Vegan brain power

Vegans and vegetarians may be putting themselves at increased risk of mental health problems and dementia because important chemicals which protect the brain are mainly found in meat, fish and eggs, a nutritionist has suggested.

Explains so much,

  1. Explains so much

    Ah, but does it though? The mental health problem might predate and indeed trigger the veganism or vegetarianism.

  2. Chris – True.

    It’s like how some people blame SSRI’s for loonies in America shooting up movie theatres and whatnot.

    But if they were mentally well, they wouldn’t be on crazy pills in the first place.

    A not insignificant percentage of vegans are already cuckoo bananas before deciding to adopt the Hitler diet.

  3. “to think of animal products as unhealthy”: the politician who did most to push this absurd propaganda in the US and so eventually around the world was Senator George McGovern. (Codgers might remember him.)

    God knows how much harm the interfering ignoramus caused. His proposition was based on the research of the dishonest and megalomaniac medical scientist Ancel Keys.

    I sometimes wonder whether any “climate scientists” used the story as a model for their own preaching: Repent and atone, brothers, or ye will all burn in Hell.

    Mrs BiND was really pissed off this morning. She goes to a ladies group and they take it in turns to make cakes. However, there’s a vegan and a gluten free (not a Coeliac disease sufferer) so they have to bake for the lowest common denominator. This week vegan and gluten free didn’t turn up so not only did they have cakes that were like sawdust, they had extra to eat up.

    I said that when its her turn to bake she should tell vegan that she can’t guarantee her kitchen is vegan free and don’t tell gluten free that she’s cooked as normal.

    Agree. Better: lie to vegan too

    I have an elderly relative who claims to be allergic to shell fish.

    Her favourite meal in a restaurant/pub is

    wait for it

    Pcar,

    Funnily enough Mrs BiND is allergic time she’ll fish, and I’ve seen what it does, but she can also eat scampi, prawns and scallops.

    In her context she’ll fish refers to muscles and the like.

    Why doesn’t she (and all the sane ones) bake nice cakes, and do a small sawdust special for the snowflakes? If they don’t show up, the one that isn’t worth eating can go on the bird tables.

    That’s probably her case too, but she refuses to eat Prawns, Shrimp, Lobster… as “allergic”. Problem is we don’t know if pointing out Scampi is same would be beneficial – woman, old 80+, stubborn; consensus is say nothing.

    imo a lot of “allergies” now are “don’t like” or like vegans “I’m special”

    @BiW

    Agree

    Good wind-up of vegans:
