    When separated from the rest, vegans had a 15% lower risk of dying prematurely from all causes, indicating that a vegan diet may indeed help people live longer than those who adhere to vegetarian or omnivorous eating patterns ( 5 ).

    No it just seems like it when you are such a bore and deny yourself the God given pleasure of tasty food.

      Many "dietary studies" are geared towards wither trying to make this or that diet look good or bad. The same with the different things we eat. However the ability to follow a strict vegetarian/vegan diet long term for some, has only been around for just a little over sixty years. So there's not enough evidence to establish anything in the way that can be considered as solid evidence. Besides there are other cofactors involved that goes well beyond any reasonably healthy diet. Some of those also includes genetics, environmental factors, stress, general health, to name some of the common cofactors that's involved.

    Not if they dictate to meat eaters that meat is bad.

    Yes studies have shown that a total vegan diet can extend your life by up to 15 years. Here's something you probably did not know in countries where the eating of cocoa leaf is legal by the way it doesn't make you high.

    There are people that are living into their very late 80s and '90s and hundreds. And they're strong and able to work until they just drop dead.

    This is why coca leaf is illegal in the United States.

    You wouldn't be able to get enough of it by buying little packages to make tea out of. To manufacture cocaine or to get high off of it.

    But the government is in great fear that if they made this product legal the life expectancy would rise to 80 or 90 here in the United States and they would have to pay social security!
