Vegetarian (Ovo Lacto) is not the same as vegan.
While some vegans could be considered traditional food eaters and those who obstain or limit sugars and modern man made synthetic oils are better off than many omnivours who consume mass amounts of sugar and said synthetic oils like corn and soy and rape seed ie Canola; the varied diets in the sub continent of India is not the issue of a thread on tofu for infants. Look at the increase of blood sugar (Hemoglobin A1c) and the results in health goes along way to explaining more optimal and less optima eating. Many flashy peer reviewed articeles are full of flaws by accident or design.
Do you know what is the average Hindu Hb A1c? By quintiles? If not why do you post? Tell us about average life and mortality and morbidity of the Hindu you write about. Eric
Maybe a bit more reseach
Like Ketogenic Diets
You may be entitled to spout opinions as we all do from time to time but not Faux Facts! Eric
PS what do you think of soy oils? Corn oils? and the ilk (kind) of man made faux foods? Maybe we can just agree sugar is bad!
How many years of education in biology or chemistry or nutrition does it take to have a reasonable discussion about diet and health?
If you write you know nothing about the site then why post as if it might have some valid input?
What do you know about ketogenic diets?
Hemoglobin A1c and death from all causes
HDL and death from all causes
Blood sugar and death from all causes
Pritikin / dean ornish 80 percent carbohydrate diets (Even when the exclude sugars) lower HDL and increase blood sugars and insulin and IGF-1 more than a ketogenic diet.
