    Gross, I don't like PETA. Neither do a lot of vegans. My veganism is mostly environmental, but I also believe that animals are unique individuals with the right to life. I guess I'm not inherently opposed to the idea of people eating meat for survival purposes.

    There are a ton of other animal rights organizations, like MFA, COK (those being my two favorites), Veg Outreach is pretty good too IIRC. PETA is a buch of sexist capitalist yoo-hoos with an incredibly shameful euthanasia rate. Not all vegans and vegetarians are talking heads for PETA.

    Falcarius is a vegetarian. No individual reason but rather a collection from health, environmental, and animal welfare.

    What about the argument that the human body cannot produce B12 on its own, and B12 is only found in animal flesh? (just curious, because I don't care, I eat meat because I feel better when I eat meat).

    Microorganisms, primarily bacteria, are the only known organisms that manufacture B12. These bacteria often live in bodies of water and soil. Animals get B12 by eating food and soil contaminated with these microorganisms. From here

    So, I get my vitamin b12 from fortified milk alternatives, nutritional yeast, I've heard that some sea veggies are naturally high in b12, there are breakfast cereals with it, and energy drinks; no animals involved.
