They SWORE it was the healthiest way to eat.
And when enough folks didn’t make the switch, they URGED everyone to follow it for at least a few days a week.
The mainstream has been trying to get everyone to swear off of eating meat – or at least cut way back… for decades now.
With their guilt-inducing battle cry … “Do it for the planet! Do it for your health!” … they’ve strong-armed as many people as they could into switching to a vegetarian diet.
But it turns out if you follow this advice, you could end up taking a ride in the back of an ambulance. Because suffering a STROKE caused by this so-called healthy-lifestyle change isn’t out of the question.
So fire up the grill instead. Because meat’s back on the menu as the new research reveals the truth about going vegetarian.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love a good vegetable as much as the next gal. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever met a veggie I DIDN’T like.
But, let’s just say after this news you might never look at a salad in quite the same way again.
Are you swapping heart disease for a stroke?
At first glance, vegetarians were no doubt celebrating the new study.
Overall, the study found folks who were following this restrictive anti-meat diet had a 22 percent lower risk of heart disease.
But don’t bake that soy celebration cake just yet. Because the NEXT part of the study cancels the party.
You see, the vegetarian diet devotees also had a 20 percent HIGHER risk of having a devastating stroke.
The bottom line? Vegetarians appear to have a lower risk of heart disease. While meat-eaters seem to have a lower risk of stroke.
Confused yet? Well, don’t be. Because you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can eat well, enjoy life, and cut the risk of BOTH heart disease and stroke at the same time.
And best of all you can do it WITHOUT making any real sacrifices.
Going vegetarian isn’t as healthy as you think
If the science of recent years has taught us ANYTHING, it’s that the real problem isn’t in eating meat. And the solution ISN’T avoiding it.
The problem is processed foods.
Processed meats, of course. Processed bread, definitely. But also processed VEGETABLES… which sounds nutty on the face of it. Except highly processed veggies are what the modern vegetarian diet is built upon.
There’s a growing number of processed food options to make this restrictive lifestyle easier to follow. But most of them have been monkeyed with as much as any meat product out there.
And those vegetarian burgers showing up EVERYWHERE now – including at Burger King of all places – contain enough chemicals to keep Dr. Frankenstein busy for years.
The solution is obvious: Switch to a sensible and balanced diet of fresh foods. If you eliminate the processed stuff – including sugars and grains – and stick to less refined foods, you won’t have to worry about the specifics.
Odds are, it’ll be better than what 99 percent of the nation is eating right now.
Make it lower carb too and you’ll be rewarded with a longer, healthier life with a lower risk of heart attack, stroke, and chronic disease.
Now… what’s going on the grill tonight?
