A new report from the Medical University of Graz in Austria presents evidence that the “vegetarian” lifestyle is actually dangerous. The study found that purely vegetarian diets lead to poorer general health and a diminished quality of life marred by both physical and mental problems.
In spite of the vegetarian tendency to smoke less if at all, have higher socioeconomic achievement, eat less fat, get more exercise, eat more veggies and fruits, and drink less alcohol, they do not have a better lifestyle by objective standards.
Vegetarians suffer from higher rates of cancer, are twice as likely to be plagued with allergies, and suffer mental health problems.
They suffer heart attacks and cancer at a fifty percent higher rate than meat eaters.
The survey also established that meat eaters have higher Body Mass Indices (BMI) and consume higher levels of alcohol. Both of these finds suggest that BMI and alcohol usage might not be as significant to predicting individual lifespans as previously thought.
Of particular interest to those of us not afflicted with vegetarianism is the report’s observation that “Vegetarians reported higher levels of impairment from disorders, chronic diseases, and ‘suffer significantly more often from anxiety/depression.’” We can understand this because empirical observation makes the connection between vegetarianism and liberalism clear. Liberalism is a mental disorder, so why shouldn’t these things go together?
Contrary to the façade they present to the rest of us, vegetarians were also found to contribute to their own poor health by avoiding vaccinations and other normal medical preventative measures.
The survey concluded, “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.”
Are you listening, liberals? This is just another lie from your camp that has been debunked. If you want to live a longer, healthier life, stop redesigning the human body and live as nature intended you to live.
