According to this article on Gizmodo by Jamie Condliffe, a study carried out at Deakin University in Victoria, Australia, confirmed that those that don't eat red meat have a higher risk of being clinically depressed.
According to Professor Felice Jacka, one of the researchers:
"Even when we took into account the overall healthiness of the women's diets, as well as other factors such as their socioeconomic status, physical activity levels, smoking, weight and age, the relationship between low red meat intake and mental health remained.
And as Condliffe so lovingly puts it:
Official proof, if it were needed, that vegetarians are a bunch of sadsacks. While there's plenty of evidence that suggests that the quality of your diet is important for mental health, this is the first study to suggest that red meat has a positive effect. Sadly, the researchers have no idea why.
And while eating meat will still kill you early, you'll be dead with a smile on your face.
