    Vegetarians might have higher risk of stroke than meat eaters, study says

    Vegetarians might have higher risk of stroke than meat eaters, study says - CNN

    Non-meat diets have soared in popularity with many peopleditching beef, pork and chickenin pursuit of health and environmental benefits and concerns about animal welfare.

    However, a new study suggests that vegetarians and vegans may be at a higher risk of stroke than their meat-eating counterparts -- although those who don't eat meat have a lower chance of coronary heart disease, according to the new paper, published in the medical journal the BMJ on Wednesday.


    "It does seem that the lower risk of coronary heart diseases does exceed the higher risk of stroke, if we look at the absolute numbers," said lead researcher Tammy Tong, a nutritional epidemiologist at the Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford.


    This is the first study to look at the risk of stroke in vegetarians, said Tong. The research found that vegetarians and vegans had a 20% higher risk of stroke than meat-eaters, particularly hemorrhagic stroke -- caused when blood from an artery begins to bleed into the brain. This translates to 3 more cases of stroke per 1,000 people over 10 years.
    Damned if you do and damned if you dont I guess.

    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    You. You're sort of starting to act like MV with these threads, only not as annoying. No one is going to take your meat away, and who cares if someone makes different food choices?

    What? Please point out where Im even implying that I'm against vegetarianism? I posted an article and doing tongue in cheek comments.

    You may not know this but I do go vegetarian 2-4 days out of the week.
