    1. Vegans had higher testosterone levels than vegetarians and meat-eaters, but this was offset by higher sex hormone binding globulin, and there were no differences between diet groups in free testosterone, androstanediol glucuronide or luteinizing hormone.

      In other words, vegans have higher total, but not free/unbound, testosterone.

    1. Vegans had the highest intakes of fibre, vitamin B1, folate, vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium and iron, and the lowest intakes of retinol, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium and zinc.

      Of note, vegans consume more iron. Since non-heme iron absorption is regulated (i.e. titrated in proportion to stores), this does not mean vegans absorb more iron. Importantly, however, it does translate into no greater risk of anemia for vegans as compared to meat eaters.
