Default Vegetarian Diet Weakens Bones

DUH! This is called common sense! Did there really need to be a study on this?

Vegetarian diet 'weakens bones'

Thu Jul 2, 6:31 am ET

SYDNEY (AFP) People who live on vegetarian diets have slightly weaker bones than their meat-eating counterparts, Australian researchers said Thursday.

A joint Australian-Vietnamese study of links between the bones and diet of more than 2,700 people found that vegetarians had bones five percent less dense than meat-eaters, said lead researcher Tuan Nguyen.

The issue was most pronounced in vegans, who excluded all animal products from their diet and whose bones were six percent weaker, Nguyen said.

There was "practically no difference" between the bones of meat-eaters and ovolactovegetarians, who excluded meat and seafood but ate eggs and dairy products, he said.

"The results suggest that vegetarian diets, particularly vegan diets, are associated with lower bone mineral density," Nguyen wrote in the study, which was published Thursday in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

"But the magnitude of the association is clinically insignificant," he added.

Nguyen, who is from Sydney's Garvan Institute for Medical Research and collaborated on the project with the Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine in Ho Chi Minh City, said the question of whether the lower density bones translated to increased fracture risk was yet to be answered.

"Given the rising number of vegetarians, roughly five percent (of people) in western countries, and the widespread incidence of osteoporosis, the issue is worth resolving," he said.

Yes, it is no secret that man cannot live on vegtables alone. I wonder if these vegetarians consumed milk and dairy products as well. Lately, I have been reading up about milk and dairy products and their effects on our health. There have been some studies that suggest that cow milk consumption causes osteoperosis!

Remember all those commercials about how milk is so good for your bones and body because of the vitamin D and calcium. America is the largest consumer of cow milk in the world and we have the highest rate of osteoporosis.

Other studies have linked cow milk consumption to cancers such as colon and breast because of the bovine growth hormone.

Also, a study that shows all that calcium in milk is not so good for our arteries.

There is some evidence that early exposure to cow's milk (less than 1 year of age) can trigger Type 1 diabetes. This is in people who have the genetic predisposition to it already.

VERY misleading thread title.

A vegetarian DOES NOT eat meat, and it says there is virtually no difference.
A VEGAN, doesn't eat any animal product, and that is where the difference is.

Amen! We had an out-break of angry vegans at VCU one semester, so there quickly sprang up am anti-PETA group on Facebook called "For every animal you don't eat, I'll eat THREE!!!"

That way, you weren't just equalling out their vegan-ism, but in fact over-balancing it in favor of carnivores. Therefore, if they truly loved animals, it'd be more effective for them to stop being vegans because them eating meat would actually decrease the number of dead animals.
