    Why Are Vegetarians More Likely to Be Depressed Than Other People?

    Source: Drazen Zigic/Shutterstock There is a complex relationship between our mental health and what we eat. On the one hand, certain diets appear to increase the risk of developing a mental disorder. On the other hand, suffering from a mental disorder could lead to eating more or eating less, or eating different kinds of foods. One particularly mysterious association is that between depression and being a vegetarian. While some studies showed that vegetarians are more depressed than meat-eaters, others showed the exact opposite. A New Meta-Analysis on Vegetarianism and Depressed Mood To unravel this mystery, a German research team (which

    The Times’s Newsletter The Veggie Isn’t Just For Vegetarians

    It’s for anyone with an interest. But I have to admit, I especially love the idea of persuading people who think they’re not at all interested in vegetarian food that they are, that it’s delicious, that it’s approachable, that it’s very much for them. Was it always called The Veggie? One of the rejected names was Totally Herbaceous, which didn’t get far because it’s too long and very silly and no one liked it. We all immediately liked The Veggie — it just felt warm, friendly and inviting. And that idea came from Owen Dodd, an engineer who worked on

    Why vegetarians are winning the inflation battle

    Now is a great time to become a vegetarian. That’s because beef and pork-based foods are increasingly becoming more expensive. In June, Americans paid 4.5% more on the month for beef and veal and 3.1% more for pork, according to data from the Consumer Price Index published on Tuesday. Beef steaks, roasts, pork chops, ground beef and ham saw the largest price increases over the past month compared to May: 6%, 5%, 5%, 3.4% and 3.1%, respectively. In contrast, frozen vegetables and canned vegetables cost 1.2% and 0.7% less respectively last month compared to May, according to CPI data. “In

    Vegetarians Have Healthier Biomarkers Than Meat Eaters

    U.K. researchers have found that vegetarians have better indicators of health, called biomarkers, than people who eat meat. Vegetarians had overall lower levels of cholesterol, among other biomarkers. Experts say people don’t have to become vegetarian to be healthy. Instead, eating meat in moderation can lead to better health. People who follow a vegetarian diet have a healthier biomarker profile than meat eaters, found a new observational study of more than 177,000 British adults being presented at this week’s European Congress on Obesity (ECO). According to the researchers, this applied to people of any age and weight, and was

    Vegetarians have healthier biomarker profiles than meat-eaters, poster finds

    Preliminary research suggests that vegetarians are healthier than meat-lovers across a number of key biomarkers. Scientists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland examined more than 175,000 British adults, revealing that those with a plant-based diet “had a more favourable biomarkers profile” than meat-lovers when controlling for factors like their age, weight, ethnicity, smoking habits, and how much alcohol they consumed, according to the study poster.

    Who moved my cheese? The silent battle between vegetarians and vegans | Food

    The recent explosion in vegan food has not been without pushback. Mainly from bolshily indignant meat-eaters who take it as a personal affront. But could a far more peaceable group, vegetarians, also be finding all that vegan energy a bit, well, irritating? Anecdotally, their beef (now seitan) is that the current zeitgeisty cool surrounding plant-based food is increasingly pushing vegetarian options off menus. Vegetarians are asking: who moved my cheese? They are seeing their halloumi burgers, sour cream-dressed burritos or blue cheese and mushroom wellingtons removed in favour of vegan meat-free dishes. There is low-level grumbling at this new

    Vegetarians and pescatarians are up to 73% less likely to develop severe Covid-19

    Eating a vegetarian or pescatarian diet reduces your risk of developing severe Covid-19 when compared to people who eat meat, according to a new study. Plant-based vegetarian diets reduce the risk of moderate to severe Covid-19 by up to 73 per cent and a fish-based pescatarian diet reduces the risk by 59 per cent. Previous studies have shown a link between diet and the severity and duration of a Covid-19 infection, which the team wanted to examine in more detail. Drawing on a survey of 2,884 frontline doctors and nurses exposed to the virus between July and September 2020, the
