OXFORD, England─A meat-free diet may be bad for the brain, according to Oxford University researchers.
Those on a vegan or vegetarian diet are six times more likely to have brain shrinkage due to lack of vitamin B12.
"This study suggests that simply adjusting our diets to consume more Vitamin B12 through eating meat, fish, fortified cereals or milk may...prevent brain shrinkage and so perhaps save our memory," said study researcher Anna Vogiatzoglou. "Research shows that Vitamin B12 deficiency is a public health problem, especially among the elderly, so more Vitamin B12 intake could help reverse this problem."
