@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.

This is true, yes. The big irony is how many people eat nothing but meats and starches and end up with nutrient deficiencies that way instead. πŸ˜•
