B12

Ah…B12. You have no idea how tired I am of this argument. This is the first thing carnists go to when they don’t know anything about plant based nutrition and the last thing they actually know anything about. For the record, everyone gets b12 from the same place regardless of whether they eat meat or not, they get it from here;

Yes, before you make your argument your distaste for supplements and the “lack” of b12 in a Vegan diet- the animals you’re eating were given supplements. The way I see it; it makes much more sense medically to cut out the third party completely, and especially considering meat is scientifically proven to cause a large sum of medical issues.

Personally I consume nutritional yeast, its really good and has 500% b12 per 3 tbsp (along with 9g protein and many other important nutrients). I have friends that take 5mg of b12 by pill a day and that’s fine too! My mother takes them as well and she eats meat, I  know quite a few carnists that do. Besides this, about 40% of America is b12 deficient and only 3.2% are Vegan.. So is it even specifically our issue anyway?
