The fact still remains that the other 1% of what the diet is made up of, can make a massive difference nutritionally.

Say for example that 1% was sushi fish or raw goats milk once a week, then that would change the nutritional composition of a "vegan" diet significantly.

You'd be boosting all these typical vegan nutrient deficiencies such as b12, zinc, omega-3/DHA, iodine, iron, calcium, certain amino acids etc that the research finds vegans are at risk of.

Or these "ethical eggs i get from my friends farm" which seems to be another common vegan excuse. Have these people forgot, vegans don't eat animal foods.

At the end of the day, no matter where you go or travel in the world these days, there is pretty much always at the very bare minimum a vegetarian dish on offer.

There is typically always other vegan foods served on airplanes etc some fruit, nuts etc that should get you through a 3 hour flight etc, if veganism really means that much to your belief system.

So why are these individuals as staunch promoters of the vegan diet, radiating towards eating animal foods ?

I mean if you can't handle a 3 hour flight without some sushi, there is something wrong.

As to your post, i will have a read of the thread. I agree fully about the genetic part, ive done the genetic/DNA testing for myself and i am no compatible with strict vegan diets.

But then is anybody truly compatible with strict plant based diets, let alone 100% raw ?

Not according to the scientific research anyway, or the practical experience of tens of thousands who jumped on the vegan fad, or common sense or logic would dictate otherwise.
