Vegetarian Men are More Depressed - Are Steaks a Treatment? | American Council on Science and Health

From the same dataset that brought you the information that vegetarian mothers create drug-addled children, we learn that vegetarian men are more depressed than their meat-eating brothers. The study, Vegetarian diets and depressive symptoms among men, is in the Journal of Affective Disorders.


Certainly the idea of becoming a vegetarian is depressing, while the idea of slapping a large rib eye on the grill inspires a certain hunger and satisfaction, especially if accompanied by thoughts of a robust Cabernet. Chicken a bit less, though barbecue is similarly enticing. Salmon doesn't do it for me anymore, but I'll eat seared tuna any day. Hamburgers can be exquisite. One could go on.

Bonkers people are disproportionally likely to become vegetarian? Isn't that consistent with common observation?

"vegetarian mothers create drug-addled children": or bonkers women are disproportionally likely to become vegetarian and also to have bonkers children who will become drug-addled. Does a veggie diet imposed on children further raise their risk of being bonkers?
