Question about Vegetarians and Vitamin B12, and Organic Food

Post by Winston » June 18th, 2008, 7:10 am

Dear all,
I have some questions.

Do all vegetarians need Vitamin B12? What foods compensate for it? What if I eat eggs and cheese for protein? Would that make up for a Vitamin B12 deficiency?

What if I feel fine without taking any vitamin B12? Does that mean I don't need it?

Every time I eat food that is certified USDA organic (they have an organic health store even here in Angeles City) it definitely tastes much better. But it's very expensive as you know. Is it worth the cost though? Does eating organic food really make a big difference to your health?

The Dr of all subjects that I know said that you don't have to eat organic produce necessarily, and that if you just eat fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmer's market, it will be fine. No need for the expensive organic stuff that's mostly an advertising gimmick anyway.

What do you think?

This article here talks about B12:

Codliver oil and clams/oysters are a source. If you can get a hold of raw milk in the Philippines, that could work as well.
