@InvaderXan Thanks for that great compilation. I'm for a few years now and even I didn't know some of these yet.

I'd just like to add that the list of essential nutrients you should substitute to avoid deficiencies is much longer if you are on a typical western diet.

People often have the prejudice that vegans and even vegetarians can't have a balanced diet, because they are missing something, but what they don't get is that eating meat and animal fats every day is much less balanced.
