Vegetarianism of the non-ethnic-minority variety is mostly a SWPL status marker.
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.
So it’s not healthy to be a vegetarian. Luckily, I never fell for the vegetarian mumbo-jumbo, just as I never fell for global warming.
