But what are the disadvantages of vegetarianism? It is only fair to cover these as well:
Here are what I see as the Disadvantages of Vegetarianism:
- When following a vegetarian diet, especially for children there are numerous deficiencies that could occur as a result. These include iron, calcium, zinc and vitamins like D, B12, B2, B6.
- The vegetarian diet usually contains less energy and protein overall, so this can be detrimental to some people, children in particular.
- When traveling abroad you may find it harder to find a wide selection of food in some countries.
However, reading this blog you will see that with some thought and care it is easy to maintain a healthy vegetarian diet and the disadvantages of vegetarianism are few.
