Haha, cool. I love science.

Sidepost
Just read the article (letter to the editor?) about meat and mood/anxiety. It's quite common for people experiencing mood shifts like depression/dysthymia to have changes in appetite - particularly in how much they eat (sometimes eating far more, or more commonly eating far less than usual). So I just wonder whether the "low meat intake" lead to greater "likelihood of depression" is really just "people diagnosed with depression eat less (including less meat)".

Vegan article seems like better quality - reasonable measures. Would have been cool to see larger sample size for that many analysis. Could be so many other factors at play here too (food prep time, less money spent on food, lighter meals...) would be really cool to check out further.
