Safest Sources Of Vitamin B-12

#1 Postby beforewisdom » Sat Feb 11, 2012 11:16 am

In this video Dr. Michael Greger M.D., the director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at the Humane Society of the United States explains why the vitamin b-12 found in human colons is useless for human nutritional needs. Interestingly, the video also points out how meat eaters are coming up deficient in vitamin b-12 and that the people with the healthiest vitamin b-12 levels are people who supplements ( fortified foods are just supplements blended into food ).

Dr. Greger mentioned those things because many raw food gurus tell their followers that they do not need vitamin b-12 supplements because there is b-12 in the human colon. This is true, but it is useless to human nutrition.
