Dr Frankie Phillips, a dietitian from the British Dietetic Association, said vegetarians and vegans should not be alarmed by the results, stressing that the study does not show cause and effect.

“That doesn’t necessarily mean becoming completely vegan or vegetarian,” she said, adding that having a wide range of foods in the diet ensured it provided all the necessary nutrients.
