Veganism is malnutrtion.
Plants don't have:
Vitamins: A, B6 (pyridoxal. pyridoxamine), B12, D, F, K2
Amino acids: Creatine, Carnitine, Carnosine, Taurine
Heme-iron, CoQ10, CLA
Here are some basics on vegetarians:
Here are their problems as to why they usually quit:
Vegans are deficit in b12:
High fiber diets reduce serum half life of vitamin D3:
Vegans have weaker bones due to lower calcium intake and vitamin D3 levels:
Vegans have a worse memory compared to non vegans due to creatine deficiency in vegans:
Vegans have less gains compared to non vegans:
Vegans are deficient in omega threes:
Vegans are deficit in carnitine:
Vegans are deficient in taurine:
Vegans are deficient in iodine:
Vegans are deficient in Coenzyme Q10:
Vegans are deficient in iron due to the fact that iron from plant sources is less bioavailable than iron from meat sources:
Vegans are deficient in vitamin A:

Vegans have a lower sperm count than non vegans:
Vegans have lower testosterone than non vegans:
Veganism causes loss of libido and erectile dysfunction:
Children who are raised on strict vegan diets do not grow normally:
Children develop rickets after prolonged periods of strict vegetarian diets:
"There are some links between vegetarians and lower birthweight and earlier labour"
Effects of vitamin B12 and folate deficiency on brain development in children:
"Particular attention should be paid to adequate protein intake and sources of essential fatty acids, iron, zinc, calcium, and vitamins B12 and D. Supplementation may be required in cases of strict vegetarian diets with no intake of any animal products."
These next five are case studies:
Cerebral atrophy in a vitamin B12-deficient infant of a vegetarian mother:
Severe megaloblastic anemia in child breast fed by a vegetarian mother:
Consequences of exclusive breast-feeding in vegan mother newborn - case report:
Nutritional vitamin B12 deficiency in a breast-fed infant of a vegan-diet mother:
"We report the case of a 7 month-old girl that presented with acute anemia, generalized muscular hypotonia and failure to thrive. Laboratory evaluation revealed cobalamin deficiency, due to a vegan diet of the mother."
Most recent studies using more sensitive techniques for detecting B12 deficiency have found that 68% of vegetarians and 83% of vegans are B12 deficient, compared to just 5% of omnivores. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12816782
On paper, calcium intake is similar in vegetarians and omnivores (probably because both eat dairy products), but is much lower in vegans, who are often deficient.
Vegetarians and omnivores have similar levels of serum iron, but levels of ferritin—the long-term storage form of iron—are lower in vegetarians than in omnivores.
Fruits and Vegetables
This is significant, because ferritin depletion is the first stage of iron deficiency. Moreover, although vegetarians often have similar iron intakes to omnivores on paper, it is more common for vegetarians (and particularly vegans) to be iron deficient. For example, this study of 75 vegan women in Germany found that 40% of them were iron deficient, despite average iron intakes that were above the recommended daily allowance.
many plant foods that contain zinc also contain phytate, which inhibits zinc absorption. Vegetarian diets tend to reduce zinc absorption by about 35% compared with omniovorous diet.
Thus, even when the diet meets or exceeds the RDA for zinc, deficiency may still occur. One study suggested that vegetarians may require up to 50% more zinc than omnivores for this reason.
