During the past couple of weeks there has been a media frenzy surrounding an EPIC-Oxford study that concluded that vegans have a higher risk of bone fractures. Headlines such as, "Meat-free diets linked with greater risk of breaking bones" and, "‘It is a worry’: The truth about veganism and bone health" littered news websites and flooded onto social media. Even Joe Rogan shared the study, as even though he has often criticised epidemiology that supports veganism, he clearly considers this to be damning evidence for his very public feelings towards veganism.
Listen to find out:
- Are vegans really at a 43% higher risk of fracturing bones? Especially hips fractures?
- Are we biased as vegans against studies like this, and how should we react to it?
- Is there dubious funding behind this study?
