Vegan Cons

Just a regularly updated page on counter points to the vegan diet. Based off an original Reddit thread.



Nutrition
Ethics
  1. it is food that humans can't consume and is much less regulated.

  2. animals are fed left-overs, crop failures or byproducts that don't fulfill human consumption standards.

Socioeconomics
Environment
  1. is bullshit that vegans keep on parroting. It originates from an article calling humans herbivores.

  2. doesn't quantify how many animals are actually given B12.

  3. doesn't make much sense because cows can usually be supplemented cobalt directly instead of B12 (which is made from cobalt). Their gut flora also destroys most of synthetic B12.
