The latest round of stories said choline deficiencies could harm vegans' brain health

There Is No Evidence For Recent Media Plant-Based Diet Scare Stories

DR. JUSTINE BUTLER OF VIVA! SEP 4, 2019


So the media has waded in again with a scare-story about the perils of a vegan diet. This time the focus is choline, a substance found in meat and eggs – also found in beans, grains and vegetables. 

But is there any substance to the story or are the meat industry scraping the barrel?

Desperation
This smacks of desperation, the meat industry are clearly on the back foot now that there have never been so many vegans and meat sales are dropping. The study in question was published in the BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health journal, written by Nutritionist Emma Derbyshire who is a member of the Meat Advisory Panel and also a member of Choline Advisory Panels.
