„You could never go without eating meat forever!“ „How in the world do you get protein as a vegan or vegetarian?“ „Humans are carnivores-we need meat!“ How many of these wonderful statements have you heard before that BASH the name of vegans or vegetarians?

What do you think of when you hear the words „raw-foodist“? Do you even know what that term means or do some other choice words come to mind?

Plant-based diets contain no reliable sources of vitamin B12. Vegetarians who also consume milk get some B12, but eggs are not a reliable source. Vegetarians and vegans must insure sufficient intake with dairy, B12 supplements, and/or by consuming foods fortified with B12.
