    I can't find current research links online (I'm sure you can do a google search on it...) but I can point you to some books:

    Dietary Reference Intakes for Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Biotin, and Choline, National Academy Press, 1998.

    Hulda Regehr Clark, PhD, ND. The Cure for All Diseases. Chula Vista, California: New Century Press, 1995.

    Homocysteine in health and disease, ed. Ralph Carmel and Donald W. Jacobsen, Cambridge University Press, 2001.

    H. Winter Griffith, MD. Vitamins, Herbs, Minerals, & Supplements. USA: Fisher Books, 1998.

    The American Dietetic Association and the National Institute of Health have also published studies regarding digestive issues (across all types of eaters) that can hinder absorption, as well as how increased age affects absorption. I'm sure there are links on their respective sites.

    Sublingual absorption of B12 supplements is the best method. Fortified foods are a decent source, but don't put all your eggs in one basket. This should clear things up for you:

    Jeno by nutritional yeast do you mean Engevita yeast? Because although you couldn't pay me to be meatless, Engevita yeast (esp. on popcorn) is DELICIOUS.

    Yes, Kangirl. That's one brand of it. You can make all kinds of things out of it (even macaroni and "cheese"). I love it.

    I wouldn't mind becoming a vegetarian, but I really would love to still have fish in my diet, and maybe... once in a while, a piece of steak. Salmon.. yum.. Tuna tataki. Ooh..

    A low carb, high protein diet (tofu), keeps me alert/full for longer periods o time.

    I feel bad when I eat meat, especially after seeing Food, inc. The scene where the pigs get pounced to death.. ugh..

People just look and smell so much better to me if they eat less processed/high fat/high sugar food.
    I know what u mean.. like the smell like McDonalds..

    vegetarian.
    albiet a rather unhealthy one.
    ( college food sucks :[ )

    I don't drink milk and I don't like eggs,
    but I enjoy products with these ingredients in them.
    I was a vegan for about a month and when I transitioned back to vegetarian,
    I felt a bit tired.

    Couldn't be vegan again,
    cheese is my meat.
    I used to eat a lot of meat before becoming a veg-head,
    now I can't stand the smell of it.

    ditto. i also live in a multi-cultural household, where my roommates will want to share some special cultural dish with me. so on certain occasions, i'll eat meat. however, i point out the difference in that i never actively buy meat to cook and eat, and also that on normal occasions i will turn it down.

    dude, i'm a terribly unhealthy vegetarian at the moment, too. college lifestyle and pockets do indeed kinda suck. i eat a lot of ramen, mcdonalds french fries, and fast food salads. mostly ramen. haha. however, i do add in my own veggies.

    i'm lactose intolerant, so i don't do too well with milk and cheese. however, i looooove eggs. wish i could give them up. i tried the vegan thing for about a month, once. i was even more unhealthy. i just ate fries constantly, because i was so aggravated from having cut out so much from my diet, and began despising salads. gained a lot of weight that month. weird.
    i'd like to try it again, but i'm transitioning a little slower. i've been a vegetarian for about a year and a half now, and once i'm more and more acquainted with the lifestyle and being a healthier vegetarian... i'll slowly cut out those other things.
