Since foods are effectively a package deal, what is the best way to get vitamin B12 (cobalamin)?
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) supplementation can cost as little as $2 a year.
I make a similar "baggage" argument about meat in my video Food Is a Package Deal and about dairy in Plant vs. Cow Calcium. Tomorrow I'm going to get into the nitty-gritty on how much one needs on a weekly basis, and Wednesday's video-of-the-day will cover daily dosing. Or you can skip to Vitamin B12: How Much, How Often? and for background, see my blog post Vegan B12 Deficiency: Putting It into Perspective. For more on how many eggs would be required for other nutrients, see Egg Industry Blind Spot. And those with a thing for vegan bowel movement studies, see Bristol Stool Scale, Bowels of the Earth, Food Mass Transit, and Bowel Movement Frequency. And there are videos on a thousand or so other topics so please feel free to dig in!
