You want your children to be the most intelligent? Avoid vegetarianism!By Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/you-want-your-children-to-be-the-most-intelligent-avoid-vegetarianism
In families where adhere to vegetarianism or veganism, there may be children with lower levels of intelligence. This was reported by British nutritionist Emma Derbyshire in his article for the journal BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health. Doctor warns parents against falling into extremes and insists that the power of the mother must be complete and balanced.
Emma Derbyshire is confident that the rejection of food of animal origin deprives the body of important for the formation of brain substances — choline. It is contained in large quantity in meat, milk and eggs. The hope is that choline can be obtained from vegetable sources such as beans and nuts, is untenable, since in these products the content of the responsible chemical compounds is negligible.
The article Derbyshire said that without choline impossible to complete the formation of the structure of the brain and spinal cord. Expectant mothers who do not consume animal proteins, is subjected to an unborn child at serious risk. Lack of choline during pregnancy increases the risk of the unborn child from neural tube defects — which is the basis of the Central nervous system.
In March 2016 in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution, scientists from Cornell University (USA) reported that a vegetarian diet may trigger the development of cardiovascular diseases and colon cancer.
In recent years, increasingly hear the view that the rejection of animal protein is not beneficial neither for humans nor for nature. A year ago, Professor Frank Mitlohner from the University of California in Davis (USA), based on scientific facts, stated that the transition to vegetarian will not save the planet, but on the contrary, will become even more disastrous for her.
It is estimated that the share of livestock in global development of greenhouse gases is not more than 2.6%. In this case, global vegetarianism will finish Earth's ecosystem by the year 2050.
Most likely the middle of XXI century the world population will increase to 10 billion people, and land for agriculture on the planet not so much. Given this, it is much wiser to continue introducing new technologies in farming and do not endanger health.
