Veggie research

Hey gang,

I'm doing a bit of research on how a meat free diet can change somebody's whole perspective and how it can impact on their mental health - in particular, how this can benefit children.

Does anybody have any personal encounters/ or stories that they would like to share?

Hi Al,

While many of us have positive stories about vegetarianism, the personal anecdotes of a dozen people should not be considered as sufficient data for research.

If you are looking for objective data about the health of vegetarians vs. the health of omnivores, I strongly encourage you to read the Adventist Health Study and the Adventist Health Study 2. These are the largest peer-reviewed vegetarian / omnivore health studies ever done. More than 96,000 people are being studied for the Adventist Health Study 2: http://publichealth.llu.edu/adventist-health-studies

You might even consider contacting the Loma Linda University School of Public Health, the university that conducted / is conducting these studies.
