So this should be a comment, but I'm a couple days behind on the blogs and thought that it might get buried if I posted it now. My question is on the link posted by Whannt is Coffie that suggests that vegans and vegetarians live 6-10 years longer.
My question is, beyond the obvious issues with a diet heavy in red meat, is this a statistic with any value? I have no doubt that vegetarians live longer than meat eaters, I also have no doubt that vegetarians have better health care, get higher salaries, have more advanced degrees, have fewer drug addictions, get shot less, etc. see what I'm saying? are there any studies with controlled variables on this at all?
