Vegans 43% more likely to suffer broken bones than meat eaters, Oxford study finds
A study by academics at the University of Oxford found that vegans have more than double the risk of suffering a broken hip than meat eaters, with the affliction common in older people, especially women.
Vegan diets more than double the risk of a broken hip, warns new research.

A study of more than 50,000 British people tracked over two decades found giving up animal flesh weakens bones - and can trigger osteoporosis.

Compared with people who ate meat and fish, scientists found that those with lower calcium and protein intake were especially prone to hip, leg and spine fractures.

Vegans were also 43 per cent more likely to suffer a fracture anywhere. In particular this applied to the leg, vertebrae and collarbone.

The latest research by the Vegan Society says there are now 600,000 vegans in Britain.

Study lead author Dr Tammy Tong, an Oxford University nutritional epidemiologist, said: "The biggest differences were for hip fractures, where the risk in vegans was 2.3 times higher than in people who ate meat - equivalent to 15 more cases per 1,000 people over 10 years."
Women are most vulnerable because their bones naturally lose strength after the menopause as levels of oestrogen drop.

Famous celebrity vegans include Natalie Portman, Ellie Goulding, Pamela Anderson, Sir Paul McCartney and Joaquin Phoenix.

The most comprehensive analysis of its kind was based on participants of the EPIC-Oxford study who were recruited between 1993 and 2001 - around three quarters of whom are women.

Around 29,400 ate meat, nearly 17,500 were vegetarians or vegans and just over 8,000 were fish eating pescatarians.

Dr Tong said: "We found vegans had a higher risk of total fractures which resulted in close to 20 more cases per 1000 people over a 10-year period compared to people who ate meat."

Participants' diets were assessed initially, and then again in 2010. They were followed up until 2016, for 18 years on average, for the occurrence of fractures.

Fracture risk was partly reduced once BMI (body mass index) and dietary calcium and protein consumption had been taken into account.
This is associated with a higher risk of hip fractures, and low intakes of calcium and protein have both been linked to poorer bone health."

Possible explanations include the cushioning against impact force during a fall, enhanced oestrogen production with increased adiposity or stronger bones from greater weight-bearing.

Dr Tong said: "This study showed vegans, who on average had lower BMI as well as lower intakes of calcium and protein than meat eaters, had higher risks of fractures at several sites.

"Well-balanced and predominantly plant-based diets can result in improved nutrient levels and have been linked to lower risks of diseases including heart disease and diabetes.

"Individuals should take into account the benefits and risks of their diet, and ensure they have adequate levels of calcium and protein and also maintain a healthy BMI, that is, neither under nor overweight."

Eat cow become cow?

Eat pig become pig?

No thanks, I'll stick to my NBA vegan diet so I remain clear of heart disease and obesity.
Eating meat doesn't make you obese or causes a heart disease. Its how its cooked makes the difference - even processed and deep fried vegetables (french fries?) will cause you the same issues. And lets not forget lack of physical activity is also another culprit for the same issues.

1. The heavy weights of the living realm.

Again, mixing politics with science only add ignorance, to say the least.

Indeed, are elephants, water buffaloes, more fragile than snakes and dogs?

As a matter of fact the heaviest ever animals that have lived on this planets earth in the past and present are all vegetarian without exceptions!

Then why ethnic European seems to be more feeble, when practising veganism?

Science will tell that its partly genetic, partly due to lifestyle.

Genetic because if their ancestors were not vegans, then they might be at risk.

And of course ethnic Europeans (aka Homo SS) were known to be cannibals when they came from Africa, and invaded Europe 45'000 years ago, to the point of causing the extinction of the native Europeans called Neanderthals hunted as food!

On the other hand, ethnic Chinese (aka Sinanthrope) have obviously mostly vegetarian ancestors, at the exception of the ethnic Mongol and Manchus invaders' descents.

Therefore ethnic Chinese have no problem, with vegan diet, as long as they eat more than their carnivorous counterparts from the North.

In a nutshell, Vegans must be chubby.

Same goes for the panda, who eat most of the day time, and unlike the wolves, snakes and crocodiles, etc who only eat every other days, weeks or so.

Finally, the external factor, that is life style.

Everyone knows that years of dedicated training of the famous Chinese Shaolin monks are legendary, having bones so dense due to repeated physical stress, that the multiple micro fractures after re-calcifications allows increased strength, far superior than any other humans!

Why Shaolin are vegetarians?


▲ Emperor Wu of Liang (梁武帝) (464–549), The Bodhisattva Emperor

In 507 some years after the Foundation of Shaolin Temple, the Buddhist Emperor Wu of the Liang dynasty convened a conference to discuss the question of meat eating. He also, wrote an essay entitled "Forsake Alcohol and Meat" in which he urged Buddhists to become vegetarians. Emperor Wu is traditionally said to be responsible for the institutionalization of vegetarianism in Chinese Buddhism.

So , all the Shaolin are vegetarians ?

They ought to be. The first of Buddhism's Ten Precepts is, "Refrain from destroying life."


Vajrayana monks may eat meat because Vajrayana Buddhism incorporated many Tibetan practices, and as vegetables were rare in Tibet, Tibetans ate a lot of meat. On the other hand, Mahayana Buddhism flourished in China, where Mahayana monks grew their own food and were strict vegetarians.

Becoming a monk marks one of the highest points in a person's life. It calls for great sacrifice and dedication, and should be undertaken only after very serious and thorough consideration.

If a monk cannot resist worldly temptations like eating meat and drinking alcohol, he should leave his monk hood because he would be blatantly disrespecting his sacred monastic order.

Therefore finally breaking the exodiplomatic bottleneck in the 21th century, a feat out of reach for any other civilizations!

How callous, while the motivation of the vegans is at the opposite, trying to avoid inflicting death and pains to others...

Singapore has become the first government to approve a lab-grown meat product. The U.S. start-up Eat Just was granted permission to sell “cultured chicken.”

Not surprised, because Taiwan and Singapore as pockets of the Chinese culture remnant are probably where vegans obsessed with compassion are the most numerous in the world.

This lab-grown meat is not veganism as per definition, but one step closer though.

The real step is to recreate meat not in the living state (living cultured cells) but in the cooked form (molecular 3D printing).

Because one could easily grow human cells or plant cells instead.

You see the difference. It must be produced not in the living form.

They have already created 100% vegan milk from cow. They got the gene making milk from cow put it into yeast or algea feed it sugar water and out comes milk.

Not Vegan as per definition either.

Because algae and yeast are made of living cells. You kill these living beings, though invisible to the human eyes.

People kind of seem to be skipping over this. Vegans need more protein and calcium, even if plant based. It is a fact that you get more protein and calcium from animal products, and at a higher quality.

That is some serious pseudo-scientific bull.
  1. Size has nothing to do with vegan diet. Herbivores are large so they can access food and avoid predators. Not to mention, the oxygen content in the atmosphere was higher in the time of the dinosaurs.
  2. Homo Sapiens are modern humans, not "ethnic Europeans". They are ancestors of you and I, who came out of Africa and mixed with or displaced Neanderthals and Denisovans. Where are you getting the "were known to be cannibals" from? They were hunters and gatherers. They did not eat the Neanderthals--Lol.
  3. Neanderthals weren't "Native European". They were spread across Eurasia. In fact, east Asians have more Neanderthal DNA than Europeans.
  4. All humans today are Homo Sapiens, including "Chinese (aka Sinanthrope)". Homo erectus was extinct long before Homo sapiens came out of Africa.
Etc. Etc. Etc. I hate to break it to you but you do not have any racial superiority over others.

I will lambaste all this ridiculous and laughable verbiage that only exposes how brainwash by the European propaganda you are, unless you are one of them.

• Size is absolutely linked to vegetarian diet. Ever heard of the food pyramid? Please do yourself a favor and return to high school.
"Not to mention, the oxygen content in the atmosphere was higher in the time of the dinosaurs."

This is sheer sophistry. Did atmospheric oxygen discriminate the carnivorous? Don't further ridiculise yourself.

• Denisovians are not related to Chinese. It is a carnivorous group that strived in Northern Mongolian/Tanu Tuva regions, whose genes were transmitted partly and that survived in today's world in the carnivorous ethnic Tibetans.

• Neanderthals were "Native Europeans", to stressed how Homo SS "modern Europeans" are the invasive species.

• Neanderthals were spread across Eurasia, as a type of Homo Erectus. Of course, east Asians have more Neanderthal DNA than Europeans because as said Sinanthrope is a type of Homo Erectus, and not an Homo SS.

• East Asians? Total mismatch again my poor friend. This is typical 20th century European rhetoric. Again Mongols, Tibetans, and even Koreans and Japanese are all carnivorous (MSG sensitive). Why mix then with ethnic Chinese that are unrelated?

• Sinanthrope are not descendent of the Homo SS. Europeans are Homo SS.

Simply because Sinanthrope was present in today's China 2 millions years ago and evolved into the ethnic Chinese of today.

While Homo SS only arrived in Europe 45'000 years ago from Africa. Big difference.

But there are even more blatant evidence: Homo SS to support its carnivorous diet (cannibal) has 4 sharp canine teeth.

No ethnic Chinese have canine, because Sinanthrope didn't have the need to develop this trait of carnivorous.

Dare to post a pic of your dentition? This point is so funny that European schools have started to censor this most compromising anatomic detail in their books about 40 years ago. Google and prepare for a good laugh!

But why all these strange Hollywood movies since the 1960s about...vampires suddenly? :rofl::lol:

Basically the same European inferiority complex when googling brain size:rofl:

Homo SS enjoys the taste of bloody meat. The molecule associated is the infamous Monosodium glutamate (MSG).

But no ethnic Chinese can detect it! (Not to be confused with invaders from Mongolian Manchu descent)

Basically, ethnic Chinese share this similarity with the panda (only enjoy taste of veg) and unlike the bear!

Again European schools in Chemistry classes censor this by shame.:omghaha:

Get your facts right before posting nonsense, only to avoid making yourself a fool.

GENETICS MATTERS.
