Long term Oxford University study - 55,000 volunteers of which 2,000 are vegans looked at over 18 years - concluded that there is a 43% higher risk of fractured bones, especially in the hip region, on a vegan diet compared to meat and dairy eating.

You would have thought they could have found an xray of a broken bone rather than a knee replacement.

I think many vegans have plenty exercise but they will be lacking calcium in their diet and more likely to be underweight which means thinner bones.

I was about to point out that you don't meet many vegans at the rugby club and I don't suppose they are into wrestling, boxing etc.

Oddly enough veganism is quite popular among sports people including Venus and Serena Williams, Virat Kohli and David Haye the boxer to say nothing of our favourite F1 star
