Vegetarians got a disease named after them.

I’m not going to harp on it too much this year, but a major review was just published: 60% of vegans are B12 deficient, because they’re not regularly eating B12-fortified foods or taking B12 supplements every day, or every week. So that means yet another year of horror story, after horror story, one after another.

Vegetarians even got a disease named after them! Vegetarian’s myelopathy. People eating plant-based diets must take vitamin B12.

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.

Please consider volunteering to help out on the site.
