More reason I am glad to be a vegetarian.

Breaking Medical News from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine that Animal Protein is Linked to Early Death

"Eating a diet high in animal protein leads to an earlier death, compared with people who consume less, according to a new study analyzing data from 6,381 American adults aged 50 and older. Participants who ate the most animal protein had a 5-fold increase risk of death related to diabetes. Those younger than 65 who ate the most animal protein had a 74 percent increase risk for death from any cause and a 4-fold increase in death related to cancer, during a follow-up of 18 years. Risks for death were diminished or absent when protein sources were plant-derived.

"Levine ME, Suarez JA, Brandhorst S, et al. Low protein intake is associated with a major reduction in IGF-1, cancer, and overall mortality in the 65 and younger but not older population. Cell Metab. 2014; 19:407-417."

I recently gave up vegetarianism after five years and I can feel the sluggishness and mental fog. I've been eating generally unhealthy anyways, so I'm sure it's not just starting to consume meat again, but it is wonderful how much your diet plays into your overall health.

Thanks for sharing.
