So is vegetarian really best?

http://www.cnn.com

Ultimately, we cannot say that eating a vegan or vegetarian or meat diet is any better for the environment. This is because all can be appropriate if production systems are sustainable, there is no waste and positive health outcomes are achieved. There are clearly trade-offs in choosing foods. Air freighting of green beans from Kenya into the UK was seen as unsustainable because of air miles but it also supports up to 1.5m people and livelihoods in some of the poorest regions of Sub-Saharan Africa. It's not just meat that increase greenhouse gases. Rice -- produced on 163m hectares, around 12% of the global arable area -- has one of the greatest plant carbon footprints because it produces a lot of methane.

Can You Have a Healthy Vegetarian or Vegan Pregnancy?

https://www.nytimes.com

There have not been any randomized-controlled trials, the gold standard to prove cause and effect, that looked at the effects of a vegetarian or vegan diet on pregnancy. However, a 2015 review of 22 observational studies on vegan and vegetarian pregnancies discovered no increase in major birth defects or other serious problems in offspring or mothers. The 2015 review, published in BJOG, an international journal of obstetrics and gynecology, included only healthy women. The authors said more research is needed to determine whether expecting women who have certain health conditions can safely continue a plant-based diet.

I’M A LITTLE VEGAN — “GOING VEGAN HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER…”

http://www.eveningecho.ie

“I was vegetarian since I was a child and then became vegan as an adult for ethical reasons.“There is an abundance of information and helpful websites out there. Try and find a vegan blog or page that you can relate to and enjoy following and then contact them directly and ask for some guidance. “I love receiving messages from people looking to go vegan. It’s why I set up ‘I’m A Little Vegan’ all those years ago. “I have a shelf of large screw top jars that I keep topped up with all my basic grains, nuts and seeds. “It’s usually the Quay Co-Op or Natures Choice, then for my meat-free alternatives and dairy-free butter, milk and vegan cheeses and then fresh fruit and veg weekly from the endless farmers markets around Cork.”

Vegan vs. Vegetarian Diets: How Each Will Impact Your Health

http://www.medicaldaily.com

U.S. News & World Report ranked the vegan diet No. 19 on its list of best diets overall. It also ranks in the top 10 for best weight-loss diets, best-heart-healthy diets, and best diabetes diets. Basically, vegans eliminate all animal and dairy products (also eggs) from their diet. U.S. News cited this includes anything made with gelatin, “which comes from animal bones and hooves.” Dieters instead load up on fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Since animal products are the most convenient sources of protein and iron, vegans have a hard time getting an equal fix, which isn’t to say it’s impossible. PETA cited a cup of cooked lentils and a cup of cooked black beans each pack 18 grams of protein; a veggie burger patty packs 13g of protein; while 4 ounces of firm tofu packs 11g of protein.

Vegetarian vs. vegan

https://www.washingtonpost.com

Great question! Vegetarians typically don’t eat meat, poultry or fish. What about dairy and eggs? Vegetarians can eat eggs and consume dairy; some don’t. Health issues and other factors can draw people into vegetarianism and veganism. Being vegan is more about a person’s complete lifestyle. Vegans don’t eat anything having to do with animals — meat, dairy, fish, eggs and even honey. They typically eat vegetables and fruits, nuts, grains and seeds. Both groups may need to supplement their diets with vitamins. Vegans don’t use household items or clothes made from animals, or items tested on animals. Vegans generally feel that animals aren’t here for us to use, so leather and fur products are out.

Vegan v Vegetarian explained

https://www.iol.co.za

Like vegetarians, vegans don’t eat any meat or fish, but in addition to this, vegans also don’t eat any dairy products or any animal by products.
Durban-based nutritionist consultant, Dr Paul Palmer says the primary difference between the two diets is the degree of implementation when ethically excluding foods. “Vegetarians do not eat meat or fish, but they usually eat eggs and dairy products like milk and cheese,” explains Palmer.“Vegans do not eat any animal products at all, so they are 100% plant-based. Vegetarians still eat foods that can be labelled non-ethical while vegans will abstain from them completely.”

Vegetarianism May Be Linked To Depression, Study Suggests

https://www.forbes.com

Vegetarians and vegans may be low on the vitamins, minerals and fatty acids that are essential to neurological function. So the study may at least be a good reminder to add back what you may be lacking, either with food or with supplement. The authors, from the University of Bristol and the NIH, looked at data from 9,700 men in Britain—all were the husbands of pregnant women taking part in a long-term study on parent and child health. The men indicated whether they were vegetarian and vegan, and filled out questionnaires about the specific makeup of their typical diets.Men who were vegetarian/vegan, of which there were only 350 total (the team lumped the two groups together, since there weren't many vegans), were more likely to have depression than non-vegetarians, and more likely to have a higher depression score.

Good Vegan, Bad Vegan

https://www.nytimes.com

Nor do I endorse careless adoption of vegetarian or vegan diets for their name’s sake. A vegan who consumes no animal products can be just as unhealthy living on inappropriately selected plant foods as an omnivore who dines heavily on burgers and chicken nuggets. A vegan diet laden with refined grains like white rice and bread; juices and sweetened drinks; cookies, chips and crackers; and dairy-free ice cream is hardly a healthful way to eat. Current dietary guidelines from responsible, well-informed sources already recommend that, for health’s sake, we should all adopt a plant-based diet rich in foods that originate in the ground. These can be “fleshed out” with low-fat protein sources from animals or combinations of beans and grains. However, here too, careless food and beverage selections can result in an unhealthful plant-based diet.

Vegan Vs. Plant Based Diets Are All About The Difference In Ethics

https://www.elitedaily.com

A huge part of veganism involves cutting out all animal products from your diet, but the key word here is "part." I think the reason why most people shy away from a vegan lifestyle is because it is just that: a lifestyle. By committing to vegan culture, you're committing to a strict set of guidelines that not only affect what goes into your body, but the clothes and makeup you wear, and even how you decorate your house. It's part food, all ethics, and it's totally understandable why it can be intimidating to outsiders looking in. As demanding as it seems, abiding by the rules of veganism can offer you a ton of health benefits, as well as do some good for our planet. Going plant-based is a fantastic start, but not eating animals and actively trying to save them in all aspects of your life are two very different things.
