A group of psychologists from The University of Southern Indiana investigated the characteristics of the psyche of meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans to determine which of them is healthier mentally. It turned out that those who refuse meat food are more likely to suffer from various anxiety syndromes, stress and depression. The results of the scientific work were published in the journal PsyPost and caused a lot of controversy both in scientific circles and in the camp of plant food lovers.

Doctor of Psychology Urska Dobersek, who participated in the project, claims that people with mental disorders can help themselves by changing their nutrition systems in accordance with their well-being. A vegan and vegetarian diet can cause a lack of nutrients, which will lead to an exacerbation of the disease.Dobersek also reported that people with eating disorders can use veganism to mask their illness. Many patients who are sensitive to the suffering of animals and fixate on it also get relief when they are sure that their food has nothing to do with the murder.

In the course of the work, respondents were identified who had adhered to veganism for a long time, but then returned to meat consumption. So far, psychologists cannot answer the question why this happened and whether the desire to get rid of depression or feelings of anxiety was the reason for such radical changes. Work in this direction continues in The University of Southern Indiana plans to complete a full analysis by the end of this year.
