Is eating meat healthy for us or not? 

A large survey was done in Austrian population in 2006-2007 by the Medical University of Graz, Austria.

The conclusion were:

“Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy in terms of cancer, allergies,  have more mental disorders (anxiety and depression),  have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment.”

“Additionally, they have a poorer quality of life in terms of physical health, social relationships, and environmental factors.”

Although the study found vegetarians tend to have lower body mass indexes, be more physically active, drink less and smoke less frequently than meat eaters, they were 50 percent more likely to have a heart attack, 50 percent more likely to develop cancer, along with being twice as likely to develop allergies.

The survey was done on 1320 persons, with comparable ages and socio-economic status.

I personally believe that humans being omnivores (meaning they eat everything), we need to have animal proteins in our diet. There is no way around it. Even though the human body can adapt and survive on a vegetarian diet, it will however function better with animal proteins in order to attain better health.

Yours in health,
