Breastfeeding vegan mothers – are you taking your vitamin B12?

This short clip from Nutritionfacts.org puts out a rather hard hitting message about vegan diets, delivered in what might seem like an offensive manor to some people. Since the nutritional advice is very important, especially to breastfeeding mothers, I’m posting it anyway.. but I apologise to those that might be offended. Many of the people I know personally that have flirted with veganism are well aware of the importance of taking B12 supplements. However, there does seem to be a danger that people adopting a vegan diet without a vitamin B12 supplement could be unaware of the impact for their own health and that of their newborn baby.
