Vegetarian Brain Shrinkage

Boy oh boy, isn’t this funny?

MELBOURNE: Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.

Vegans and vegetarians are the most likely to be deficient because the best sources of the vitamin are meat, particularly liver, milk and fish. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause anaemia and inflammation of the nervous system. Yeast extracts are one of the few vegetarian foods which provide good levels of the vitamin.

This is sure to be as popular a topic with vegetarians and meatitarians (for want of a sillier coinage) alike as the venerable tofu brain shrinkage issue. To add to the irony, note where the article was found (hint, vegan central).

  1. *heh* Saw that. Fired up the grill. Burned a buncha tasty animal flesh. Ate it. (OK, OK, I shared with family.)

    Yum.

  2. Yum. I think I’ll eat the rest of that meatball sandwich for breakfast tomorrow.

  3. FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    NEWSWIRE–Vegetarians could be six times more at risk of brain-shrinking diseases, compared to meat-eaters.

    Ponder please, before your next new diet starts,
    All the vegetables we link to body parts:
    Both the cabbage and the lettuce are a head,
    And the Adam’s apple blushes shades of red.
    Though the orange has a Navel in its name,
    Ears of corn and cauliflower aren’t the same.
    Folks in Idaho will bake potato skin;
    From the palm we get to eat the hearts within.

    All these ties will help a veggie diet shrink
    Both the inches of your waist
    And where you think.

  4. HAHAHAHA. This is fabulous. I do not like to see anyone get ill, but come on! Don’t bug me ’cause you don’t want to eat what’s on my plate, ya know? Now we find it’s dangerous for them? Hmm. I had NOTHING to do with that! 😉
