Vegans take their sick days off from work due to colds, flu and minor ailments, according to a new report.

The research showed that they are ill for almost five days a year, which is twice the annual total of the average Briton.

And although the reasons for the high number of sick days are unclear, two-thirds of vegans in 2018 gave more time to work because of a mild illness than in previous years.

In contrast, only half of their meat-eating counterparts reported taking the same amount of leisure time as a year earlier, while one in three said they had taken less.

The study of 1,000 office workers also revealed that vegans are three times more likely to travel to their GP during the cold and flu season compared to the average British adult.

They tend to book 2.6 appointments to consult the doctor, in contrast to the national average of only 0.7 visits.

The findings, which were part of the annual cold and flu surveys of the Fisherman & # 39; s Friend, also revealed that employees in the millennium take three times more time off work than those over 55, while employees in Nottingham, London and Norwich take most days off.
