Here's an excerpt of an interview of Russell Blaylock, MD by Mike Adams. Food companies are all to eager to use soy in veggie burgers, hot dogs, deli slices and more. Also, yeast extracts are commonly used to give a "cheesy" taste to fake cheese. If you look around , there are products like Amy's Sonoma Veggie Burger, which don't use soy. My favorite burgers are Hilary's Eat Well soy free burgers. They are tasty and can even be heated in the toaster.

Mike Adams: "I find a lot of the
vegetarian foods, or so-called health foods, use yeast extracts.
Dr. Blaylock: The worst of the things they're doing are the soy extracts. Soybeans, naturally, have one of the highest glutamate levels of any of the plant products. When you hydrolyze it, you release the glutamate, such as with the soy protein isolates. The glutamate levels are higher than a lot of what you'll find in other MSG-contaning products, yet the vegetarians are just eating it like it's the healthiest thing in the world. There was a 25-year study done, which looked at people who consumed the most
soy products, and they followed them for 25 years and did serial CT scans of their brain. They found out that the people who consumed the most soybean products had the greatest incidence of dementia and brain atrophy. These people are destroying their nervous system, and I talked to a lot of them who complained of severe
migraine headaches. I said, "Get off the soy," and they do, and that migraine headache goes away. In addition, you have very high manganese
levels, which is toxic to the very same part of the brain that produces Parkinson's. You've got a mixture of toxins with soy products, and the people think they are eating a healthy, nutritious product. It's destroying their nervous system, as well as other organs."
There are so many vegan foods that don't use soy. Say "yes" to vegan, but try to say "no" to soy.

How do you feed 7 billion (and growing) people? Not with meat. Bill Gates is excited about meat analogues, and has invested in Beyond Meat. On his blog, Gatesnotes, it states that it takes up to 14.4 times more grain to produce a kilogram of protein from meat as it does from Beyond Meat. Mr. Gates has also invested in Hampton Creek Foods, which will be selling an egg alternative and vegan mayo. The food industry likes the egg alternative because it costs 18% less than eggs, and is cholesterol free.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens recommends carnosine for vegetarians and vegans. In fact, he says even meat eaters are usually deficient in it. The one he likes is Carnosine from Quantum Nutrition Labs. It's a powder, but has almost no taste. so you can mix it with a little water, and it doesn't taste bad.
The vitamin B12 Dr. Cousens likes is Perque Activated B-12 Guard. If you read the reviews, it seems to work quickly and help offset fatigue well.
Recomended by Joel Fuhrman, MD is taurine. Here's the one I like:
Solgar Taurine 500mg 100 Vegetable Capsules
Another great source for vegan nutrition is Jameth Sheridan. He formulates the Health Force Nutritionals products. His Healthforce Vitamineral Earth Powder is a terrific healing food. It incorporates herbs used in traditional formulas like the Essiac formula, but brings it up to the 21st century with what we now know are foods to support optimum health. I love making a hot broth with it as the label suggests. But if you're in a hurry, you can mix it with cold water.
Vitamin D Vegan from Nordic Naturals is made from lichen, not sheeps' wool.
For other vitamins, Deva Vegan Vitamins are a good choice.
