This is another count against meat. It's funny how to most people, one study about vegetarianism leading to a small decrease in bone density or some other insignificant result is enough to help them conclude that they need to stay a meat eater, but the whole list of studies that show how meat eating leads to early death and a lower quality of life falls on deaf ears.
