"Meat consumption is associated with better mental health, meta-analysis finds"

Literal quote from the article:

"This study was funded in part via an unrestricted research grant from the Beef Checkoff, through the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association."

@beto I bet the study also only included men, possibly even biased toward conservative men.

@beto Not promising, admittedly, but I'd be interested in a closer look. Link, please?

@beto tbh, I like that caveat para of the abstract; particularly the closing:

However, the researchers note a few limitations. This meta-analysis only included studies that were published in English, which could bias the results toward Western norms. Excluding papers in other languages (such as Hindi), could have omitted studies that were conducted in regions that follow predominantly vegetarian or plant-based diets. As well, despite the observed link between meat consumption and mental health, these results prevent inferences about the temporal order of these variables and causal conclusions.

But that’s definitely a hot take. 😊
