Vegans (as followers of veganism are called) shun all foods that are derived from animals. This includes not only meat and seafood, but also milk, butter, eggs and even honey.

If I'm a vegan, how can I get enough vitamin B12?

If you are vegan you cannot get enough vitamin B12, since the form found in plants is poorly absorbed by humans. A good solution, which I have found works for many of my vegan friends, is to add some raw milk and cheese into your diet. These foods are great sources of vitamin B12 and B6. Even the vegan guru David Wolfe admitted to consuming raw milk.
