I saw this and assumed it was another report on this study, but no, it seems to be a whole different study, kind of the flip side of the one showing how damaging to the lungs are meat products like bacon and pastrami. In this case, the shocking results are that compared to a standard-diet control, as the headline puts it, Fruit, Vegetable-Rich Diet Halves Lung Disease Risk. It's that "Mediterranean" diet, which is, yes, fruit- and vegetable-rich, but includes fish. They apparently didn't bother with a cohort eating completely meatless. I'm betting the numbers, both in this study and the last one, would have been more dramatic if so.
