Such a high percentage of fear
Of the 55,000 people involved in this study, 2,000 were vegetarian. Research has found that people who do not consume meat are 43 percent more likely to get fractures. The study found that these participants had a total of 3,941 fractures over the course of 18 years, with the largest difference being found in hip fractures. Vegetarian people had a 2.3 times higher risk of hip fracture than non-vegetarian people.
The study, led by Dr. Tommy Tong, a new epidemiologist at the Newfield Department of Population Health, has been published in the BMC Medicine Journal.
More danger of fracture in a decade
The study also revealed that non-veg people have 20 more cases of fracture in a decade than non-veg eaters.
At the same time, in addition to the highest risk of hip fracture, those taking Vegan diet are also at greater risk of fracture in other important places like foot fractures, wrists, ribs, hands. However, it is still not clear whether the reason behind the fracture is weak or deteriorating bones or accident.
However, a balanced vegetarian diet with lots of fruits and green vegetables can improve the level of nutrients in the body and it also increases the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.
