Scientists suggest vegetarian diet may be linked to depression

Post by Rashmun on Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:58 pm

There’s little debate about the fact that a plant-based diet is the healthiest around, both in terms of physical health and brain health. But a new study suggests that a vegetarian diet may, counterintuitively, be linked to depression. Though there are some limitations to the new research (namely, that it was in men only), there’s one reason that it may be right on: Vegetarians and vegans may be low on the vitamins, minerals and fatty acids that are essential to neurological function. So the study may at least be a good reminder to add back what you may be lacking, either with food or with supplement.

The authors, from the University of Bristol and the NIH, looked at data from 9,700 men in Britain—all were the husbands of pregnant women taking part in a long-term study on parent and child health. The men indicated whether they were vegetarian and vegan, and filled out questionnaires about the specific makeup of their typical diets.

Men who were vegetarian/vegan, of which there were only 350 total (the team lumped the two groups together, since there weren't many vegans), were more likely to have depression than non-vegetarians, and more likely to have a higher depression score. Even after adjustment for potential confounding variables (like family history, number of children, job status, and so on), the connection still held. There was also a slight connection between the number of years one had been vegetarian and the severity of one’s depression, but that link wasn’t statistically significant.

Eminent Moron,

Scientists also say that one will never die if you are last of Mughaliya Sultanat.

Moron,

The reason why you are an asshole is because you think someone who was a chicken farmer cannot grow or support other foods that is good for society.

Now, growing meat (keeping livestock) for consumption means feeding them as well. If people eat less meat then farmers don't have to grow meat (keeping livestock). Growing meat (keeping livestock) is bad for environment. 

OTOH, growing plants for foods is good for environment.

Got it, dickhead!

if "growing meat" is bad for the environment, and "growing plants" is good for the environment, why was Sadhguru "growing meat" and not "growing plants"? He was a chicken farmer for many years before he became a spiritual guru and started promoting vegetarianism.
