Omnivore vs. Vegan Nutrient Deficiencies October 9, 2019 89 By Ewald Bahringer CategoryArticles BlogTagsAbsorption bone fractures bone health calcium dairy EPIC Study fiber Folate iodine magnesium milk omnivores osteoporosis plant-based diets vegans vegetarians vitamin B12 vitamin C vitamin E 89 Comments Red Baron Farm says: May 23, 2012 at 3:11 pm Typical fallacy of comparing a healthy mostly balanced Vegan diet to a SAD junk food diet. If you make a fair comparison, you find out that Vegans really can get ALMOST all the nutrients they need without supplements (except children who need more), and a balanced diet including animal products has NO deficiencies at all. That also depends on the quality of the food sources for both Vegan and a balanced diet. The main nutrients lacking or low in a Vegan diet are B-12 and EPA/DHA. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 7:45 pm What is the RDA of EPA/DHA? What are the deficiency symptoms? What is the level of toxicity for EPA/DHA? Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 29, 2012 at 8:29 pm I don't think there is a RDA. There could be, I just don't know of one. It takes years to become deficient though (except for children) so a daily allowance is actually kind of silly. The symptoms of long term deficiency are everything from scattered thinking, sterility, retinitis pigmentosa, paralysis, dementia, heart disease, Alzheimer's etc. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm Okay, so the minimum required amount to avoid deficiency symptoms are unknown. But, in what amounts are EPA/DHA toxic? What are the symptoms of EPA/DHA toxicity? There is also evidence published in scientific journals that the ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids could actually have a greater impact on health than the amount of omega-3 ingested independent of omega-6. In your opinion, are there any reasons to consider these ideas? Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 29, 2012 at 9:10 pm The conversion rate of plant sourced short chain ALA to long chain DHA is 0-9% in humans. But the n-6 to n-3 ratio can further reduce that another 40% if you get too much n-6 and go past a 4-1 ratio. Men also have about a 4% lower conversion rate than women. I didn't say the levels for deficiency are unknown, I said I personally don't know what they are. I also don't know if there even is a toxic level on the high end. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 9:18 pm If you don't know the minimum amount required to avoid deficiency and you don't know the level of toxicity how can you know which diets provide amounts that fall between deficiency and toxicity levels? Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 29, 2012 at 9:28 pm Well its pretty easy isn't it? 0% comes from plants. So if your conversion rate is low either due to genetics or an improper n-6 to n-3 ratio from your diet, and all you eat is plants, you will end up deficient once your reserves run out. (unless you supplement) It doesn't take an Einstein to figure that one out. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 9:50 pm The lowest conversion rate that I've found from ALA to DHA was 0.5%, but I couldn't find the minimum recommended amount or toxicity levels for DHA either. I guess that is why I don't state that particular diets are deficient or toxic in DHA. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 29, 2012 at 10:10 pm You want me to look for you? I don't worry about it myself because I eat fish about once a month. But hey, if you are concerned, I would be happy to try and find more detailed information. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 10:16 pm I guess I was trying to find a polite way of expressing an idea without using the word charlatan. Go easy on the mercury intake too. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 29, 2012 at 11:17 pm Yeah mercury is an issue. Of course you realise the main source is agricultural run off from plowing the land. Mono culture row crops are the single most ecologically destructive thing we industrialised nations do to this planet. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 29, 2012 at 11:36 pm Barcelo-Coblijn and Murphy (2009) published an extensive article in which they looked numerous refereed journal articles dealing with conversion of ALA to DHA and EPA, and the effect that ALA has on plasma lipid levels and the subsequent effect ALA has on cardiovascular disease. They concluded that consumption of ALA was not only able to fulfill the requirement for DHA, but also that ALA exerts identical effects as does DHA in a number of different physiological processes.

Barceló-Coblijn G, Murphy EJ.Prog Lipid Res. 2009 Nov;48(6):355-74. Epub 2009 Jul 18 Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 12:10 am OK then. Since you at least read the abstract, do you want to rephrase your first post? This time without the obvious fallacies and slants? Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 30, 2012 at 12:11 am To be candid, I cut and pasted the summary from Dr. Wayne Coates website that was selling chia, and I do not know where to find more than the abstract for the article. But, I'm sure that you get your info from fish oil salespersons. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 12:15 am That's ok. There is enough in the abstract for you to see yourself. Read it very closely and see for yourself how it was slanted. It is a subtle rewording but I am confident if you try, you can spot it. Might help you spot propaganda from any source in the future. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 30, 2012 at 12:28 am From the abstract: "…[R]emoval of dietary ALA promotes n-3 fatty acid inadequacy, including that of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and that many experiments demonstrate that dietary inclusion of ALA raises n-3 tissue fatty acid content, including DHA." You should read every sentence. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 12:43 am Yep that's part of it. You found one. Now try to find more. Keep going you will see more. Then compare it to your first post. It's a bit subtle, but I am sure you'll begin to see. I have confidence in you Hopy! Read it like a scientist would! Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 1:24 am OK It's been 1/2 and hour and still no reply so I'll give you a hint. In the sidebar is a link called "see reviews" click it and go to "alpha-Linolenic acid supplementation and conversion to n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in humans." Read that and then read the first study again. Compare the wording. If you still don't get it, I will spell it out for you. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: June 30, 2012 at 1:41 am That study was done on "adults consuming western diets". Are "western diets" high or low in n-6? … I think you're cracking up. You are trying to use one study to refute the one that threatened your belief system. You are not using the original abstract to prove that Dr. Wayne Coates' summary of it is inaccurate. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 1:50 am Awe man! You missed it! And I had such confidence in you! I was sure you found it when you quoted "removal of dietary ALA" And I gave you a strong hint with the "alpha-Linolenic acid supplementation". The actual studies don't contradict. What they are saying in essence is that we humans need dietary sources of both ALA (primarily plant) and DHA (primarily animal). Makes sense right? We evolved eating both, since we are omnivores. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 8:17 am I would have replied sooner but somehow your answer got marked as spam and I didn't see it.. I promise you it wasn't me that did it. I told you before, you have to think like a scientist for these studies to make sense, and read very carefully, without bias. What is happening in these studies is you have a baseline which is dietary sources of both ALA from plant and EPA/ DHA from animal. Then each one is removed and added in various combinations to see the effects on the others. Experimenting Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 8:31 am Continued: These "experiments" are carried out in various combinations both in a environment where the n-6 to n-3 ratio is balanced, and in an environment where the n-6 to n-3 ratio is high (like a western diet). When you look at the sum total of all these studies you can begin to draw some conclusions. The original meta study you quoted from was not referenced properly by the Chia selling Dr. Wayne Coates. He twisted it subtly and ever so slightly to fit his agenda. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 9:01 am But it gets a little more complicated than just that. The emergency backup system is not equal. Breaking long chain n3 into short chain n3 is pretty easy. So if there is no dietary ALA from plants DHA/EPA levels will rapidly fall as reserves are used. However, converting short chain into long chain is much harder, so if there is no dietary EPA/DHA the body first makes EPA and more slowly, only then does it start making DHA which barely meets demand (hopefully) and levels don't rise at all. Reply Red Baron Farm says: June 30, 2012 at 9:12 am So what does all THAT mean? Basically these metabolic "backup" systems are evolved to get humans through periods of scarcity. There may be little to no fruit or quality vegetation in winter or dry seasons, so humans use meat instead. There may be little to no prey in other seasons due to migrations or other factors, so humans use plants instead. But these backup systems, good as they are, are not evolved to handle very extended periods. They begin to fail unless a balanced diet is found.

Reply Lover4S3XIEE69 says: June 2, 2013 at 1:35 am I believe the Doctor is actually a vegan. so if he does say "whiny vegans" he may just be making witty comments either way he is stating facts. In other videos he shows numerous studies vegan "pitfalls". But in general he shows how eating meat is not that great. It comes with saturated fats, cholesterol, etc. But if people do not want to listen to simple facts I guess that is their choice. Consume more plants if you do not want to throw out meat Reply BLH Productions says: July 30, 2013 at 5:29 pm He leaves out zinc, vitamin D, omega 3, iron, and protein (relating to complete amino acids). The best place to get your nutrients is from food, and I can't help but notice that the problem for the meat eater seems to be not enough plants where the problem with the vegan seems to be not enough animal products. Love the as hominem picture of the fit vegan and fat meat eater. Really points out the bias. Reply BLH Productions says: July 30, 2013 at 5:33 pm May I also point out there there are few doctors and "doctors" saying how superior the vegan diet is compared to all others, which makes the argument an appeal to authority? 7 or 8 people are commonly referenced with the rest of the nutritional and medical field being largely part of some elaborate conspiracy because the illuminati can't over price produce. Reply BLH Productions says: July 30, 2013 at 5:38 pm Yeah, I found it insulting at first, but now it seems that the most fit kind of vegan is being compared to the least fit omnivore, and he plays a numbers game, leaving out some for the vegans I might add. The cure for omnivores seems to be more plants, but the cure for vegans would be more meat or at least animal products, which they can't do. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 1, 2013 at 11:10 pm Zinc — cup of raw lentils = 61%, cup of raw cowpeas = 68%, cup of peanuts = 59%, cup of oats = 41%, half pound of raw whole wheat spaghetti = 72% … Source: nutritiondata … Vitamin D — the sun is the best source by far omega 3 — flaxseeds (no mercury is found in flaxseeds) iron — cup of cooked spinach 36%, head of romaine lettuce = 70%, cup of raw lentils = 80% … protein? People are still confused about plant protein after all that's been written about it? Reply BLH Productions says: August 1, 2013 at 11:38 pm Yep, so then if these vitamins are so easily accessible that why is it that these are mission so often that they fall under common deficiencies? It isn't protein in and of itself, it is complete protein. Just eat beans and rice and that can cover it, but it is still a problem for some people. This isn't the "you will fail at this" list, it is a list of what you need to know if you are a vegan so you can watch out for it. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 3, 2013 at 9:01 am Protein deficiencies only occur in cases of extreme poverty and starvation. I've never heard of vegans in countries where people generally do not die of starvation suffering from kwashiorkor (protein deficiency). Even unfortunate people who do suffer from kwashiorkor can be healed by eating plants, which have plenty of protein to prevent deficiency. All whole plant foods have all essential amino acids. Reply BLH Productions says: August 3, 2013 at 12:28 pm You are thinking about extreme cases, I am thinking about someone missing their needed dose of a certain Amino Acid. Though I suppose that if you have never heard of vegans in richer countries having the problem, it must be true, because you don't know about it. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 3, 2013 at 2:08 pm I seriously doubt that people who are on the verge of starvation are vegan. I, like many people, have the luxury of refusing to eat animal body parts or breastmilks without encountering a malnourishment or starvation threat. However, unfortunate people who have starvation as part of their reality don't have the option of forgoing the eating of animal body parts or breastmilks because the threat of famine is continually looming. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 3, 2013 at 2:11 pm I'm sure that those suffering from kwashiorkor would be pleased to devour a colony of insects. Reply BLH Productions says: August 4, 2013 at 1:47 am Again, I am talking about some people who are going to be lacking in an essential amino acid. You can be lacking in a nutrient and eat quite well. What you are doing is a strawman fallacy. No, you have the luxury to choose, as do I. You choose veganism and I choose omnivorism. Great strides in feeding hungry populations actually have been made by science by using GMO crops. Funny that some vegans find GMO crops to be synonymous with poison. Reply BLH Productions says: August 4, 2013 at 1:49 am I'm sure that a few wouldn't be apposed to cannibalism, though the fact remains that this problem is from eating a diet of just watery crushed grains because the people are poor. Give them any food with more nutrients and they become fine. Reply Adam Karpel says: August 4, 2013 at 5:33 am watch?v=2XpXVlnD1FU Nuff said about deficiencies of vegans and omnivores deficiencies. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 5, 2013 at 2:03 am Wrong, if they had access to abundant amounts of grains like a Chinese rice worker they would not get kwashiorkor. Kwashiorkor strikes those who on the verge of starving to death. Reply BLH Productions says: August 5, 2013 at 3:02 am "…..the fact remains that this problem is from eating a diet of just watery crushed grains…." I am describing the food that is being eaten, which is usually a kind of grain that is ground up and boiled into a paste. Quit making strawment out of my arguments. BTW, I think that you having masturbating to the thought I plants is disturbing (see what happens when you make up the arguments you address?). If they had access to what the Eskimos had, they wouldn't get Kwashiorkor either. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 10, 2013 at 1:01 pm GMO crops contain pesticides within the crops. What frustrates me about the crops is that (1) in the U.S. GMO foods are not labeled and (2) Monsanto brings suit against farmers if their GMO seed contaminates a farmer's crop that does not use GMO. GMO is more about forming a corporate monopoly of staple crops for corporate profits than feeding the world's hungry people. Don't fool yourself, if the goal was to feed the world's hungry that could easily be done today without GMOs. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 10, 2013 at 1:06 pm You probably can't choose veganism even if you believe it is a good idea. Most who smoke 2 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day can't choose not to smoke even if abstaining seems like the better idea theoretically. Someone who consumes 15 alcoholic beverages a day can't choose to stop either, even if he or she intellectually understands the benefits of stopping. Most people get stuck in their ways and there is not much they can do about it. Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 1:18 pm I feel you don't know what you are talking about. 1) GMO crops aren't labeled because they are safe. You obviously disagree, but I can't change reality because it bothers you. 2) Yes, Monsanto filed a law suit and won, 3 times, however the supreme court that gave the final verdict said he didn't make a profit so he didn't owe any money. However after the few seeds were on his property, he used it to grow hundreds of acres, with 95-98% purity. That's what Monsanto was worrying about. Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 1:22 pm ….People getting a few seeds and then growing crops on their own. I can understand you don't like them because the file so many suits to get their way, but they put a lot of money into producing the crops they do and they want to protect it. Please stop looking at it from only one side. That's already essentially happened with corn. And the other crops would still exist. So if pure crops are so great, why are you worried about more expensive GMO crops? Could they be doing better? Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 1:38 pm Already tried both a vegetarian and vegan diet actually HopyHop1. It's the strangest thing, I don't seem to be increasing the amount of meat I eat, implying it isn't an addictive substance, just enjoyable. Isn't that interesting? It's almost as if you're talking out of your ass right now, but that couldn't be right? Vegans always know what they are talking about and never try to stretch the truth for their ideology. Are you addicted to nuts HopyHop1? Fat and protein, like meat. Uh-oh. Careful! Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 10, 2013 at 1:44 pm 1) The dangers of smoking cigarettes was only understood after centuries of ignorance. If you have faith in GMO crops than you should be able to chose them, while others who don't share your faith should be able to chose to avoid them. 2) You obviously don't see where Monsanto is going with this. Even defending a lawsuit creates a loss. And, Monsanto decided to strike preemptively by filing suit instead of defending suits under a trespass theory. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 10, 2013 at 1:47 pm Sure, and most chain smokers have tried to quit smoking at least once. Most alcoholics have tried to give up drinking at least once. It's not surprising that you didn't last on a vegan diet. If whole food vegan diets became commonplace, heart disease could become a freak incident instead of the number one killer in many Western nations. Reply Clyde Rembrandt says: August 10, 2013 at 1:59 pm I eat nuts and seeds sparingly. However, unlike animal body parts and breastmilks, plant foods contain no cholesterol. Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 3:06 pm Except it wasn't that I wanted to give up meat, it was that I was trying the diet for myself. That right there is why I can no long take vegans and vegetarians seriously. The notion that there exists a secular form of sin, that if you give up something that could be enjoyable, it somehow makes you noble, enlightened even. But it is just a diet choice. And no. There are other factors besides cholesterol when it comes to heart disease. Plants can cause inflammation, leading to heart disease. Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 3:09 pm Cholesterol is not like trans fat. It is something to eat in moderation, but although we do make it ourselves we can use the cholesterol we eat. The problem is excess, age, and a sedentary lifestyle. Eventually, if you live long enough, something's gotta give. Chronic diseases have always been around, usually in the rich because they lived a sedentary lifestyle and were more likely to live longer, meaning infectious diseases or work didn't kill them first. Science seems to disagree with you. Reply BLH Productions says: August 10, 2013 at 3:12 pm Science doesn't cradle ideas, they run them into brick walls. If an idea is sound, when you examine the pieces what you should find is the brick wall. When it comes to veganism all I see are the fragments of the idea that veganism is the perfect diet for humans. As I said, science seems to disagree with you. I cannot keep talking to an unscientific pseudo-intellectual who likes to use emotional and flawed arguments to force their morality on others. Goodbye hopy.

You make the meat eaters out as fat slobs when really meat eaters come in all shapes and sizes, much like vegans do. If I were a meat eater, this would make it less likely for me to go vegan. It's great that you're giving out valid facts but I don't think the negative stereotypes are really necessary to get people to care.
