Meaty New Study Plunges 'Steak' into 'Vegetarians are Healthier' Lie

Tired of all those studies that claim that being a vegetarian is healthier/will save the environment or whatever? You're in luck, blessed carnivores, for Austria's Medical University of Graz has published a study concluding that vegetarians in fact are less healthy and have a lower quality of life than us normals. #sorrynotsorry

Researchers came to this conclusion even after finding that vegetarians are more physically active, smoke and drink less, and have a lower body mass index than meat eaters.

Overall, vegetarians were found to be in a poorer state of health compared to other dietary groups. Vegetarians reported higher levels of impairment from disorders, chronic diseases, and "suffer significantly more often from anxiety/depression."

Subjects who consumed lower amounts of animal fat were also linked to poor health care practices, such as avoidance of vaccinations and a lack of preventive care.

Chronic problems associated with vegetarians and people eating carnivorous diets rich in fruits and vegetables were linked to more frequent visits to doctors, which the study authors suggest requires public health programs to reduce the health risk due to their nutritional factors.

Lest you think I'm taking too much stock in this study, researchers also caution that continuing studies need to be done to substantiate their findings. Perhaps American vegetarians somehow differ from Austrian ones thus making this study inapplicable to us.

But, whatever. Can somebody run a study that establish a relationship between vegetarianism and smugness?

Vegetarians Are Less Healthy and Have a Poorer Quality of Life than Meat-eaters


http://davidduke.com/vegetarians-les...f=pub-standard

Vegetarians are less healthy and have a poorer quality of life than meat-eaters, a new study from Austria has concluded.

The research from the Medical University of Graz found that vegetarians visit their doctors more often and are more prone to allergies; they have a 50% increased risk of both heart attacks and cancer; and more likely to develop depression and anxiety disorders.

According to a report in the UK’s Daily Mail, the research indicated that vegetarian diets are associated with poorer health and quality of life.

The research also revealed that people of high socioeconomic status are more likely to be vegetarian.

The research contradicts previous studies that have suggested red meat is linked to a range of health problems, including bowel cancer.

As a result, the researchers say more studies are needed to confirm their findings.

The researchers say: ‘Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment.

‘Therefore, a continued strong public health programme for Austria is required in order to reduce the health risk due to nutritional factors.’

Why can't these cornhole pushers keep their facts straight when their own Discovery Channel bleets out it was the red meat that evolutionarily evolved us to having bigger brains in the damn first place?

We evolved to eat meat. It's quite logical that vegetarians are less healthy - I've known a couple veggies and they usually take a lot of supplements, which means they simply aren't getting what they need from their diet.

Meat animals and laying hens are fed supplements. They would be unhealthy without these supplements and the farmer would not be able to sell them and make money. So you are getting your supps indirectly. The animals we consume here originated in Asia, mostly, and are not suited for life here, which is why they need supplemented diets.
