Vegetarianism, and the extreme version – veganism, seems to be gaining acceptance in Western society as a healthy approach to eating. This is a worrisome turn of events, especially for our young girls.

Vitamin B12, for example, is completely missing from plant based foods and can only be obtained from consuming animal tissues.
