Italy reporting increased number of vegetarians

Gorizia, August 21 - Approximately 6% of Italians have become vegetarians, a significant jump from the 4% reported one year ago, according to statistics released Wednesday. The figures were released just before a Vegetarian Festival beginning August 30 in Gorizia in north-eastern Italy. Many men report excluding animal protein from their diets for health reasons, according to the 2013 survey by EURISPES, a think-tank for political, social and economic studies. In contrast, almost 67% of women who say they are vegetarians cited animal welfare as the main reason they shun meat.
