People who avoid meat consumption tend to have worse psychological health than those who eat meat, according to new research published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition. The study, which did not draw any conclusions about causation, found that vegetarians/vegans were at a greater risk of depression, anxiety, and self-harm.
I thought it smelt fishy...So when researching into the author Urska Dobersek, and the funding for the study I found this...
This study was funded in part via an unrestricted research grant from the Beef Checkoff, through the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. The sponsor of the study had no role in the study design, data collection, data analysis, data interpretation, or writing of the report.
Do you think there's some truth to it ?
Or is it just another meat association's beef with vegans & vegetarians for promoting a healthier meals with squeals diet ?
