Vegetarians are unhealthier, more mentally disturbed than meat-lovers

Yummy meat

Anyone who eats meat already knows this.

It’s no secret that many vegetarians are also radical environmentalists and climate alarmists who are obsessed and hysterical about the planet burning up. Perhaps the University of Graz in Austria has discovered one reason why: their “unhealthy” diet.

A new University of Graz study concludes that vegetarians are more often ill and have a lower quality of living than meat-eaters. According to the German press release, vegetarians “have cancer and heart attacks more often”. The release also says that they show more psychological disorders than meat eaters. Consequently, the report writes, they are a greater burden on the health care system.  

According to the press release the scientists evaluated data from the Austrian Health Interview Survey (AT-HIS), which is also part of an important and valuable EU survey (European Health Interview Survey).

The scientists examined a total of 1320 persons who were divided up into 4 groups of 330 persons each. All groups were comparable with respect to gender, age, and socio-economic status. The study also accounted for smoking and physical activity. Also the BMI was within the normal range for all four groups (22.9 – 24.9). The only thing that really was different among the four groups was the diet. The four groups were: 1) vegetarians, 2) meat-eaters with lots of fruit and veggies, 3) little meat-eaters and 4) big meat-eaters. More than three quarters of the participants were women (76.4%).

I always suspected vegetarians were nuts…now it is confirmed.

The press release states that the results contradict the common cliché that meat-free diets are healthier. Vegetarians have twice as many allergies as big meat-eaters do (30.6% to 16.7%) and they showed 166% higher cancer rates (4.8% to 1.8%). Moreover the scientists found that vegans had a 150% higher rate of heart attacks (1.5% to 0.6%). In total the scientists looked at 18 different chronic illnesses. Compared to the big meat-eaters, vegetarians were hit harder in 14 of the 18 illnesses (78%) which included asthma, diabetes, migraines and osteoporosis [1, p.4, Table 3].

The Medical University of Graz confirms the findings of the University of Hildesheim: More frequent psychological disorders among vegetarians, the press release states.

That’s it; no more veges for me.

    Yesterday my home kill guy came. He killed 2 of my Lowline angus steers. I spent the afternoon rendering down the stomach fat to make Beef dripping (for the vegetable O roasties), I just get depressed thinking about being a vegetarian!

    Had a boss once that went vegetarian for a long time. He often complained about being tired. Then one night when the staff were at the pub with him, one of them said; “what you need is a bloody big steak”. and that’s exactly what he did, and never looked back.

    To be honest I really like making beans and lentil dishes. They taste delicious. We probably eat them 2-3 times a week (chickpeas, lentils, dal, beans in various forms). But I also raise animals to eat. Two fat lambs going into the freezer on Monday. Give them another nice day in the paddock tomorrow.
