A vegetarian diet may have some significantly negative effects on your health according to Austrian researchers Health and wellness Study done at Medical University of Graz, vegetarians generally have poorer health and a lower quality of life than those that eat meat
The study used data from Austrian Health Interview Survey. Stated that vegetarians are more physically active and avoid things like alcohol and tobacco, however still have an increased risk of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders
Vegetarians are less likely to seek preventative measures such as vaccines More research will need to be done before they can reach a definite conclusion “No statements can be made whether the poorer health in vegetarians in our study is caused by their dietary habit or if they consume this form of diet due to their poorer health status.”
The researchers also admit that they would need to measure caloric intake more carefully in future studies. The research does show that a carnivorous diet rich in fruit and vegetables may be the healthiest way to eat. It showed that vegetarians were also the most likely to develop conditions including osteoporosis, migraines, bronchitis and cataracts.
