    This article was originally published here Soc Sci Med. 2021 Nov 6:114542. doi: 10.1016/j.socscimed.2021.114542. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Research examining the influence of neighborhood healthy food environment on diet has been mostly cross-sectional and has lacked robust characterization of the food environment. We examined longitudinal associations between features of the local food environment and healthy diet, and whether associations were modified by race/ethnicity. METHODS: Data on 3634 adults aged 45-84 followed for 10 years were obtained from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.

Around the world, people have come to understand that every action has repercussions that ultimately affect the planet.

    Vegetarian diet quality influences mental health

    Dr Megan Lee of Bond University has researched the diets of vegans and vegetarians. Credit: Cavan Flynn Not all vegan and vegetarian diets are healthy—and one consequence of a low-quality plant-based diet could be poorer mental health. New research has found plant-eaters with a taste for processed foods are more susceptible to depression than peers with diets high in fresh produce. Megan Lee, a researcher in nutritional psychiatry at Bond University, said the findings were significant given the increasing popularity of vegan and vegetarian lifestyles and the proliferation of packaged foods targeting those markets.

    War On Vaccines: Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine Claims A Vegetarian Diet Makes COVID-19 Mortality Drop

    The animal rights activist group Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has an op-ed in American Journal of Medicine claiming that if you want the COVID-19 vaccine to work ‘better’, whatever that is supposed to mean, adopt a vegetarian diet.

I certainly would not want to visit Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, where the lead author of the opinion piece teaches. Ivermectin uses bad correlation, as do   Read More
