The very real and potentially disastrous effects of vitamin B12 deficiency.
Before vegans get cocky, though… Floppy ears… are cute on a bunny. Not so cute on your spinal cord. The inverted rabbit ear sign. See how it kinda looks like an upside down bunny with floppy ears? Well, that’s not what your spinal cord’s supposed to look like. Why did this woman have spastic ataxic quadriparesis, a sensory polyneuropathy, and diffuse spinal cord swelling? Because, she was a strict vegetarian lady. I assume they mean strictly vegetarian? Then again maybe she was just quite the disciplinarian. Either way, people eating plant-based diets must take vitamin B12.
Reports continue to pour in from all over the world, whether you’re a vegetariana estricta a strehng veganeh, or eating vay-jay-tah-lee-yeh, you’d have to be crazy not getting your B12. Literally. 31 year old stock trader turned paranoid psychotic—but not because he was schizophrenic. Because he was vegan, and didn’t eat vitamin B12 fortified foods or take a B12 supplement. Suffered for 3 years before his doctors figured it out.
Kiss me I’m vegan. No thank you. 41 year old woman, vegan for two and a half years without B12. Kiss a vegetarian and taste the difference Before, And after she took her B12. Cleared up in no time. Vegans taste better, when they take their B12.
