  15. 15. What does that mean?<br />Confounders: vegetarianism and veganism usually go hand-in-hand with other health-promoting lifestyle changes, giving them an advantage in observational studies<br />
  16. 16. Religious Vegetarians <br />Buddhist vegetarian women in Taiwain have significantly increased C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and triglycerides<br />"Most western vegetarians include fresh vegetables and fruits as their main source of nutrition and energy, based on health benefits of the foods. In contrast, most Taiwanese vegetarians choose a vegetarian diet because of their Buddhist religion, which teaches a policy of “no killing” Buddhists in Taiwan have a dietary pattern similar to that of most Taiwanese in terms of meal pat-terns and cooking methods, except that they do not include any meat, fish, or poultry in their meals."<br />“Taiwanese Female Vegetarians Have Lower Lipoprotein-Associated Phospholipase A2 Compared with Omnivores” by Chih-Wei Chen, et al. in Yonsei Med J 52(1):13-19, 2011<br />

  18. 18. But what about the Adventists?<br />Vegetarian Adventists consume fewer “doughnuts, coffee, and eggs” than omnivore Adventists<br />Vegetarian Adventists tend to have similar health outcomes as Mormons, who are not vegetarian but do abstain from alcohol and drugs and have strong sense of community<br />
  19. 19. Top Secret Adventist Info<br />Recent re-analysis of the Adventist Health Studies show the fish eaters – not the vegans or vegetarians – have the lowest relative risk for all-cause mortality (0.78 versus 0.89 for lacto-ovo vegetarians)<br />
  20. 20. But what about the Adventists?<br />Study found that non-vegetarian Adventists eat more doughnuts, drink more coffee, and eat more eggs than the vegetarians<br />Researchers’ conclusion: “Among Seventh-day Adventists, vegetarians are healthier than nonvegetarians but this cannot be ascribed only to the absence of meat.”<br />“Associations between diet and cancer, ischemic heart disease, and all-cause mortality non-Hispanic white California Seventh-day Adventists” by Gary E. Fraser, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 70 No. 3<br />
  21. 21. But doesn’t animal protein melt your bones?<br />The argument: animal protein has high levels of sulfur-containing amino acids, which increase your body’s acid load<br />Animal protein associated with more calcium excreted in urine<br />Vegetarians cite this as evidence animal foods cause osteoporosis<br />
  22. 22. The boney truth<br />Animal protein is nearly always associated with greater bone density, especially in the elderly<br />Most recent meta analysis (55 studies) found no support for the “acid load and osteoporosis” theory<br />Vegetarians and vegans oftenhave lower BMD and higher fracture rates than omnivores<br />
  23. 23. Other Things<br />Evolution: yes, we’ve been eating meat for a really freakin’ long time<br />Our guts are not the same as herbivores, especially other primates: our colons shrunk and we (mostly) lost the ability to get energy from fiber<br />
  24. 24. Wanna talk ethics or environment?<br />Go to the website, which intelligently examines the ethical arguments for avoiding animal foods<br />Read “Meat: A Benign Extravagance” by Simon Fairlie for a balanced and in-depth examination of plant vs. animal foods on our resources and the environment<br />
