Its not relevant though Gina, no diet should have to be reliant on expensive supplements just in order to provide basic essential nutrients.

Many people don't have the luxury of being able to afford all these supplements that are required to cover the cracks in a deficient strict vegan diet. Try telling that to a family of 4 on welfare, that they can't eat a healthy diet or be healthy without buying all these supplements. Its nonsense, im sorry.

Also if these supplements such as vitamin B12 were banned for general sale, you'd be stuffed. You wouldn't even able to experiment with these strict vegan diets in the short term. Which shows how heavily reliant you are on synthetic supplements.

You mention people who eat produce full of pesticides and factory farmed food, the ironic bit here is that these individuals seem to be significantly healthier than any so-called raw vegans tha we are coming across. Most of these raw vegans, last less than a few months strictly following the diet.

As i said in the last post its not normal or healthy, for a diet to be so heavily reliant on supplements, just to provide basic essential nutrients such as vitamin B12, vitamin D or omega-3 fats such as DHA.

A healthy diet is meant to naturally supply all the basic nutrients we need to live.

As such you will never convince the majority of individuals that a strict vegan diet is a healthy, sustainable or safe diet to follow, when in the same breath you have to convince these people to buy all these supplements, in order to paper over the many deficient cracks in the vegan diet.

Each to their own Gina, im not here to argue either, my day would be much easier not having to defend my every second post to people like yourself or John Rose, whenever my posts go against your engrained belief systems.
