All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Charles Marlowe (TheVeganCheetah) has published a video about the termination of a youtube channel of Martin Louis and his reflections on his own content. The description of the video: 

Earlier this week Marin Louis lost his YouTube channel. In this video I am reaching out to him, and showing support for his channel going back online. This is another reason why we need to move in a new direction this year with my channel. 

My comment: 

Charles, you've been kind to me when I tried to start a channel a few years ago, I wish I could say something good but honest to you. Your vlogs are very good, I've actually enjoyed most of them from the beginning: your story is strong, you have a nice presence on camera. I think, you possess some excellent material for a documentary film - maybe you could find a filmmaker to work on it (unfortunately, though, it is hard to make money with documentaries, but if film is recognized by some festivals, you can be noticed by the right people in the industry). If you cannot make a film, right a script in your spare time. 

Your drama channel has two flaws from my perspective: your provocative ideas are expressed in a too unpleasant way, and you do not research enough for a proper argument. I do believe you can find a good audience among people who approach veganism from various directions, but it is good to acknowledge that being fully vegan is still a personal accomplishment and a social position, and respect that as well. You had a good opportunity to bring people together with that idea, but the way you did it was counterproductive (if it was your intent, I doubt it though). Stay critical, but invest some time in improving your critical thinking. Good luck in LA.

Vitamin B12 Cobalamin

Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells. It is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis, fatty acid and amino acid metabolism.

No fungi, plants, nor animals (including humans) are capable of producing vitamin B12. Only bacteria and archaea have the enzymes needed for its synthesis. Proved food sources of B12 are animal products (meat, fish, dairy products). Some research states that certain non-animal products possibly can be a natural source of B12 because of bacterial symbiosis.

B12 is the largest and most structurally complicated vitamin and can be produced industrially only through a bacterial fermentation-synthesis. This synthetic B12 is used to fortify foods and sold as a dietary supplement.

Vitamin B12 consists of a class of chemically related compounds (vitamers), all of which show pharmacological activity. It contains the biochemically rare element cobalt (chemical symbol Co). The vitamer is produced by bacteria as hydroxocobalamin, but conversion between different forms of the vitamin occurs in the body after consumption

B12 aids in lowering homocysteine levels and may lower the risk of heart disease. 

Recommended daily amount: 2.4 mcg

Example sources: fortified cereals, doenjang and chunggukjang (fermented soybeans), nori (seaweed).
