  1. “The results of Global Burden of Disease study state age-standardized CVD death rate of 272 per 100000 population in India which is much higher than that of global average of 235”

    Sounds like 15-16% above average and not 20-50% higher than any other nation (aka at least 20% above the secon ranked country)

    Edit: Though i do see the claim from the title in the conclusions… I wonder how to combine these two statments

  2. The percentage of vegetarians in Indians is quite low, many are non-vegetarians. But yes, even their consumption of meat is nowhere equal to that of the western countries. As to the cardiovascular disease mortality rates, blame it on sedentary living +pollution+adulterated food+ low knowledge of nutrition standards required for an adult over 35

  3. The thing is, I love meat and even if the results were opposite I wouldn’t care enough to stop eating it.

    BUT, the OP peddles this stuff every day and pushes only articles and research that support his extreme meat diet and the online persona he’s trying to create. That makes his stuff propaganda, even when this particular article is also correct.
