If you go vegan you should be mindful of the information below

Vitamin B12
You will need one dose of 2500mcg of vitamin B12 once every week. Even
omnivores who become Vitamin B12 defecient will have to take B12
supplement to fix it. Low Vitamin B12 will lead to higher homocysteine
levels in your blood which is an artery-damaging compound.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=QpfNcYenz9c
https://nutritionfacts.org/video/vitamin-b12-recommendation-change/
People above 50 should take 2500mcg of vitamin B12 every week vegan or not.
People above 65 should take 1000mcg of vitamin B12 every day vegan or not.

Iodine
You will need 2 nori sheets a day in your diet(there is a tiny chance
for vegans going iodine deficient if they give up iodized salt)
For more on iodine rich food sources
https://nutritionfacts.org/video/avoiding-iodine-deficiency-2/

Lysine
You should include legumes(peanuts,lentils,beans) in your diet
everyday to avoid defeciency of one essential amino acid called
lysine. For more info
http://www.theveganrd.com/2011/01/vegan-food-guide-protein-and-new-book.html

Selenium
You should include 2 brazil nuts in your diet everyday coz there is a
tiny chance for vegans becoming selenium defecient. More than 2 brazil
nuts a day may cause selenium poisoning coz brazil nuts are very high
in selenium.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkcO_wJ9yKo this is a lecture by

kourii: There was not a strong enough crowd response and laughter to 'Say hello to my little Debbie'

TheTankingGamer: Ah, I miss the old High Fructose Corn Syrup is made of corn commercials.

Timothy Z: Like the approach of the Last Week Tonight program though it would be more beneficial for all world citizens to measure on the Base 10 measurement system to simplify and harmonize interworking. Circus peanuts are not a global product, thus are limited in use outside of the humor value.

Jeremy Stallings: I hate it when you buy cheap microwave pasta, and despite the relatively cheap nature of tomato meat sauce, the key ingredient is somehow "sugar" and it tastes terrible- if you took the same dish, bought some cheap sauce, and mixed it in instead, it's a world of a difference. It's not even that it microwaves better, as far as I can tell, they just added sugar for extra weight and calorie count.

Karrie Moran: If they used teaspoons as a measurement, it would actually look better. There are approximately 4 grams in a teaspoon, so if there was 12 grams of sugar, they could label it as 3 teaspoons instead

Dakila Lozano: 4:09 why i liked
