    But healthy looking vegans have much more fun though:

    I thought a guy at work had cancer. Nope. Vegan.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Makes sense.
    If he indeed had cancer, he most likely would have been an avid meat eater. Perhaps of the kind that wolves down pigs for breakfast.

    How does your argument even make sense? Kg obviously said "nope" his colleague isn't affected with cancer. His colleague's demeanor is most likely due to veganism.

    Yeah. Which it doesn't. Meat mostly causes awesomeness.

    But the person in question didn't have cancer so his stab at meat is purely hypothetical...

    That study linked on pg 1, actually shows that lactovegetarians do the best (25% overweight/obese vs 40% overweight/obese among the meat-eaters). So, question is if lactovegetarian diet is the best for women?

    Results: The prevalence of overweight or obesity (BMI ≥ 25) was 40% among omnivores, 29% among both semivegetarians and vegans, and 25% among lactovegetarians. In multivariate, adjusted logistic regression analyses, self-identified vegans had a significantly lower risk of overweight or obesity [odds ratio (OR) = 0.35; 95% CI: 0.18, 0.69] than did omnivores, as did lactovegetarians (OR = 0.54; 95% CI: 0.35, 0.85) and semivegetarians (OR = 0.52; 95% CI: 0.43, 0.62). Risk of overweight or obesity remained significantly lower among lactovegetarians classified on the basis of the food-frequency questionnaire (OR = 0.48; 95% CI: 0.30, 0.78).

    Conclusions: Even if vegetarians consume some animal products, our results suggest that self-identified semivegetarian, lactovegetarian, and vegan women have a lower risk of overweight and obesity than do omnivorous women. The advice to consume more plant foods and less animal products may help individuals control their weight.
