VEGANS! Maybe you should slap some bacon on that avocado, lentil and pomegranate smash.
That’s the view of several doctors who believe veganism is leading to a rise in malnutrition across wealthy countries.
The term “hidden hunger” is used to describe a person’s lack of vitamins and minerals resulting from poor quality food, an issue that generally plagues the population of developing countries.
However, some experts are now suggesting the phenomenon is a growing public health concern in developed countries because of the growth of vegetarian and vegan diets.
The issue is not the diets themselves, claim the medical experts in an article published on The Conversation, rather it’s the way the diets are executed by a portion of people that leave them devoid of critical nutrients.
HAS anybody ever considered that an adrenaline rush undertaken at several thousand feet might be the secret to longevity?
Unusual logic we concede, however given an Aussie woman has become the world’s oldest skydiver at 102, we’re willing to draw some spurious medical conclusions on this one.
