lol, aquatic ape...that's a new one
actually...any live/raw food containin a B vitamin will more often that not conatain ALL B's...it's just another attempt to scare people away from being vegetarian..
the fda could come out and say meat eaters need vitamin K, because meat does not contain K....
then what do you do?
some sea veggies contain B12 for example...
honestly you get everything you need and then some in raw/organic plant life...that's Truth
we all have a choice on what we put into our bodies...
once you know how these animals are tortured and treated and you still choose to eat them, hmm....there may be something there....i'm just saying...it is what it is..
a vegan world is a peaceful world
there is no comparison between flesh or a muscle of an animal and let's say the good old bannana...
one has bio-photons..lifeforce..live enzymes...probiotics..etc..
the other is dead, low frequency, low vibration...etc.etc.

Well where is the peer reviewed scientific journals to prove this? I understand that excessive animal protein can increase the risk of certain cancers but you make an extraordinary claim.... If this were true I think most of us would have become vegan.
Sorry I do not buy it.
i do eat salmon occasionally, but i'd rather just be strict...
it's funny how i am vegan and vegetarian since 2008 and i feel the best i have ever felt...
hmm...there is something to this
i think i get my b12 too!
release the programming.....release....and remember
i am not an aquatic ape, you can believe whatever you want though..
i am a galactic human...
in the end i will be drinking green/fruit smoothies....all raw...all organic....all living..in perfect health,, with all strands of DNA activated...
Carbohydrate fermentation and absorption
Without gut flora, the human body would be unable to utilize some of the undigested carbohydrates it consumes, because some types of gut flora have enzymes that human cells lack for breaking down certain polysaccharides. Rodents raised in a sterile environment and lacking in gut flora need to eat 30% more calories just to remain the same weight as their normal counterparts. Carbohydrates that humans cannot digest without bacterial help include certain starches, fiber, oligosaccharides and sugars that the body failed to digest and absorb like lactose in the case of lactose intolerance and sugar alcohols, mucus produced by the gut, and proteins. A further result is flatulence, specifically due to the metabolism of oligosaccharides (notably from beans) by many different species.
Bacteria turn carbohydrates they ferment into short chain fatty acids, or SCFAs, by a form of fermentation called saccharolytic fermentation. Products include acetic acid, propionic acid and butyric acid. These materials can be used by host cells, providing a major source of useful energy and nutrients for humans, as well as helping the body to absorb essential dietary minerals such as calcium, magnesium and iron. Gases and organic acids, such as lactic acid, are also produced by saccharolytic fermentation. Acetic acid is used by muscle, propionic acid helps the liver produce ATP, and butyric acid provides energy to gut cells and may prevent cancer. Evidence also indicates that bacteria enhance the absorption and storage of lipids and produce and then facilitate the body to absorb needed vitamins like vitamin K.

hi, your body will store some nutrients for quite some time. please think about a good vegan multivitamin for when this "store" runs out.

I'm curious, why are you concerned about kale?
I am guessing you mention spinach because of the oxalic acid it contains. Is that it?
