WebMD, along with the entire internet, says Vitamin B12 from plants is available from a variety of sources. Let us examine these sources, shall we? Nutritional yeast is not a plant, but a bacteria. Fake big pharma "B12" from fortified foods do not come from plants, but actually come from genetically modified bacteria. Fake big pharma "B12" from cereals do not come from plants, but again come from genetically modified bacteria. Mushrooms are not plants. Algae are also not technically plants, but "plant-like" unicellular organisms that "contain every organ necessary for a life".
While most living organisms consist of many cells, a single cell of Chlorella is an independent life form. It is called a unicellular organism. Although Chlorella is a microscopic plant invisible to the naked eye, it is provided with every organ and function necessary for a life in its cell as a complete organism. Chlorella is a marvelous unicellular plant possessing more ability and power than commonly seen plants.
Chlorella is a "unicellular organism" complete with "every organ and function necessary for life" just like an animal. Not only that, but Chlorella also possesses more "ability and power than commonly seen in plants". Perhaps this is so because it is not a plant at all! Conveniently, chlorella is a tiny little "plant-like" organism that vegans do not regard as an animal in the classical sense, presumably, as a means to overlook the violation of vegan dogma. Much like bacteria, who are also considered to be "not animals", "plant-like unicellular organisms complete with every organ necessary for life" are also not considered to be "alive" in the vegan animal sense.
Now let us examine the life of bacteria, who are forced, by the trillions, to comprise the B12 found in nutritional yeast for vegan supplementation. The Australian Museum again says "No, bacteria are not animals. Although bacteria does share some characteristics with animals, for example, bacteria produces a typical nucleic acid that are found in parts of the human pancreas, spleen, and sperm." So again, the lives of bacteria have been relegated by western scientists to non animal status although they curiously "do share some characteristics with animals", just like chlorella, these characteristics are conveniently overlooked to placate the moral relativism relied upon by vegans. Now let us examine the life and times and desires of bacteria in this video of a bacterium being chased by a white blood cell.
Clearly the bacterium in the above video exhibits a desire to survive predation and an ability to navigate its environment in order to evade predators, because, just like a motile animal and unlike plants, it has a desire and ability to keep on living and evading. Now let us examine deer escaping predation by wolves. We can clearly see the similarity between organismal desires and, regardless of the cellular makeup of bacteria and the opinions of them derived by western scientists, much like animals, bacteria exhibit an obvious strong will to live.
Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, which means yeast cells are killed during processing and inactive in the final product. It's described as having a nutty, cheesy, and savory flavor. It's a common vegan cheese substitute. Nutritional yeast comes in the form of powder or flakes.
Nutritional yeast bacteria are first violated through genetic modification to increase B12 production for industrial practices and then quietly "deactivated" (killed) by the countless trillions to produce vegan cheese, so that vegans can enjoy cheese without the guilt associated from real cheese. Now we are beginning to see the strange contradictions formulated in the vegan mindset.
Instead of meat and dairy, experts recommend taking supplements or eating vegan food that has been fortified with B12. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that you get as many nutrients as possible from food, but, as Dr. Greger notes, it may be difficult to obtain sufficient amounts of B12 from fortified foods. However, he maintains that taking a dietary supplement will be the most efficient way for most to get their B12.
The Daily Gem says, "Chlorella is 50 to 60 percent protein and is a complete protein source, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids, as well as vitamin B12, iron, vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein, magnesium, zinc, copper, potassium, calcium, folic acid, and omega-3 fatty acids." Vitamin B12 in its natural state is only found through the production of soil microbes, intestinal bacteria from the large intestine, in the flesh of animals and their milk and, coincidently, in Chlorella. Can anyone think of any other plant that can do what chlorella does? No? That's probably because Chlorella is not a plant.
