Abraham Lincoln wisely noted that you can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.
The same principle applies to many things in life, including diet.
A recent study suggests that adopting a vegan diet can help with everything from anxiety to fatigue. And there is a good chance that it can do exactly that, for most people, at least as a short-term program.
The thing is this: diets are individual, and not everyone thrives on a totally vegan diet. Some people do well and can credit vegan diets with dramatic reductions in symptoms. Others, though, follow vegan diets and experience extreme fatigue, brain fog, intestinal problems and other issues.
I think Abe was right, in more ways than one: vegan diets are good for some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.
