    Pretty misleading study. It makes you think that it's healthy to be a vegetarian.

    Did you notice they said the Veggies had a lower BMI? Meaning they were skinny and weak. To bad they don't measure lean body mass or body fat percentage instead of BMI.

    How many of the non-vegetarians were weight trained, regular exercisers?

    I read that they specifically looked at incidence because mortality has already been shown to be the same. So it looks like non-vegetarians may be more likely to get IHD but also more likely to survive it. Also after adjusting for BMI the risk is 28% less yet they keep touting the 32% number. Only someone with an agenda would do that. I can't look at any of the actual data without paying $40. Screw that.
