Common Side Effects

On the arm where you got the shot:

WhatExpectafterVaccinationAnimation_pain
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling

Throughout the rest of your body:

WhatExpectafterVaccinationAnimation_fever
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Nausea

If you had a severe or immediate allergic reaction after getting the first dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get a second dose of either of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

What are the legit medical exemptions for vaccine mandates? 

And how to get a religious exemption.  

There is no single list that every employer or business will accept to exempt a person from a vaccine mandate, but there are some more I want to cite. Here are some conditions and scenarios that people or health care professionals commonly cite when seeking a medical exemption: 

PEG allergies: Polyethylene glycol is a substance contained in both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. It can touch off an allergic reaction for a small number of people. PEG is used in a wide range of pharmaceutical products as a contrast agent to make images show up on ultrasounds and such. You heard about that allergy early in the vaccine program. It is why you have to hang around for a while after you get your vaccine — to be sure you do not have a reaction. 

If you can prove you are one of the tiny number of people who have this allergy, it is your ticket to vaccine exemption even though lots of people who have the allergy do just fine with the shots. The allergic reactions are generally so mild that one study found that 159 of 189 patients who had a reaction went back for a second dose and only 32 of them had any mild reaction at all the second time around. 

There could be a reason they had no trouble. Forbes reports that PEGs may have had nothing to do with the reactions: 

“Around 5 in a million people experience what appears to be a severe allergic reaction to the Covid-19 vaccines,” said David Stukus, MD, a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. “We initially thought that individuals with allergy to vaccine ingredients called polyethylene glycol, or polysorbate may have been those experiencing reactions because there are virtually no other components of the mRNA vaccines or Johnson & Johnson that are really identified as causes of allergic reaction. But after investigation, these don’t appear to be the cause of this very rare anaphylaxis,” added Stukus. 

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome: MIS is, again, rare. It is usually found in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, “Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. We do not yet know what causes MIS-C. However, we know that many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19. MIS-C can be serious, even deadly, but most children who were diagnosed with this condition have gotten better with medical care.” 

Cancer: There has been some confusion over this exemption because the vaccine may not produce much of an immune response in patients in cancer treatment. Doctors are telling their cancer patients to take the vaccine but to be very careful because even vaccinated, they will not be as protected as other people. Forbes reports: 

“There are no specific contraindications for people with cancer, although in some cases, patients might not mount an effective immune response,” said Dr Benjamin G. Neel, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Medicine at NYU School of Medicine and Director of the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center. 

“We strongly recommend that all of our cancer patients get the vaccine, although some patients, particularly those with blood cancers, might not develop a strong immune response to two doses of the vaccine and could benefit from a third dose,” added Neel. 

Cancer patients will be high on the list for the first booster shots. 

Phobia of needles: Trypanophobia probably won’t qualify someone for a medical exemption, even though a surprisingly large number of people freak out over shots. 

Remember, just because you do not suffer from or understand another person’s phobia does not make it less real for that person. The American Psychological Association has some help for needle-phobic folks who are holding off getting the shots. And, the APA says, “One meta-analysis found that 8% of health care workers in hospitals and 18% of workers in long-term care facilities avoid the influenza vaccine due to needle fears.” 

Teens who fear heart inflammation: This condition shows up “very rarely” but has been cited as a concern that some teens and their parents have. The CDC says the risk of getting severely ill from COVID-19 far outweighs the risk. 

In short, while you may be able to find a doctor who will write you an exemption for some condition or another, there are very few people who legitimately qualify based on clinical evidence presented so far. 

How to get a religious exemption from vaccine mandates 

People who do not want to take the shots may try to get a religious exemption, but they will find that most major faith groups have no such exemption. Vanderbilt University Medical Center compiled a list of what major faith groups say about vaccines. The list says: 

Hinduism – Hinduism has no prohibition against vaccines. While Hindus venerate cows, trace bovine components of certain vaccines have not been identified as a theological concern. 

Islam – Islam has no prohibition to vaccination. 

Buddhism – Buddhism has no central authority that determines doctrine. Vaccination is widely accepted in predominantly Buddhist countries. 

Jainism – Jains follow a path of non-violence toward all living beings including microscopic organisms. Jains do allow cooking, the use of soap and antibiotics, and vaccination, because this destruction of microorganisms, even though regretted, is necessary to protect other lives. 

Judaism – Judaism supports vaccination as an action to maintain health, and also as a parental responsibility to protect children against future infection. In Judaism the concept of Pikuakh nefesh, acting to save one’s own or another’s life, is a primary value. 

Scientology: in an interview for BeliefNet, Rev. John Carmichael of the Church of Scientology stated that there are no precepts or strictures about vaccinations within Scientology. 

Christianity – The Christian faith consists of multiple different denominations, which may differ in theological approach to vaccines. The following denominations do have a theological objection to vaccination: 

Dutch Reformed Congregations – This denomination has a tradition of declining immunizations. Some members decline vaccination on the basis that it interferes with divine providence. However, others within the faith accept immunization as a gift from God to be used with gratitude. 

Faith healing denominations including: 

Faith Tabernacle 

Church of the First Born 

Faith Assembly 

End Time Ministries 

Church of Christ, Scientist – One of the basic teachings of this denomination is that disease can be cured or prevented by focused prayer and members will often request exemptions when available. However, there are not strict rules against vaccination and members can receive required vaccinations.

8 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. DR. NATURAL 718-783-3465. JOIN WWW.TEMPLEOFILLUMINATION.NING.COM. PLEASE FORWARD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
 

8 habits of highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey 

  Habit #1 BE Proactive 

Proactive people take responsibility for their own lives. They determine the agendas they will follow and choose their response to what happens around them. Reactive people don’t take responsibility for their own lives. They feel victimized, a product of circumstances, their past, and other people. They do not see as the creative force of their lives. You could have a good day no matter what comes your way. Focus on things you can change. 

Habit #2 Begin with the End in Mind Based on the work Stephen Covey 

Begin with the End in Mind means developing a clear picture of where you want to go with your life. Deciding what your values are and Setting Goals. Good reasons to have an end in mind. The paths you choose now can affect you forever. If you don’t decide your own future, someone else will do it for you. A powerful document that expresses your personal sense of Purpose and meaning in life. It acts as a governing Constitution by which you evaluate decisions and choose behaviors. End in mind is very important for everybody. When you wake up, you should plan to do something for today. You can start with what is the beginning, how you will act to others, and where you will end up for today. 

Habit #3 Put First Things First Based on the work of Stephen Covey 

Key Paradigms “I will focus on importance instead of urgency.” Importance An activity is important if you personally find it valuable, and if it contributes to your mission values, and high-priority goals. Urgency An activity is urgent if you or others feel that it requires immediate attention. Effective Management is putting first things first. Urgent Matters are usually visible. Important Matters contribute to our mission. 

Habit #4 Think Win-Win Based on the work of Stephen Covey 

SIX PARADIGMS OF HUMAN INTERACTION Win-Win, Win-Lose, Lose-Win, Lose-Lose, Win or No-Deal. 

Competition can be very healthy. It drives you to improve to reach and stretch but it becomes dark when you use it as a way to place yourself above others. Comparing yourself with others. This is cancerous and will only lead to bad news. It will make us feel inferior to others. The only thing you should compare yourself to is your own potential. 

Win/Win is not a personality technique. It’s a total paradigm of human interaction. It comes from a character of integrity, maturity, and the Abundance Mentality. It grows out of high-trust relationships. It is embodied in agreements that effectively clarify and manage expectations as well as accomplishment. It thrives in supportive systems.  

Win/Win seeks mutual benefits in all human interactions. Win/Win means that agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial. Win/Win is the belief that it’s not your way or my way; it’s a better way, a higher way. 

Win/Lose states if I win you lose. In Leadership style, Win/Lose is an authoritarian approach. Win/Lose people are prone to use position, power, credentials, possessions, or personality to get their way. 

Lose/Win stands for no demands, no expectations and no vision. People who think Lose/Win are usually quick to please or appease. They seek strength from popularity or acceptance. Lose/Win people have little courage to express their own feelings and convictions and are easily intimidated by the ego strength of others.  

When two Win/Lose determine, stubborn, ego-invested individuals interact-the result will be Lose/Lose. Both will lose. Both will become vindictive and want to “get back” or “get even,” blind to the fact that murder is suicide, that revenge is a two-edged sword. Lose/Lose is the philosophy of the highly dependent person without inner direction who is miserable and thinks everyone else should be, too. 

People with the Win mentality don’t necessarily want someone else to lose. That’s irrelevant. What matters is that they get what they want. Win mentality thinks in terms of securing his own ends-and leaving it to others to secure theirs. 

No Deal basically means that if we can’t find a solution that would benefit us both, we agree to disagree agreeably-No Deal. No expectations have been created and no performance contracts established. 

Habit #5Based on the work of Stephen Covey Seek first to Understand, Then to be Understood 

You need to understand other first before you start wanting other to understand you. Listen first, talk second. Understand other will have a big effect on how you judge the person. Seeking First to Understand is only half of habit 5. Seeking to Be Understood is way more challenging since it requires courage. If you can understand others, then others will surely understand you too.  

Habit #6Based on the work of Stephen Covey Synergize 

Synergizing or synergy is when you achieve something with more than one person or in a group to create a better solution. It’s not my way or your way it’s a better way to solve or do something. 

When you use synergy in your everyday life you’re a team worker. You want to hear other people’s opinions and what they have to say. You don’t ignore them or say no to whatever they may have to say. 

An example of synergy is two heads are better than one. Which is when two people are thinking you could solve a problem a better way or have a better solution for that problem. 

Habit #7 Sharpen the Saw Based on the work of Stephen Covey 

 You need to restore your health and take care of yourself to be prepared. Eat good food. Relax. Get enough sleep. Practice yoga. Play sports. Take walks. Stretch out. Aerobics workout. Read newspapers. Visit a library.  Write a story. Debate. Play board games. Play an instrument. You have to want something to get it. Renew and awaken your inner self. Meditate, pray, Draw, write, read, Walk, listen to music, Get real, You can do it. Treat your soul with respect. 

Habit #8Based on the work of Stephen Covey Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs 

Find your voice & inspire others to do likewise. Find your voice Inspire others to find their voices. Focus Execution •Find your voice •Express your voice •Expand your influence • Be trustworthy •Build trust •Blend others voices •Create a common vision •Align goals and system •Empower others 

To find your voice means to engage in work that genuinely taps your talents and fuels your passion.

THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. 

THE FIRST THREE HABITS YOU CAN DO ALL BY YOURSELF = PRIVATE SUCCESS. 

THE SECOND THREE HABITS INVOLVES YOU AND OTHER PEOPLE = PUBLIC SUCCESS. 

THE LAST HABIT INVOLVES YOU AS WELL AS THE INDIVIDUALS YOU PLAN TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL WITH. 

Habit 1: Take Initiative, be proactive. 

Habit 2: Envision the Life You Want. Begin with the ENDGOAL in mind. 

Habit 3: Prioritize whatever is most Important in your life as in your life's purpose(s) and your top 5 to 20 passions in life. 

Habit 4: Seek Mutual Benefits. Think WIN-WIN. 

Habit 5: Listen and Understand the Other First, without interruption, then you speak. 

Habit 6: Collaborate to Create Possibilities - SYNERGY. 

Habit 7: Practice Self-Renewal, meaning whatever habit of previous 6 habits listed above you become weak in, strengthen it, otherwise known as SHARPENING THE SAW!  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

THE 5 AGREEMENTS 

The First Agreement – BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD 

Speak with integrity and say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. 

The Second Agreement – DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY 

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering. 

The Third Agreement – DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS 

Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with yourself first, then others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. 

The Fourth Agreement – ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST 

Doing your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret. 

The Fifth Agreement – BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN 

Don’t believe yourself or anybody else unconditionally. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words and you will understand the real message. 

“By practicing the Five Agreements, what you are really doing is respecting everything in creation. You are respecting your dream; you are respecting everybody else’s dream. If you use these tools, your effort is really for everyone, because your joy, your happiness, your peace, and your heaven are contagious. When you are happy, the people around you are happy too, and it inspires them to change their own world.” – Don Miguel Ruiz

Happiness is a choice.

Have an attitude of gratitude that you are still breathing. 

Choose to be happy from within no what are your circumstances are in the present moment.

Google the benefits of Spiritual Enlightenment & how to achieve Spiritual Enlightenment, print the information, study it then practice whatever you learned. 

Be around other happy people, spend time in nature & visit places, do activities, embrace thoughts & emotions that brings you bliss & joy. 

2.) How to become optimally healthy. 

Maintain a positive mental attitude no matter the circumstances. 

Become an organic alkaline raw vegan, if you cannot do 100% raw then do at least 80% raw vegan.

Get the book Raw food made easy for 1 or 2 people by Jennifer Cornbleet and see her videos on youtube.com. We prepare raw vegan cuisine every Sunday 3 pm 138 Saint James Place BKLYN, NY 11238 RSVP BY CALLING 718-783-3465.

Throughout this festival, we call on our community to demonstrate solidarity as we unite to support those affected by last week's earthquake in Haiti. CCCADI has partnered with Comuna Caribe in Puerto Rico to provide relief aid. Comuna Caribe has a strong history of working with organizations connected to and on the ground in Haiti. Aid will be distributed to KORAL (Kounbite pou Ranfose Aksyon Lakay), a 

local action enforcement committee in the southern region of Haiti, and PAPDA (Plateforme Haïtienne de Plaidoyer pour un Développement Alternatif), a coalition of nine organizations who work toward alternative development in Haiti. 

The approach we are taking in partnering with Comuna Caribe will allow our Diasporic community in New York, or from wherever you may be reading this, to support those in need on the island with monetary donations. We will not collect supplies and run the risks of no, or poor, distribution. We will not direct funds to government agencies. We will work with those directly connected to the needs of the people on the ground in the affected area. 

Join us at the festival where you can donate to this relief effort for Haiti. You can also donate via Paypal, include "Haiti" in your message to: info@vamosPR.org 

Be sure to also join us for our next installment of Sou Sou! Saturdays in the Park on August 28th from 11 am to 5 pm. This event will feature workshops in African Dance, Percussion, Black August Art Therapy and Spoken Word. Families will also be able to watch Mass Transit Street Theater perform "Solid Ground" which uses spoken word to explore issues of adversity.

The Roots

THURSDAY, AUGUST 12
Doors 6:00 PM / Show 7:00 PM

*Ticketed Benefit Concert*

The legendary Roots Crew have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business, winning four GRAMMYS, including "Best R&B Album" for Wake Up!, "Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance" for "Hang in There" (with John Legend) and "Best Group or Duo R&B Vocal Performance" for "Shine." This brings the band's GRAMMY nomination count to twelve. Additionally, "The Roots Picnic," a yearly star-studded mix of musicians, has become a celebrated institution.

A variety of vegan foods includes fruits, vegetables and nuts.

Vegan nutrition refers to the nutritional and human health aspects of vegan diets. A well-planned, balanced vegan diet is suitable to meet all recommendations for nutrients in every stage of human life.[1] Vegan diets tend to be higher in dietary fibermagnesiumfolic acidvitamin Cvitamin Eiron, and phytochemicals; and lower in caloriessaturated fatcholesterollong-chain omega-3 fatty acidsvitamin Dcalciumzinc, and vitamin B12.[2] Researchers agree that those on a vegan diet should eat foods fortified with vitamin B12 or take a dietary supplement.[1][3] Preliminary evidence from epidemiological research indicates that a vegan diet may lower the risk of cancer.[4]

Positions of dietetic and government associations[edit]

The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietitians of Canada state that properly planned vegan diets are appropriate for all life stages, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence.[5][6] They indicate that vegetarian diets may be more common among adolescents with eating disorders, but that its adoption may serve to camouflage a disorder rather than cause one. The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council similarly recognizes a well-planned vegan diet as viable for any age,[7][8] as does the New Zealand Ministry of Health,[9] British National Health Service,[10] British Nutrition Foundation,[11] Dietitians Association of Australia,[12] United States Department of Agriculture,[13] Mayo Clinic,[14] Canadian Pediatric Society,[15] and Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.[16] The British National Health Service's Eatwell Plate allows for an entirely plant-based diet,[17] as does the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) MyPlate.[18][19] The USDA allows tofu to replace meat in the National School Lunch Program.[20] The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics adds that well-planned vegan diets are also appropriate for older adults and athletes.[1]

The German Society for Nutrition does not recommend a vegan diet for babies, children and adolescents, or for pregnancy or breastfeeding, citing insufficient data for these subpopulations.[21]

Health effects[edit]

Further information: Red meat § Health effects

The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics stated that "plant-based eating is recognized as not only nutritionally sufficient but also as a way to reduce the risk for many chronic illnesses", including cancer.[22][1] Kaiser Permanente, the largest healthcare organization in the United States, has written, "Research shows that plant-based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates."[23]

There is inconsistent evidence for vegan diets providing a protective effect against metabolic syndrome.[24] Vegan diets appear to help weight loss, especially in the short term.[25] There is some tentative evidence of an association between vegan diets and a reduced risk of cancer.[26] In general the association of a vegan diet and lower cancer incidence is the same as for other types of vegetarian diet, except for prostate cancer where the association of reduced risk is stronger for a vegan diet.[27] A vegan diet offers no benefit over other types of healthy diet in helping with high blood pressure. For individuals with systolic blood pressure of 130 mmHg or higher, there is, as of 2019, tentative evidence that a vegan diet could result in an additional 4-mmHg reduction in blood pressures.[28]

However, consuming no animal products increases the risk of vitamin B12 deficiency which occurs in up to 80% of vegans that do not supplement with vitamin B12.[29] Vegans are at risk of low bone mineral density without appropriate intake of calcium.[30]

Pregnancy, infants and children[edit]

Further information: Nutrition and pregnancy

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietitians of Canada consider well-planned vegetarian and vegan diets "appropriate for individuals during all stages of the lifecycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes". The German Society for Nutrition cautioned against a vegan diet for babies, children, and adolescents, and during pregnancy and breastfeeding, due to insufficient data.[31][21] The position of the Canadian Pediatric Society is that "well-planned vegetarian and vegan diets with appropriate attention to specific nutrient components can provide a healthy alternative lifestyle at all stages of fetal, infant, child and adolescent growth. It is recommended that attention should be given to nutrient intake, particularly protein, vitamins B12 and D, essential fatty acids, iron, zinc, and calcium.[15]

According to a 2015 systematic review, there was little evidence available about vegetarian and vegan diets during pregnancy, and a lack of randomized studies meant that the effects of diet could not be distinguished from confounding factors.[32] It concluded: "Within these limits, vegan-vegetarian diets may be considered safe in pregnancy, provided that attention is paid to vitamin and trace element requirements."[32] A daily source of vitamin B12 is important for pregnant and lactating vegans, as is vitamin D if there are concerns about low sun exposure.[33] A different review found that pregnant vegetarians consumed less zinc than pregnant non-vegetarians, with both groups' intake below recommended levels; however, the review found no significant difference between groups in actual zinc levels in bodily tissues, nor any effect on gestation period or birth weight.[34]

Researchers have reported cases of vitamin B12 deficiency in lactating vegetarian mothers that were linked to deficiencies and neurological disorders in their children.[35][36] It is recommended that a doctor or registered dietitian should be consulted about taking supplements during pregnancy.[37][38]

Vegan diets have attracted negative attention from the media because of cases of nutritional deficiencies that have come to the attention of the courts, including the death of a baby in New Zealand in 2002 due to hypocobalaminemia, i.e. vitamin B12 deficiency.[39][40]

Critical nutrients[edit]

The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics states that special attention may be necessary to ensure that a vegan diet will provide adequate amounts of vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, calcium, iodine, iron, and zinc.[1] These nutrients are available in plant foods, with the exception of vitamin B12, which can be obtained only from B12-fortified vegan foods or supplements.[41] Iodine may also require supplementation, such as using iodized salt.[1]

Vitamin B12[edit]

Further information: Vitamin B12 deficiency
 
Vegan food pyramid based on suggestions from the American Dietetic Association

Vitamin B12 is not made by plants or animals, but by bacteria that grow in soil, feces, dirty water, the intestines of animals or laboratories,[42][43][44][45][46] so plant foods are not reliable sources of B12.[47] It is synthesized by some gut bacteria in humans and other animals, but humans cannot absorb the B12 made in their guts, as it is made in the colon which is too far from the small intestine, where absorption of B12 occurs.[48] Ruminants, such as cows and sheep, absorb B12 produced by bacteria in their guts.[48]

Animals store vitamin B12 in liver and muscle and some pass the vitamin into their eggs and milk; meat, liver, eggs and milk are therefore sources of B12.[49][50]

The UK Vegan Society, the Vegetarian Resource Group, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, among others, recommend that every vegan consume adequate B12 either from fortified foods or by taking a supplement.[51][52][53][54]

Vitamin B12 deficiency is potentially extremely serious, leading to megaloblastic anemia (an undersupply of oxygen due to malformed red blood cells),[55] nerve degeneration and irreversible neurological damage.[56] Because B12 is stored in large amounts in the liver, deficiency in adults may begin only years after adoption of a diet lacking B12. For infants and young children who have not built up these stores, onset of B12 deficiency can be faster and supplementation for vegan children is thus crucial.

Evidence shows that vegans who are not taking vitamin B12 supplements do not consume sufficient B12 and often have abnormally low blood concentrations of vitamin B12.[57] This is because, unless fortified, plant foods do not contain reliable amounts of active vitamin B12. Vegans are advised to adopt one of the following dietary options:[58]

  • Consume fortified foods 2-3 times per day to get at least 3 micrograms of vitamin B12,
  • or take 10 micrograms of B12 as a supplement once per day
  • or take 2000 micrograms of B12 as a supplement once per week

B12 is more efficiently absorbed in small regular doses, which explains why the quantity required rises so quickly as frequency goes down.

The US National Institutes of Health recommends B12 intake in a range from 0.4 micrograms a day for infants, to 2.4 micrograms for adults, and up to 2.8 micrograms for nursing mothers. [59] The European Food Safety Authority set the Adequate Intake at 1.5 micrograms for infants, 4 micrograms for children and adults, and 4.5 and 5 micrograms during pregnancy and nursing.[60] These amounts can be obtained by eating B12 fortified foods, which include some common breakfast cereals, soy milks, and meat analogues, as well as from common multivitamins such as One-A-Day. Some of the fortified foods require only a single serving to provide the recommended B12 amounts. [61]

Other B12 fortified foods may include some almond milks, coconut milks, other plant milks, nutritional yeast, vegan mayonnaise, tofu, and various types and brands of vegan deli slices, burgers, and other veggie meats.

It has been suggested that nori (an edible seaweed), tempeh (a fermented soybean food), and nutritional yeast may be sources of vitamin B12.[62][63] In 2016, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics stated that nori, fermented foods (such as tempeh), spirulinachlorella algae, and unfortified nutritional yeast are not adequate sources of vitamin B12 and that vegans need to consume regularly fortified foods or supplements containing B12. Otherwise, vitamin B12 deficiency may develop, as has been demonstrated in case studies of vegan infants, children, and adults.[64]

Vitamin B12 is mostly manufactured by industrial fermentation of various kinds of bacteria, which make forms of cyanocobalamin, which are further processed to generate the ingredient included in supplements and fortified foods.[65][66] A Pseudomonas denitrificans strain was most commonly used as of 2017.[67][68] It is grown in a medium containing sucroseyeast extract, and several metallic salts. To increase vitamin production, it is supplemented with sugar beet molasses, or, less frequently, with choline.[67] Certain brands of B12 supplements are certified vegan.[69]

Iodine[edit]

Humans require iodine for the production of thyroid hormones that enable normal thyroid function.[70] Iodine supplementation may be necessary for vegans in countries where salt is not typically iodized, where it is iodized at low levels, or where, as in Britain and Ireland, dairy products are relied upon for iodine delivery because of low levels in the soil.[71] Iodine can be obtained from most vegan multivitamins or regular consumption of seaweeds, such as kelp.[72]

One study reported a "potential danger of iodine deficiency disorders due to strict forms of vegetarian nutrition, especially when fruits and vegetables grown in soils with low [iodine] levels are ingested."[73] Vegan diets typically require special attention for iodine, for which the only substantial and reliable vegan sources are sea vegetables, iodized salt and supplements. The iodine content of sea vegetables varies widely and may provide more than the recommended upper limit of iodine intake.[1]

Protein[edit]

Proteins are composed of amino acids. Vegans obtain all their protein from plants, omnivores usually a third, and ovo-lacto vegetarians half.[74] Sources of plant protein include legumes such as soy beans (consumed as tofutempehtextured vegetable protein, soy milk, and edamame), peas, peanuts, black beans, and chickpeas (the latter often eaten as hummus); grains such as quinoa, brown rice, corn, barley, bulgur, and wheat (the latter eaten as bread and seitan); and nuts and seeds. Combinations that contain high amounts of all the essential amino acids include rice and beans, corn and beans, and hummus and whole-wheat pita.[75] In 2012, the United States Department of Agriculture stated that soy protein (tofu) may replace meat protein in the National School Lunch Program.[20]

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics said in 2009 that a variety of plant foods consumed over the course of a day can provide all the essential amino acids for healthy adults, which means that protein combining in the same meal is generally not necessary.[76] The Dietitian's Guide to Vegetarian Diets writes that there is little reason to advise vegans to increase their protein intake; but erring on the side of caution, the authors recommend a 25 percent increase over the RDA for adults, to 1 g/kg (15gr/lb) of body weight.[77]

Omega-3 fatty acids[edit]

 
Flaxseeds are a rich source of ALA, the precursor to DHA and EPA, the omega-3 fatty acids
 
Walnuts are another rich source of ALA, the precursor to DHA and EPA, the omega-3 oils

Major vegan sources of the essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA include walnutsflaxseeds and flaxseed oil, canola (rapeseed) oil, algae oil, hempseeds and hempseed oil, olive oil, and avocado.[1]

Diets without seafood are lower in non-essential long-chain omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA. Short-term supplemental ALA has been shown to increase EPA levels, but not DHA levels, suggesting limited conversion of the intermediary EPA to DHA.[78] DHA supplements derived from DHA-rich microalgae are available, and the human body can also convert DHA to EPA.[79] Although omega-3 has previously been thought useful for helping alleviate dementia, as of 2016, there is no good evidence of effectiveness.[80]

While there is little evidence of adverse health or cognitive effects due to DHA deficiency in adult vegetarians or vegans, fetal and breast milk levels remain a concern.[78] EPA and DHA supplementation has been shown to reduce platelet aggregation in vegetarians, but a direct link to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, which is already lower for vegetarians, has yet to be determined.[81]

Calcium[edit]

It is recommended that vegans eat three servings per day of a high-calcium food, such as fortified plant milks, green leafy vegetables, seeds, tofu, or other calcium-rich foods, and take a calcium supplement as necessary.[1][82]

A 2009 study of bone density found the bone density of vegans was 94 percent that of omnivores, but deemed the difference clinically insignificant.[83]

Calcium is one component of the most common type of human kidney stones, calcium oxalate. Some studies suggest that people who take supplemental calcium have a higher risk of developing kidney stones, and these findings have been used as the basis for setting the recommended daily intake (RDI) for calcium in adults.[84][85][86]

Calcium intake through food sources is preferred over supplementation given inconclusive but growing evidence to suggest that supplementation carries no health benefit or might be harmful.[87]

Iron[edit]

It is recommended for vegans to eat iron-rich foods and vitamin C daily.[88] In several studies, vegans were not found to suffer from iron-deficiency any more than non-vegans.[89][90][91][92] However, due to the low absorption rate on non-heme iron it is recommended to eat dark leafy greens (and other sources of iron) together with sources of Vitamin C.[93] Iron supplementation should be taken at different times to other supplements with a 2+ valence (chemistry) such as calcium or magnesium, as they inhibit the absorption of iron.[94]

Iron and the zinc levels of vegans may be of concern because of the limited bioavailability of these minerals. There are concerns about the bioavailability of iron from plant foods, assumed by some researchers to be 5–15 percent compared to 18 percent from a non-vegetarian diet.[95] Iron-deficiency anemia is found as often in non-vegetarians as in vegetarians, and vegetarians' iron stores are lower.[96]

Due to the lower bioavailability of iron from plant sources, the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences established a separate RDA for vegetarians and vegans of 14 mg (¼gr) for vegetarian men and postmenopausal women, and 33 mg (½gr) for premenopausal women not using oral contraceptives.[97]

High-iron vegan foods include soybeansblackstrap molasses, black beans, lentilschickpeasspinachtempehtofu, and lima beans.[98][99] Iron absorption can be enhanced by eating a source of vitamin C at the same time,[100] such as half a cup of cauliflower or five fluid ounces of orange juiceCoffee and some herbal teas can inhibit iron absorption, as can spices that contain tannins such as turmericcoriander, chiles, and tamarind.[99]

Choline[edit]

Some news reports presented vegan diets as deficient in choline following an opinion piece in the BMJ by a nutritionist affiliated with the meat industry.[101][102][103] Although many animal products, like liver and egg, contain high amounts of choline (355 mg/3 oz and 126 mg/large egg, respectively), wheat germ (172 mg/cup), Brussels sprouts (63 mg/cup), and broccoli (62 mg/cup) are also good sources of choline.[104] Other sources are, among others, soybeans, mushrooms, tangerines and whole wheat pitta bread.[102]

Due to lack of evidence, no country has published a Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for choline, which is a vitamin-like essential nutrient. The Australian, New Zealand, and European Union national nutrition bodies note there have been no reports of choline deficiency in the general population.[105] There are, however, Adequate Intakes such as the European Union's number of 400 mg/day for adults, and the US's number of 425 mg/day for adult non-pregnant women and 550 mg/day for adult men. An Adequate Intake is a level assumed to ensure nutritional adequacy, established when evidence is insufficient to develop an RDA[106] (see Dietary Reference Intake).

Choline deficiency, as created in lab conditions, can lead to health problems such as liver damage, a result of liver cells initiating programmed cell death (apoptosis), as well as an increase in neural tube defects in pregnant women.[104] In a study, 77% of men, 44% of premenopausal women, and 80% of postmenopausal women developed fatty liver or muscle damage due to choline deficiency, showing that subject characteristics regulate the dietary requirement.[107] There is also some evidence that choline is an anti-inflammatory, but further studies are needed to confirm/refute findings.[108] Many multivitamins do not contain the Adequate Intake of choline.[109]

Vitamin D[edit]

The main function of vitamin D in the body is to enhance absorption of calcium for normal mineralization of bones and calcium-dependent tissues.[33]

Sunlight, fortified foods, and dietary supplements are the main sources of vitamin D for vegans. Humans produce vitamin D naturally in response to sun exposure and ultraviolet light (UV) acting on skin to stimulate vitamin D synthesis.[33] UV light penetrates the skin at wavelengths between 290 and 320 nanometers, where it is then converted into vitamin D3.[33] Vitamin D2 can be obtained from fungi, such as mushrooms exposed to sun or industrial ultraviolet light, offering a vegan choice for dietary or supplemental vitamin D.[110][111] Plant milks, such as from oatsoy, or almond, and breakfast cereals are commonly fortified with vitamin D.[33]

The recommended daily intake of vitamin D for adults is 600 IU (15 micrograms), and for adults over 70 years old, 800 IU (20 micrograms).[33]

Vitamin D comes in two forms. Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) is synthesized in the skin after exposure to the sun or consumed from food, usually from animal sources.[33] Ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) is derived from ergosterol from UV-exposed mushrooms or yeast.[33] When produced industrially as supplements, vitamin D3 is typically derived from lanolin in sheep wool. However, both provitamins and vitamins D2 and D3 have been discovered in various species of edible Cladina lichens (especially Cladina rangiferina).[112] These edible lichen are harvested in the wild for producing vegan vitamin D3.[113] Conflicting studies have suggested that the two forms of vitamin D may or may not be bioequivalent.[114] According to 2011 research from the U. S. National Academy of Medicine (then called Institute of Medicine), the differences between vitamins D2 and D3 do not affect metabolism, both function as prohormones, and when activated, exhibit identical responses in the body.[115] Although vitamin D3 is produced in small amounts by lichens or algae exposed to sunlight,[116][117] industrial production in commercial quantities is limited, and there are few supplement products as of 2019.[118]
