We are told vegetables are powerful and virtuous—they fight off cancer, sweep our colon clean, and strengthen our immune system. Yet vegetables don't want to be eaten any more than animals do, and they use chemical weapons to defend themselves.
My critique of the EAT-Lancet report reveals that their arguments for the planetary shift to a plant-based diet are inconsistent, unscientific, and downplay the serious risks to life and health posed by vegan diets.
Do vegetarian and vegan diets contain the micronutrients our brains need to function properly? What are the most important potential brain nutrient deficiencies that ALL plant-eaters need to be aware of?
