To most people, it is clear we were meant to eat meat. This makes it even more clear. A new report indicates that vegans call off sick from work twice as many times as their meat-eating counterparts.

According to this report from the UK, vegans are sickly. This was from a survey of over 1,000 office workers and part of an annual cold and flu survey by Fisherman's Friend. Not only are they more sickly, but they are also more than twice as likely to go see a general practitioner.

Per the Scottish Sun:

[Vegans] were also three times more likely to visit the GP.

Vegans reportedly booking 2.6 appointments to see the doctor during the cold and flu season, compared to the national average of 0.7.

Two-thirds of vegans also admitted to taking more time off work due to illness in 2018 than in previous years.

Meanwhile half of meat eaters said they took the same amount of time off, and a third actually reckoned they took less time off in 2018.

In another aspect of the survey it determined that millennials take more time off of work compared to Boomers. It's also probably a safe bet that more millennials are vegans when compared to Boomers.

Wellness Force even did a study on the science of why vegans get sick.
