Ui ui ui, poltically absolutely incorrect! Wer die Wahrheit ausspricht, der braucht ein schnelles Pferd

Background

The present study investigated associations between vegetarian diet and mental disorders.

Methods

Participants were drawn from the representative sample of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey and its Mental Health Supplement (GHS-MHS). Completely vegetarian (N = 54) and predominantly vegetarian (N = 190) participants were compared with non-vegetarian participants (N = 3872) and with a non-vegetarian socio-demographically matched subsample (N = 242).
Results

Vegetarians displayed elevated prevalence rates for depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and somatoform disorders. Due to the matching procedure, the findings cannot be explained by socio-demographic characteristics of vegetarians (e.g. higher rates of females, predominant residency in urban areas, high proportion of singles). The analysis of the respective ages at adoption of a vegetarian diet and onset of a mental disorder showed that the adoption of the vegetarian diet tends to follow the onset of mental disorders.
Conclusions

In Western cultures vegetarian diet is associated with an elevated risk of mental disorders. However, there was no evidence for a causal role of vegetarian diet in the etiology of mental disorders.

einverstanden. aber was ist die "causal role" dafür? das fehlende fleisch oder das mehr an soja und weizen?
ich finde man sollte ethisch-motivierte vegetarier supporten. könnte man das vielleicht schon mit mehr eiern ausgleichen?

Hallo philus,

anhand der Symptome fallen mir auf Anhieb B12, Cholin, Folsäure und DHA ein. Sowas sollte man halt nicht nur durch Fragebögen ermittlen, sondern auch mal im Blut messen.
