Vegetarians are indeed mad

We now have proof.

The vitamin, B12, found in meat, fish, fortified cereals and milk, is crucial to the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.

Research has shown that many elderly people have low levels of the vitamin.

Rebecca Wood, chief executive of the Alzheimer\’s Research Trust, which helped fund the research, published in the journal Neurology, said: "This study suggests that consuming more vitamin B12 through eating meat, fish, fortified cereals or milk as part of a balanced diet might help protect the brain. Liver and shellfish are particularly rich sources of B12.

"Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common problem among elderly people in the UK and has been linked to declining memory and dementia."

Declining memory and dementia, eh? Explains a lot about the vegetarian movement….

  1. Didn’t Edward de Bono, he of the lateral thinking, once propose Marmite as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

  2. What do they “fortify” the cereals with then?


    I do hope it’s something gross, like rendered cockroaches, or extract of stale catfood. The rest of us can give it a wide berth, but the pallid, simpering, self regarding vegan buggers will just have to get scrofula and ringworm, and whatever else you get from a shortage of B12.

  3. Of course, as any fule kno, the way to fix this is to drink more beer. (Very rich source; two pints a day minimum.)

    Of course, the Islamic world and the National Health Service are equally opposed to this, which tells you all you need to know about both of those organisations.
