High meat diet increases heart disease risk
Finnish researchers found another reason to limit animal produts: High dietary methionine intake increases the risk of acute coronary events in middle-aged men. Foods that are highest in methionine include fish and meat.
This is especially interesting since the fact that vegan diets are lower in methionine is often mentioned as a risk factor. We even genetically modify soybeans to give them more methionine to "improve their nutritional quality". Healthy vegan diets have adequate methionine, but not too much.
