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.
