Get Woke, Have a Stroke

Post by Fat Cat » Thu Sep 05, 2019 1:11 am

Plant-based diets 'linked to higher stroke risk'

Half of participants, recruited between 1993 and 2001, were meat-eaters, just over 16,000 vegetarian or vegan, with 7,500 who described themselves as pescetarian (fish-eating).

They were asked about their diets, when they joined the study and again in 2010. Medical history, smoking and physical activity were taken into account,

Altogether, there were 2,820 cases of coronary heart disease (CHD) and 1.072 cases of stroke - including 300 hemorrhagic strokes, which happen when a weakened blood vessel bursts and bleeds into the brain.

The pescetarians were found to have a 13% lower risk of CHD than the meat-eaters, while the vegetarians and vegans had a 22% lower risk.

But those on plant-based diets had a 20% higher risk of stroke. The researchers suggested this could be linked to low vitamin B12 levels but said more studies were needed to investigate the connection.

The venerable journalist forgot to mention that 75-80% of subjects in the study were women. Not to mention that 13%, 20% and 22% for questionnaire based studies are as good as zero.

Ignore.

"Meat-eaters don't necessarily have a varied diet, because they might live on meat and potatoes for dinner every night and not have any vegetables."

LMAO, these people write like all have TBIs. I assure you my diet is varied, as a meat eater I eat a different endangered species every night.

I should be a journalist. Here:

Probably won't have the desired effect Fats. We all know telling a teenage boy not to do something or he'll go blind won't stop him from doing it.

So far anecdotal reports of exclusive meat eaters overturn the idea that the diet has to be varied. Starting with Villjamur Stefansson, many have been on a very limited diet without any negative health effects. Supported by data from ethnic groups - Masai, Inuit for example.

Yes and no. Some monotonous diets may be perfectly healthy, others are not, as seen here by a diet of processed starch. In matters of diet, as in all things, there is a hierarchy.

No argument against that. Native examples are based on natural and minimally processed food.

This headline is misleading. While technically correct, you wouldn't call eating of Pringles and chips a typical vegan diet.

Having said that I tend to vary my diet as well. Can't eat eye fillet all the time, have to rotate between a fillet, sirloin, rump cap and other cuts.
