Pros & Cons of a Vegan Diet for Weight Loss & Cycling Performance?

Still more evidence humans are designed to be omnivores.

Long term vegetarian diet changes human DNA raising risk of cancer and heart disease

Populations who have had a primarily vegetarian diet for generations carried a genetic mutation which raised risk of cancer and heart disease

...Populations who have had a primarily vegetarian diet for generations were found to be far more likely to carry DNA which makes them susceptible to inflammation.

Scientists in the US believe that the mutation occured to make it easier for vegetarians to absorb essential fatty acids from plants.

But it has the knock-on effect of boosting the production of arachidonic acid, which is known to increase inflammatory disease and cancer. When coupled with a diet high in vegetable oils - such as sunflower oil - the mutated gene quickly turns fatty acids into dangerous arachidonic acid....

...“In such individuals, vegetable oils will be converted to the more pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid, increasing the risk for chronic inflammation that is implicated in the development of heart disease, and exacerbates cancer...."

...However other research suggests vegetarianism lowers the risk of diabetes, stroke and obesity....

Baked beans, falafel, jacket potatoes, hummus, vegetable pizza, chocolate, mushroom risottos, vegetable spring rolls, Olivier salad, vegetable curry, corn and chickpea burgers... The list of foods on the vegetarian menu is long and delicious.

These two have had a long running war about veganism and whatever it is that Colpo promotes (mainly BS). Colpo turns up mid everesting attempt by DR and punches him out as he's climbing 12% gradient ...... WTF!!

Hope bike not too badly damaged.

FWIW Anthony Colpo was also a cyclist at some point, albeit a fat slow one.


Uh,,, OK. I'll just put this here:

And note that in the video that the alleged dog is actually still attached to its leash.

In two videos DR claims to have footage of the actual sucker punch but has not shown it.

Just saying.

Both are douches, but Colpo is just a garden variety alpha male bogan, Johnstone is an outright creep who has been slandering and provoking Colpo and others for years. He's fabricated stories much worse than a sucker punch on a hill.

For more Google thirty bananas a day sux. The forum has closed, but there's still hundreds of disaster stories and slander cases.

My thoughts exactly. I've called out DR so many times on his BS. He is an insult to the vegan community.

Neither veganism nor full-blown omnivorism are optimal diets. The best (and healthiest) is a diet with vegetables, grains, dairy products, eggs and fish, but no livestock or poultry in it.

Processed meat, on the other hand, is way too unhealthy, and even people who otherwise consume meat should eliminate it from their diet.
