I expect you are more right than wrong. But then, I recall a $16,000 32inch flat screen TV a few years ago at a big box store. The point is things have to start someplace. Once released out into the wild the market will help it improve or go away. Today, you can get a 60 inch flat screen for just a couple hundred, and it works so much better. With out those first $16,000 32 inch flat screen buyers we would not have the larger cheaper better ones we have today. Same is true for food.

Yup, things gotta start someplace. Remember those bricks called batteries we could add to the back of the phones so they would last more than an hour?

My first cell phone was a brick.

New study indicates vegetarians are more likely to die of stroke than meat eaters. But meat eaters have more coronary heart disease. Balance is probably the best as long as it is delicious!

Last time I went to BK (466, op.TVC school) it was a freezing cold day, even colder inside, as they could not turn the A/C down, and to put the icing on the cake, they were out of burgers!
Given the place a miss ever since.

If you are referring to the large Oxford study, it showed vegetarians had 1% fewer cases of heart disease and 0.3% more cases of strokes.

However, it was an observational study, and it did not determine why. So, it may be something other than diet that caused the differences.

Also, the study took place over 2 decades ago, and vegetarians today do not eat the same diet they ate back then - and neither do red meat eaters.

Also, while the number of cases of heart disease is about the same as the number of strokes per year in the US, the number of deaths from heart disease is about 8 times that of strokes. Most people survive strokes.

Thanks for posting the details of the study. I know if I was strictly vegan, life would seem very, very long....

Thank goodness for vegetarians. The more that convert, the better. It means that the price of BEEF will go down and I plan to continue to eat plenty of beef for the rest of my life. If the left bans beef then I will become an avid hunter and eat more venison. My blood work comes out perfect every year and I am bordering 70 years young. If not for my spouse, the only green that would come near to me would be in my wallet. Still wondering why anyone would want to FAKE a hamburger or Hotdog. Guess they are not TOTALLY committed and trying to make themselves satisfied with pretending to eat a real burger.
But, BK doesn't get my business anyway, so the whole point of the impossible burger is moot. 12-16oz of medium rare beef per meal is a must. Only thing that competes with BEEF and other BBQ meats is PIZZA with plenty of meat on it. Now that is a balanced meal.

I grew up in Texas and loe good tex-mex cuisne. That being said, boy do I miss Jack in the Box tacos! My guilty pleasure!

New study. Same conclusion.
Vegetarians May Face Higher Stroke Risk
