It says more research is needed and that there are various limitations. There are probably studies which indicate the reverse because you can find a study to support anything.

Basically the same as the findings of meat eaters being at higher risk of certain diseases - it's all based on correlation which, as we all know, doesn't always equal causation.

Vegans and vegetarians would have 10 fewer cases of heart diseases but 3 more cases of stroke out of 1000. Its likely that it's related to the lack of vitamins in vegans and vegetarians.

In my opinion, it is still more likely that vegan and vegetarians diet are healthier. But for the life of me I'll never turn away from a meatarian. Rather a short than miserable life.

The study found vegans/vegetarians faced an increased absolute risk of around 0.3%.

That anyone would consider this newsworthy says a lot about their level scientific literacy.

Absolutely everything causes either cancer or heart disease according to the media, so does meat.

Rather a short and miserable life for the animals you exploit.

Not that vegans are miserable. Well, except me, but then I've always been miserable.

It was the same for the increase in bowel cancer risk from processed meats, which was an 80% increase on an initial 1% risk (so an absolute increase of 0.8%). People are easily frightened by risk for serious illnesses and not great with numbers.

The increased risk in meat eaters is also less than 1%, doesn't stop every militant vegan from posting countless links to back up their arguments.
