I respect the Mahabharata but disagree with it here, partly due to what DMBM said. Veganism these days operates more like a moral cult than anything concerned with nutritional health.
Thats the second post in a row of yours I have read with the word moral used as a derogatory term. Some people care about the suffering of animals-wimpy moralistic cult!
Anyway, nobody is going to learn anything if the forum moderaters keep deleting everything that doesn't adhere to the ANUS code.
Do your own research, most books that you find in a library that are fifteen or twenty years old are unbiased. A strict vegan diet is the healthiest in existence.
You're incorrect about veganism being healthy, at all. It's devoid in vitamin B-12. The only complete protein from a plant is soy, which has many drawbacks. Besides, soy is so low in two essential amino acids that it can not be considered a good source for them. Also, true vitamin A comes only from animal products. The plant form are carotenes, which have to be converted to retinol. There is evidence that the consumption of animal fat with carotene rich foods helps to maximize conversions. A strict vegan diet would be fairly low in vitamin A over all for this reason. Also, if you've read Weston A. Price's book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
, in which he studied isolated, "primitive" groups across the globes, you'd have learned that no population studied was 100% vegetarian. The healthiest populations got a lot of their food from the ocean, and ate a mixed diet of animal foods and plant based foods. The least healthy relied mostly on plants for their diet, however. The vegan diet is a product of modern insanity, and is antithetical to survival.
