Vegetarianism Leads to Genetic Mutations That Increase Risk of Cancer and Heart Disease

If vegetarianism were not unnatural, moonbats wouldn’t dream of imposing it by force. Science confirms that our flesh-tearing canines are there for a reason; we were designed to eat meat:

Long term vegetarianism can lead to genetic mutations which raise the risk of heart disease and cancer, scientists have found. …

The finding may help explain previous research which found vegetarian populations are nearly 40 per cent more likely to suffer colorectal cancer than meat eaters…

Researchers from Cornell University in the US compared hundreds of genomes from a primarily vegetarian population in Pune, India to traditional meat-eating people in Kansas and found there was a significant genetic difference.

Maybe American ways beat politically correct Third World ways after all.

To make the problem worse, the mutation also hinders the production of beneficial Omega 3 fatty acid which is protective against heart disease.

Just in case the threat of cancer and heart disease aren’t enough to motivate you to tuck into a steak…

Previous studies have shown that vegetarianism and veganism can lead to problems with fertility by lowering sperm counts.

Separate research from Harvard University also found that a diet high in fruit and vegetables may impact fertility because men are consuming high quantities of pesticides.

Darwinism works in not-so-mysterious ways.

Many vegetarians also struggle to get enough protein, iron, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and calcium which are essential for health. One study found that vegetarians had approximately five percent lower bone-mineral density (BMD) than non-vegetarians.

But at least militant vegetarians never struggle to get enough smug piety.

Vegetables are a side dish, not a meal.
