Did we really need a study to know that this was the case? Did we not learn at some point during school that meat provides protein and calcium? Is this another piece of factual information we all learned in school that has gone by the way-side because the topic of EATING FOOD has become so politicized and many on the Left prefer the, frankly, self-destructive diet of veganism?
Maybe, but people’s desire to change the meaning of words or erase factual evidence does not mean that they can actually change reality. The reality is that there is no man-made climate change, just a natural one. The reality is that people can only be male or female because of XY and XX chromosomes, respectively. And the reality is that meat carries protein and calcium, as well as other things which help people to grow stronger.
And yet, it seemingly is necessary that a study be published to recognize that fact (and it still will be pushed back by those who do not find such facts to be comfortable or agreeable).
A recent Oxford University study finds that vegans are 43% more likely to suffer from bone fractures than do people who eat meat.
BMC Medicine published the research earlier this week, and the research itself was rather expansive, with researchers following 55,000 meat-eaters, vegetarians, pescatarians (people who eat fish), and vegans (different from vegetarians in that they will not consume any product which comes from animals, such as milk, cheese, eggs, etc.) for 18 years each, on average.
According to Breitbart News: “While vegetarians and pescatarians were 25 per cent more likely to suffer broken hips than meat-eaters, vegans were more than 2.3 times likely to experience the injury.”
The lead author of the study, Oxford’s Tammy Tong, pointed out the obvious, that this is a result of vegans receiving a lower intake of calcium and protein, and said: “We found that vegans had a higher risk of total fractures, which resulted in close to 20 more cases per 1,000 people over a ten-year period compared to people who ate meat.”
Breitbart News also points to another study, which was released earlier in November, by the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) in Berlin, Germany, which “found that one-third of vegans assessed had a ‘markedly lower’ amount of iodine, at levels that the World Health Organization (WHO) would consider a ‘severe deficiency.’”
Opinions about the dumpster fire of an organization that the WHO is aside, iodine deficiency is no joke. If that study is correct, one-third of vegans are at risk of damaging their thyroid gland, which needs iodine to make hormones, according to WebMD. Without enough iodine, the thyroid gland risks getting enlarged, and lower levels of thyroid hormones can be pretty bad for women, as it can cause them to stop ovulating.
“Iodine deficiency can also lead to an autoimmune disease of the thyroid and may increase the risk of getting thyroid cancer. Some researchers think that iodine deficiency might also increase the risk of other cancers such as prostate, breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancer.”
Another study from 2019 from Utrecht University in the Netherlands suggests that vegans are prone to suffer worse hangovers than do meat-eaters because of a lack of B3 and zinc in their diets, both of which are necessary for digesting alcohol.
To top it all off, research presented at a farmer’s union meeting back in February of 2020 suggested that “the production of non-meat foodstuffs like tofu may be worse for the environment, and not as healthy for individuals to consume,” according to Breitbart News.
The reason for it is that, according to The Rothamsted Institute’s Graham McAuliffe, tofu, because it’s entirely processed, requires “more energy going into its production” and “when you correct for the fact that the protein in it is not as digestible compared to the meat-based products, you can see that it could actually have a higher global warming potential than any of the monogastric animals… To get the same amount of protein, tofu is worse.”
Now, like I said, there is no man-made climate change and no evidence to support the idea that it’s real, so the production of tofu is not going to cause climate change any more than a car, a boat, a plane, or whatever else Leftist lunatics will blame for climate change. However, it’s important to note that vegans, who are usually Leftists, believe in man-made climate change and as such, would have to believe that the processing of tofu, if suggested by “scientists”, would lead to man-made climate change.
And as such, they reach an impasse. It doesn’t mean they would necessarily have to stop being vegan for that reason (though they should for all the other health concerns), but they would necessarily have to at least reconsider their consumption of tofu, since it oh, so clearly is a massive threat to the planet and humanity itself, apparently.
Again, not that there is any actual sane reason to believe that, but we are not exactly dealing with sane people. These people will believe it. Or, at least, you think they would.
If the “science” doesn’t conform to what they want it to say, even “science” which is in quotation marks (meaning the kind that Leftists usually use to try and coerce people into doing what they want them to do), they will largely ignore it or demand that it be changed. Why else do you think that it is considered a cardinal sin for climate scientists to at all be skeptical of the idea that mankind is causing climate change? Despite it only being natural for scientists to be skeptical of data and common knowledge, as it’s part of the scientific process to test and re-test just about everything, those who do honest research and come away with the conclusion that mankind is not causing climate change get hounded and harassed and threatened for not conforming to the Leftist dogma of using science as a political weapon.
Those who are skeptical of man-made climate change are considered “science-deniers”. This extends even to things like the Chinese coronavirus, which entirely expectedly was politicized as soon as it became convenient for tyrants. Anyone who shares anti-mask research is purported as being someone who wants to kill people’s grandmas. Meanwhile, actual grandma-killer Gov. Andrew Cuomo receives praise and prizes for his anti-scientific, irrational and deadly actions.
Similarly, for someone who is vegan, they won’t care to look at data which challenges their opinions and perspectives. Such people (Leftists in general, I mean) are extremely close-minded, and any semblance of evidence or fact which challenges their desired truth (which is no truth at all, since truth cannot be subjective) is dismissed at best and considered heresy at some of its worst.
But despite how much they may push back on such evidence, despite how much they may want the truth to be what they define it as opposed to what it is, despite how much they claim things are X instead of the reality of Y, they cannot change said reality.
They cannot change the absolute fact that mankind does not cause climate change. They cannot change the absolute fact that there are only two genders. They cannot change the absolute fact that people need protein and calcium (among other things) in their diets, which are largely absent in a vegan diet. They cannot change the fact that, as a result of such absence in nutrients, those who eat such diets are not as physically healthy as those who do not each such lackluster diets.
The problem, however, comes in the fact that Leftists demand others think the way they do. It doesn’t really matter to them that mankind cannot cause climate change – they DEMAND that others believe we do. It doesn’t matter that there are only two genders – they DEMAND that others believe there are more. It doesn’t matter that vegan diets are, of course, bad for people – they DEMAND that others believe it is good.
More than that, they demand that others subscribe to the same diet. Vegan activists, for a long while now, have sought to tax meat consumption, have campaigned to make being vegan a “protected characteristic” akin to race, sex, religion, etc., and have demanded civil rights akin to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 insofar as they want protection from discrimination in the workplace, and have even met some amount of success.
Despite the risks of a vegan diet, they demand others subscribe to it. Remember what I said about iodine deficiency? Well, it also affects pregnant women, as it can lead to high blood pressure for the mother and mental retardation for the baby. This, obviously, causes generational problems. Not that vegans will care. Not that Leftists care about the destructive effects of their demands and goals.
For crying out loud, they demand the same brands of communism that the Soviet Union had, that China has, that Cuba has, etc. and think that people who lived/live in those countries ARE BETTER OFF as a result of communism. These are not exactly rational people we are dealing with.
But again, despite what they claim, despite what they want, the reality is as it is. They cannot change that because they are not God.
Those who choose to have a vegan diet do great harm to themselves. Not necessarily immediately, and they won’t always show it, but if the research is remotely correct, they unnecessarily increase their risk for injuries and other health risks as well.
Again, it’s not surprising that such a result is the case, but plenty of people refuse to see reality for what it is.
