Another Argument Against Vegetarian Diets

The left, with their hatred of all things good, are often crowing about the health benefits of a vegetarian diet. They ignore the feact that many innocent children have been killed by incompetent parents who foolishly put them on meatless diets.

Now we have evidence that vegetarian diets are also unhealthy for adults. The lack of vitamin B12, which can only be obtained from milk, eggs, or meat, causes brain shrinkage:

A vitamin found in meat, fish and milk may help stave off memory loss in old age, a study has suggested.
Older people with lower than average vitamin B12 levels were more than six times more likely to experience brain shrinkage, researchers concluded.

It may be the case that the B12 deficiency is causing people to become stupid and demented and results in them making poor choices in life such as advocating vegetarian diets or voting for socialist politicians like Obama.

Professor David Smith, who directs the Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing, said he now planned a trial of B vitamins in the elderly to see if taking them could slow brain shrinkage.
He said: "This study adds another dimension to our understanding of the effects of B vitamins on the brain - the rate of shrinkage of the brain as we age may be partly influenced by what we eat."
Shrinkage has been strongly linked with a higher risk of developing dementia at a later stage and Rebecca Wood, the chief executive of the Alzheimer's Research Trust, said further research was needed.
"This study suggests that consuming more vitamin B12 through eating meat, fish, fortified cereals or milk as part of a balanced diet might help protect the brain. Liver and shellfish are particularly rich sources of B12.
"Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common problem among elderly people in the UK and has been linked to declining memory and dementia."
Dr Susanne Sorensen, from the Alzheimer's Society said: "Shrinkage is usually associated with the development of dementia.

I shot some more dove on Sunday. I am marinading the breasts in red wine and will roast them for dinner tonight.
