Where’s the beef? A new study concludes that if you want to avoid being depressed you had better find the beef. The report said vegetarians are almost twice as likely to suffer from some form of depression when compared to those who consume meat in their diet.

Vegetarians also tended to eat more nuts that have a higher amount of omega-6 fatty acids, which has been linked to an increased risk of mental health issues.

Researchers said the vegetarians’ diet was lower in vitamin B12, which is naturally found in animal products, including meat, eggs, poultry, and dairy. Continue reading
