Negative sides of vegan diet

What you need to know about the negative sides of a vegan diet.


Pure vegetarians are called vegans. Vegans are not allowed to eat and touch the fish, meats and all animal’s flesh. They have strong religious beliefs. Normal vegans follow the strict diet. Vegans keep themselves abstained from fish, red meat, poultry, egg, milk and all animal derived products. Vegan diet has many beneficial factors for the human body. Vegan diet provides low risk of diabetes, heart diseases, lung’s diseases, etc. Vegan diet also helps you to get a slim and fat free figure. But a vegan diet has some negative factors too. Some vegetarians are not pure vegetarians.

They occasionally eat fish and fit. Some vegetarians also eat egg and milk. They can have well balanced nutrient in the body. Vegan diet may fail to provide all proteins and nutrients. Vegans should be very careful about their health. They should not sacrifice proteins from the diet. Vegan diet can be well balanced and full of nutrients. For this, they have to be aware of health matters. It is not easy to start proper vegan diet. Lower level of proteins can make vegans weak and unhealthy.

Vegan diet has a lower level of fat, cholesterol, zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron and vitamin. Vegan diet includes vegetables, fruits, corns, wheat, and rice. Vegan diet is fat free. Fat increases energy level in the human body. Most often vegans stay stress. They feel depression and tiredness. Cholesterol, zinc and magnesium are important nutrients of the human body. Vegans get a low level of zinc and magnesium from their meal. Vegans get a low level of calcium. For the human body, calcium is an essential element. If you want strong teeth and bone, you have to take calcium. Calcium makes a strong joint of bones. Vegans have the lower density of bone mineralization. They are abstained from milk. Milk is a rich source of calcium and vitamin D. Calcium and vitamin D are essential elements for the growth of the human body. Children and pregnant women need these two elements most. Vegan women may experience calcium deficiency during pregnancy.

Some dark green vegetables contain lower level of calcium. You have to eat plenty of those green vegetables. You have to keep broccoli in your meals. Raw broccoli or boiled broccoli is must get calcium. Vegan diet will be imbalanced if calcium is absent in the diet. Ultraviolet ray is a good source of vitamin D.

Vegans can get this vitamin from sunlight. They can also take supplements of necessary vitamin and nutrients. Vitamin B12 is also absent in this diet. This vitamin is an essential element of blood. It produces red blood cells. Lower level of this vitamin in blood will produce the lower amount of red blood cells. As a result of this circumstance, anemia occurs. Anemia may also happen due to iron deficiency. Vegetables contained iron should be included in a vegan diet.

Vegan diet makes blood pressure lower. Besides having some negative aspects, a vegan diet can provide a healthy life. Well balanced vegan diet keeps you away from those health problems.

    “Vegans are not allowed to eat and touch the fish, meats and all animal’s flesh. They have strong religious beliefs” Your statement above is incorrect. Vegans are allowed to touch meat if they choose. However, typically a Vegan will choose not to, because, well, why would anyone want to touch a corpse? There is no religious connection to Veganism whatsoever.

    Your article is seriously flawed. Vegan diet is not low in zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron and other vitamins. You can get all of your vitamins and minerals from eating a plant based diet except B12 which has to be supplemented. Also people over 50 need to supplement B12 as well. The liver makes cholesterol so we are not deficient in cholesterol (look up Dr. Esselystn heartattackproof. Also a vegan diet includes fats from nuts, seeds, avocados etc. so our diet is not fat free. Vegans do not feel tired all the time and do not feel depressed all the time. I am very active and most vegans I know are very active look at Robert Cheeke, Bad Ass Vegan,. Milk calcium is very acidic and actually causes calcium to leach from the bones. That is why countries with the highest dairy consumption have the highest rate of hip fractures (read The China Study, and Building Bone Vitality. Vegan woman also do just fine on a vegan diet and so do vegan children( look up Dr. McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard,Dr. Pam Popper, The Everything Vegan Pregnancy etc. You need to go back and do your research and talk to vegan/ whole food plant based experts. Anybody who is considering going vegan or who is vegan please do not go by anything this article says. Please research the experts I recommended.

      B12 can be found in Beet, Almond milk, Energy drinks, beer, etc. 🙂

    What a load of hogwash this article is! Veganism is NOT a religion! There are some religious people that are vegan. A vegan diet can contain as much fat and protein as one would like and a vegan diet can be very healthy. A lot of medical experts such as the Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association are touting the benefits of a plant based diet. Besides all this, not abiding animal cruelty for your taste buds feels good. Meat production is also very detrimental to our planet and one of the biggest contributors to global warming.
