Wow pal, I didn't realize that you were the ultimate authority on nutrition and health. Do you know how to actually handle objective debates?
I would begin by reading "how not to die" by Dr Greger. The back third of the book is just filled with cited sources. While you're waiting on your book I would peruse his website that he has poured his whole career into and takes no profit from. Additionally, Mic The Vegan is a science based YouTuber who will walk you through specific studies that give us evidence of people thriving MORE so on a vegan diet. If you need to focus more on what you CAN eat and not what you're eliminating, Id recommend Simnett Nutrition. I also really like Caitlyn Shoemaker but she is not a doctor or a nutritionist. She is a talented recipe curator but still sticks to a pretty healthy, balanced diet.
Wikipedia huh? It's kinda funny you expect me to take you seriously when not even my middle school teacher would find that as an acceptable reference to a topic I know nothing about.
> This data also suggest that globally in 2010 heart diseases are also the first killer
This article mentions mortality rates, and doesn't specifally focus on cardiovascular disease rates.
From the article:
> The leading causes of death for men in this age group, however, were cardiovascular diseases, road traffi c injuries, and HIV/AIDS, with other major causes including suicide and interpersonal violence
> Ischaemic heart disease data table: 11,17,16,17 for African countries.
So why don't you quote what I said and see if that fits into this last little tid bit
Here are some takeaways:
"Which foods contain the most cholesterol? Eggs, fish, chicken, and red meat all earn the red light..."
"As for saturated fat, desserts, dairy, and snack foods are all designated as red light, with eggs, chicken, fish, and red meat getting the yellow light. Most of the saturated fat in the American diet comes from cheese (8.5%), pizza (5.9%), grain-based desserts (5.8%), dairy desserts (5.6%), and chicken (5.5%)."
"Salt levels are highest in lunch meat and snack foods, which both get a red light."
"...The more plant-based we get, apparently, the better."
Conclusion: Meat is bad, ultra processed foods are bad, and plant based diets are healthiest. Based on your comment alone, sounds like both Dr. Klurfeld and the WHO scientists are biased, whereas that book provides references to each and every claim that has science backing it. It's not rocket science, it's no surprise at all to find cholesterol, sodium, saturated fats, etc. are in meat and processed foods.
Another studied suggests that meat intake increases levels of arachidonic acid, which is another mediator in inflammation and aging.
Those are just a couple of studies. There are plenty more where they came from. I highly suggest reading 'How Not to Die' by Dr. Michael Greger, to all those that are interested in way of reducing inflammation in the body. The book is incredibly well referenced, and a joy to read. 
Everyone changes over time, sometimes drastically so, and this often leads to incompatibility in relationships. It's one thing if you were suddenly into fitness while your partner wanted to sit on the couch, but with veganism it's actually a moral issue. I don't see how people can stay with a partner who doesn't share the same sense of right and wrong. If you don't want to end things then at the very least I'd make it extremely clear that you don't appreciate the jokes and will not tolerate them.
>so while the health claims of FOK are up for debate...
Check out this book if you want to read about health and veganism.
Sweet, I'm an engineer who just graduated from a data science bootcamp to try and switch careers. My favorite resource is How Not to Die . It actually has a chapter on the mental health aspect of a whole-foods, plant-based diet.
Hej! För det första så är det otroligt mycket olika kostråd som slängs runt på internet, ofta helt motsatta varandra, såsom vegan vs keto, etc. Jag skulle starkt rekommendera att vara källkritisk och göra egen research.
Här har du kostråd från Livsmedelsverket och WHO, jävligt trovärdiga källor MAO.
Dessa guidelines brukar dock vara lite för "snälla" tycker jag. De säger till exempel att "det är bra om man minskar köttkonsumptionen", medans det bästa ju vore att sluta äta kött helt. Man skriver det man tror är realistiskt uppnåeligt av befolkningen, snarare än det som är optimalt.

This is a very good book on the topic:
It's hard to apply everything but it really opens your eyes on the health benefits of healthy eating.
This is relatively new in terms of medical diagnoses in the last few years. http://www.sporkful.com/may-contain-nuts-pt-1-alpha-gal-returns/ kind of goes through it, but so does http://www.radiolab.org/story/alpha-gal/ in better detail if you're into podcasts at all.
The timing of that seems to coincide. 2012 was when the first few articles started appearing about the ticks and the 'meat allergy' they cause and there wasn't a whole lot of supporting research at the time. If that was the case, you're really lucky you didn't go into anaphylactic shock, but I'd be willing to bet you had some sort of autoimmune disease since your pregnancy seems to have reset it.
If you're going back to veg, there are a few meal services now out there for vegans and vegetarians that function like Blue Apron etc. that give you a little bit of menu variety without having to plan it all out.
I also passive aggressively leave this book out for my family when they're visiting so that they understand where we're coming from with diet decisions. It's so much easier to stay on a diet when it's directly tied to how well you feel.
>But for someone like me who already eats healthy
I doubt you're eating healthy (or as healthy as a plant-based diet) if you're still consuming animal products. I used to believe the same thing because I was eating a lot of chicken and salmon. There's just an overwhelming amount of evidence that a whole-food, plant-based diet is superior. Check out the book How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger. He cites thousands of studies you can take a look at if you're interested.

The fact that it helped so much deeply disturbed me. When I was tired I would just have cup of coffee. Sometimes I still do, but simply having an “RX Bar” or some almonds can be just as powerful. That’s the level of effect we’re talking about here. In ancient history a topic that came up again and again was that many emotions originated in the stomach. I can see how they might have gotten this.
Also for dietary advice in general recommend the book “How Not To Die”. It’s a good book, but the extreme ethical standards of the author and his desire not to get involved in the fitness industry make it even better than usual. It’s good for general diet advice as well as also preventing the chronic diseases which are so hard to treat after a certain point.
How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease https://www.amazon.com/dp/1250066115/
in general nutrition seems to play a vital role.
How not to die speaks about this at lengths - Fantastic Book Btw
You may find these books 1 , 2 , 3 and 4 quite interesting.
As a nutrition researcher myself, I also have high standards for information sources and get so frustrated by all the bullshit out there. I've worked on all sorts of protocols, including keto ones, and there's few benefits and some harm to be had from following keto diet if not epileptic (yeah- go ahead and shoot me now lol) but somehow it's become commingled with fasting for health. Anyways. Some science for you:
(Great overview of why fasting)
https://toptalkedbooks.com/amzn/1780721676 (by one of the first doctors to publicize fasting)
(More like funny memoir of experience with fasting and a layperson's understanding of the science)
(In a few months should be available- brilliantly researched)
(Not solely on fasting but so comprehensively researched that I highly recommend it - everybody should read it. Truly and literally life changing)
(Not a book, but some good info)
