Vegans take the most sick days off work due to cold, flu and minor ailments, according to a new report.
The study found that they are absent through illness for almost five days a year, which is twice the annual total of the average Briton.
And while the reasons for the high sick-day count are unclear, two-thirds of vegans admitted to taking more time off work due to minor illness in 2018 than in previous years.
The study of 1,000 office workers also revealed that vegans are three times more likely to take a trip to their GP during the cold and flu season in comparison to the average US adult.
