You
From your perspectives, downfalls may include low 
vitamin D /
Me:
In T. Colin Campbell’s plant-based certificate 
course Dr. Lederman (Forks Over Knives, MD) gave a 
lecture on this and said that evidence suggests
that 
sunshine is the best source. Tanning beds which 
allow the right UV rays are also good in the winter 
time or supplement if in Norther latitudes during 
winter.
You
DHA (I think Victor Van Epps made videos on these), 
some people needing more EFAs (nuts, seeds, 
avocados, olives)
Me:
Dr. Rick Dina and other studies have shown that 
humans can synthesize DHA from Omega 3’s in flax, 
chia and greens.
There is very little EFA’s in many nuts and seeds 
suprrisingly except walnuts, chia, flax and 
sunflower and some others. Most nuts and seeds are 
high in saturated fats (believe it or not like 
Brazil nuts and macademia nuts), mono unsaturated 
fats (which are implicated in heart disease just as 
much as saturated fats are and these fats are also 
in avocadoes which have very little EFA’s). See
Jeff 
Novick’s DVD on from Nuts to Oil where he breaks 
down the percentages in a very scientific way.
You
/eating more calories than required (in your 
opinions),
Me:
Absolutely. I am 5’2” and burn on a sedentary day 
1700 cals and on an active day 3200. So if I ate 
2500 cals a day every day then I’d be in trouble.
You:
not consuming enough veg (potentially problematic 
for some),
Me:
Yes. There are minerals in vegetables that we can’t 
find in quantity in most fruits.
You:
low 
B12 (remedied with a B12 sublingual supplement).
Me:
Absolutely. I don’t take sub-lingual. Dr. Lederman 
talked about this in his lecture, too and the 
evidence and my own blood tests convinced me to 
supplement. Dr. Rick Dina has some GREAT videos on 
this topic.
You:
Is there 
anything else? Possibly zinc / magnesium / iodine 
etc,
Me:
Track what you eat in Cronometer and see which
foods 
have those nutrients. Again I have been loving Rick 
Dina’s videos and he showed how cauliflower and
chia 
seeds are nutrient-rich powerhouses of those foods.
You:
Why are there links by those who didn’t choose to 
remedy their issues by vegan means? Some people
will 
do an about turn and give up on a vegan diet,
rather 
than addressing their nutritional requirements with 
it.
Me:
Social pressures play a big part in this. Ignorance 
and not knowing nutrition is another part. They may 
have been junk food vegan or went raw and didn’t 
like vegetables, etc. They may not be ill so not 
very motivated to continue.
Beans and nuts/seeds are also high in many
nutrients 
but I don’t feel my best eating those so I’d rather 
eat lots of veggies which balance me out anyways.
I think emotional poise is HUGE and often 
overlooked.
I made this video showing how stress can actually 
raise our cholesterol. It stands to reason that it 
also uses up our nutrient stores as well.

Hope that helps. :)
