Interesting research here looking at rates of mental health – specifically depression – in vegetarians. That rate is higher than in the general population. So, yes we’re right and have been all along – vegetarians are not as other men. We do still have a certain problem here though:
Vegetarians [n = 350 (3.6% of sample)], had higher depression scores on average than non-vegetarians (mean difference 0.96 points [95%CI + 0.53, + 1.40]) and a greater risk for EPDS scores above 10 (adjusted OR = 1.67 [95% CI: 1.14,2.44]) than non-vegetarians after adjustment for potential confounding factors.
