  • If eating a particular diet requires artificial supplements, then doesn't that indicate it isn't natural? I don't like to take any supplements if I can avoid it. Might it not be better to be a "mostly vegan" and eat a big serving of oysters for B12 and zinc once a week? Can animal products once a week meet our B12 needs for the rest of the time?

  • Doesn't B-12 come from bacteria? Are there any other organisms that derive B-12 from other sources? I've read that this B-12 producing bacteria can be found on some organically grown plant foods, especially ones grown close to the ground such as carrots or lettuce, and with the modern way of growing crop the bacteria cannot live on conventionally grown foods. What's your opinion on this?

  • Dr. Greger my name is Sherrick Duncan I am a husband and a father of four.

    I worked hard and saved up and made payment for years and now own two acres in Oklahoma and am starting to grow my own food so that I can get off of food stamps and section8 welfare.

    I did all this so we can afford to eat a mostly plant based diet (I would do all plant based but it conflicts with my 100% self sufficiency self reliance prepper goals) so I have a question.

    If I eat like 98% plant based but only eat as much animal products as absolutely necessary to get a self sufficienct b12 source off of eithet eggs or whatever the best animal product b12 source is how much and how often maximum/minimum would one person need to ingest of animal product a week, month, year to get there necessary b12?

    I am absolutely 100% unwilling to do b12 injections or sublingual drops or foods or drinks that are fortified because (UNLESS I can grow or produce the b12 supplements myself) which from my studies I cant, then it violates my self sufficiency goal.

    So my question is what is the maximum/minimum amount of whatever the animal product highest in b12 would I need to eat how much and how often only to get my b12 needs from our farm raised animals?

    In other words I want to know how much of and what animal product that i can produce myself to eat to get all my b12 but little enough of this animal product to get the absolute minimum to no damage to my body or health?

  • Hi Dr Gregor, I read in Tim Spector's Diet Myth (recommend it, research based and a good read; based mostly on twin studies) that he had no luck while vegan with B12 supplements and resorted to eating one steak a month and that did the trick. What are your thoughts on that? Is there any research that suggests B12 can be hard to absorb if it doesn't come as a part of food?

  • I got my B12 from milk before going vegan and I get it from milk now… Nothing has changed, just the sugar and saturated fat content of the type of milk I drink.
