Maybe you found the reason that vegans are so angry and stupid!
And I thought it was the secret jealousy and marijuana!

Well you can get choline from plants, but are there veggies or supplements that block choline, besides meds?
Interesting that folate and b12 moderate the levels, i been taking a b vitamin supplement luckily .
I wish there was a blood-test app with an attachment so we could monitor our nutrients better . Whoever makes that will be a millionaire.
What researchers found were several edible weeds that rivaled the nutrition of kale. They harvested chickweed, dandelion, dock, mallow and nasturtium, and each of the wild edibles had more "dietary fibre, protein, vitamin A, sodium, calcium, iron and vitamin K, and provided more energy" than kale. (Kale did win out when it came to vitamin C.)
Potato skins contain a compound called choline, which is the building block of lecithin, a part of cell walls, plasma and lipoproteins. Your brain and nervous system require choline to regulate your mood, memory and muscle control, among other functions.
The American diet does not provide an adequate amount of choline for most people, according to the NIH. One potato skin contains 18 milligrams of choline that contributes to the recommended daily amount of between 425 and 550 milligrams for adults, depending on age and gender.
