Podcaster and comedian Joe Rogan said most vegans go back to eating meat because of health issues in a recent podcast.

The keen hunter added that humans are natural omnivores, and said it is a ‘hard road’ living off plants alone.

Rogan did not make the assertion based on any data – and in fact, asked his researcher to see if such information exists.*
