I have nothing against vegetarians and vegans either. One of my friends who will not eat any meat protein, milk, eggs, fish, got a terrible skin condition.
Now she was eating like you are suppose too, grains, legumes, fruit, vegetables. She seem to be doing everything right. However she got so bad they had to put her on lots of vitamins to clear her up and it took a long time. The Doctor wanted her to a least eat fish and she would not.
She ate as much organic as she could. Don't know what happened but her body was just not recovering the nutrients it needed from her diet. Resulting in poor tissue growth.
I like Dr Mercola and I think you are right we only need a little meat. Some animal products in our diets go a long way.
If you ever get a chance read the book The Body Electric by Robert O. Becker, M.D. and Gary Selden.
It discusses the frequency of the foods we eat and what effect is has on the body. Very interesting.
