It all makes sense now... :D

Is veganism a mental disorder?

What exactly might explain this bizarre behavior?

Consider one theory: Our bodies require Vitamin B12 for proper brain function. Vitamin B12 is only found naturally in animal products. It’s possible to get it through supplements, but as many as 92 percent of vegans are deficient in B12, according to the Daily Mail. (Vegans are also at risk of deficiencies in iron, calcium and omega-3s.)

And as one nutritionist recently explained to the paper, Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to “fatigue, megaloblastic anemia, early dementia, increased risk of heart disease, nerve dysfunction, forgetfulness, lack of coordination, and psychiatric disorders.”

Well, that explains a lot.

The “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” suggests, “A mental disorder is a syndrome characterized by clinically significant disturbance in an individual’s cognition, emotion regulation, or behavior that reflects a dysfunction in the psychological, biological, or developmental processes underlying mental functioning.” Could veganism fit the bill?

Vegetarians are unhealthy and ‘mentally disturbed’, says new research

A study from the University of Graz says that contrary to popular opinion, vegetarian and vegan diets don’t make people healthier. In fact it found that vegetarians are ill more often, more susceptible to physical and mental disorders and generally have a lower quality of life than people who eat meat. They’re more at risk of cancer, have more heart attacks and are more likely to suffer from psychological disorders.

This is laughably poor research, and I could write a novel about how confused you are. I wish I could just transfer all my knowledge to people instantly, because I don't have time for that, and unfortunately there are consequences for your shameless ignorance.

I'm just going to comment on the first point that is completely false, so you can get an idea about how confused and/or wrong everything you said is.
"Vitamin B12 is only found naturally in animal products."

No, it isn't, you unforgivable retard. It's found just about everywhere in the natural world, particularly soil (that in the natural world, would give us plenty of B12 if we were eating unwashed veggies). B12 is sourced from BACTERIA. That's why it's found in animal products. But even animals have to be supplemented with B12.

Furthermore, many meat eaters are deficient in B12, they just don't realize it.

EVERYONE should be taking a B12 supplement - animal products are NOT a reliable source of B12. And just gonna say that EVERYONE over 50 needs to take B12 supplements regardless of diet. Are you going to say everyone over 50 is insane now?

And to make this brief, I will just add that you really need to be more careful about your sources. The Daily Mail is not a reliable source in the slightest. :lol:

Go back to school and then try this again.

It appears that a lack of nutrition also causes emotional outbursts and erratic stupidity.
Apparently, yes. You are all clearly severely deficient in glucose and B12, as well as brain cells. I would feel sorry for you but you've brought it on yourselves.
