Just curious if you're all aware...I had been anemic since age 11...on iron pills, told to eat more meat etc. Nothing REALLY helped me, yeah the supplements did something but not for long. Anyway, I can't remember the exact time but a few years ago I saw a PETA video and ended up going vegan for ethical reasons, thinking my health was going to suffer because of not eating meat for iron. My reasoning was that my health was not more important than the cows or the chickens etc. as we are all sentient beings.
So, two months into going haphazardly and staunchly vegan, as in, eating tofu and french fries and cereal and soymilk etc...I went to the doctor to get my blood tested. Well, guess what? My iron levels were ABOVE AVERAGE. And they have been at a good level at the other tests I have done later on. And my friends, this was JUNK FOOD vegan, with no attention to nutrition at all. In fact, I barely even ate greens to my memory.
VEGANISM CURED MY ANEMIA.
