Re: Vitamin B12 and awful experience at Vitamin Cottage

I still think Vitamin Cottage is a great place to shop.  I do take a B12 supplement and have seen many of Greger's talks on the importance of it.

I study a great deal of nutrition.  I felt slighted because they were advertising meat and making the veg diet look bad in my opinion.  I have read Vitamin Cottage magazines and they say you need complete proteins on a veg diet (combining grains and beans) which has been proven false years ago.  

I think they were misleading people that don't know much about plant based nutrition
that taking on a vegan/vegetarian or plant based diet isn't possible w/o animal products.

I think the signs should have said "good source of fiber, nutrients, and compassion friendly" on the vegan products and "no fiber, cholesterol, and cruelty" on the animal products.  
My Best,
Shane Scaglione
