. It would be very helpful.
Thank you.

Anonymous, self-reported health surveys are really not accurate; people can embellish or fabricate information about their diets and health status.

If you are looking for well-substantiated studies on the health of vegetarians vs. omnivores, there are 2 very large such studies: the EPIC Oxford Study (UK) and the Adventist Health Study (USA). The EPIC Oxford Study included over 65,000 people (vegetarian + omnivore): http://www.epic-oxford.org/ . The Adventist Health Study included over 60,000 people (vegetarian + omnivore): https://publichealth.llu.edu/advent...udies/adventist-health-study-1-gathering-data

The results of the EPIC Oxford Study and the Adventist Health Study (and the currently-underway Adventist Health Study 2) are widely published in peer-reviewed science journals, such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the Diabetes Journal, the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine, and many others.

Here are examples of peer-reviewed reports from these major studies. There are many dozens of such reports.
