I am not a vegan advocate but a health advocate.

Veganism is a philosophy that includes dietary restrictions and not a set of dietary and lifestyle guidelines for optimal health.

There are many bad vegan diets out there that are very unhealthy, and many so called healthy vegan diets actually have lots of room for improvement.

I am not suprised at all to see that vegans dont do as well as they could when studies. Many eat too many vegan processed and refined foods, weight too much, are to inactive, drink to much alcohol, eat to much fat, saturated fat, hydrogenated fat and trans fat and do not consume enough fresh fruits, veggies, starchy veggies, intact whole grains, legumes and enough fiber.

I dont think any study should be refer to a "vegan" diet unless it clearly defines what the subjects are eating in regard to the dietary factors that are known to be related to disease (as I mentioned above).

In Health
Jeff
