    The vegan diet is on-trend. How this type of diet affects health is the subject of scientific studies. In a new study from the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), the bone health of 36 vegans, as well as 36 people following a mixed-food diet, was determined with an ultrasound measurement of the heel bone. The result: on average, people following a vegan diet had lower ultrasound values compared to the other group. This indicates poorer bone health.

    I love vegan food but I also love eating meat especially fish meat every once or twice a week. I wonder how vegans complete their DV of vitamins and minerals to maintain good health?

    TBH, it takes a fair bit of study to live as a vegan wile still taking in all the nutrients the human body needs. I have met people who call themselves vegetarian who are obese and unhealthy. They seem to think that vegetarian means living on pasta! I also know a number of people who are my age (older than dirt) but who are healthy and active because they've read studies and are doing it right.
