Sorry i forgot to address the part about the article you linked on the B12.

Yes i read the whole article you provided, unlike most others around here, i will take the effort to read what people kindly take the time to post up.

The article was well written, even informative at times, but overall let down by the bias vegan logic that most people will still not resonate with, despite that being her sole intention of the article.

So no, i don't agree with her reasons or "excuses" as i call them. I have read an absolute wealth of the vitamin B12 dietary studies to know her reasoning is invalid.

Also vitamin B12 is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to veganism.

If B12 really was the only problematic nutrient associated with eating strict plant based vegan diets then it wouldn't be half as bad.

But what about DHA, vitamin D, conditionally essential amino acids such as taurine, carnitine, copper/zinc imbalances, iodine(if your not eating sea vegetables) etc ?

Is the inability of a strict plant based vegan diet to provide these nutrients all caused because of sterility, changes in our environment and germophobia lol ?

She says "it is likely eating soiled and bacterial contaminated plant foods would provide all the B12 needed".

Well firstly this is just COMPLETE assumption from her part. She is not basing her theory on any science or data whatsoever. It is purely her assumption and romantic theory that we'd get all the B12 we need eating soiled veggies etc.

Tell that to the thousands of people who grow their own organic plant foods in high quality mineral rich soil and still suffer from B12 deficiency as a vegan.

Its ironic that this sterility hasn't affected omnivores B12 levels, just the vegans.

As to your comparison of wild animals and that they don't suffer from B12 defieincy.

We are not wild animals, we are humans. Wild animals eat b12 rich insects, not to mention the bacteria rich fecal matter of other animals.

Again its completely irrelevant to compare ourselves to wild animals.
