A Good Time AND a Long Time

Further evidence for the Prick’s long-held belief that dietary “-isms” are the road to ruin and that one should simply eat good food that tastes good:

Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts…the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products — carries elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health disorders.

Vegetarians were twice as likely to have allergies, a 50 percent increase in heart attacks and a 50 percent increase in incidences of cancer.

That’s enough for me. The science is settled!

    Also I have noticed that after 40, mildly overweight people look younger than underweight people.

    And far be it for me to sully your website with the mating habits of the big cats but it is standard procedure for female lions to shutdown their reproductive system in times of drought or famine and save it for next season.

    It’s therefore curious to see mid to late 30 something underweight gluten free vegetarians puzzled at having trouble conceiving children when they have an obviously bad diet and not even taxpayer funded IVF treatment is helping. Just a thought.

    It’s a bit like the old Pritiken diet:

    You may not get cancer, you’ll just look like you have it.

    Well, of course. Have you ever seen a healthy looking vego?

    “mental health disorders”? I think they had those going in.

    I endorse the assessment of Mr. Jenkison in T.L. Peacock’s Headlong Hall:

    “I am no anatomist,” said Mr Jenkison, “and cannot decide where doctors disagree; in the meantime, I conclude that man is omnivorous, and on that conclusion I act.”
