It's perfectly possible to be vegan and 100% healthy. In fact, Vegans are in general much more nutrition and health aware than non-vegans.
Avocados and almonds are far from perfect, and they do some damage for sure. But their impact is still far below dairy and meat. But 1kg of Avocado uses: ◉ 3.7 times less water than 1kg of cheese ◉ 6.5 times less water than 1kg of butter ◉ 18 times less water than 1kg of beef
Some Avocado plantations use transported beehives.
But it's not harmful to bees.

Losing weight is about eating less.
But this is not the main reason for people to go vegan: 1. For the Animals 2. For the Environment 3. For Health or Weight Loss
Drink dairy to have strong bones! Who hasn't heard that?
Vegans, vegetarians, and pescetarians have a similar risk of breaking bones
Scientists have put that down to both calcium and protein. Not Dairy
Vitamin B12 is Made in Soil by Bacteria Not by animals
Most animals don't ingest B12 from the soil and are given supplements
So everyone, not just vegans directly or indirectly are given B12 supplements!
Soy Milk contains a substance called Phytoestrogen
It is similar to the female hormone estrogen.
But unlike estrogen, phytoestrogen has nothing to do with cancer or breast development.
Plant-Based But Not Vegan: ◉ Cacao: when not ethically sourced ◉ Olive Oil: when it destroys an eco-system ◉ Honey: because bees are taken their necessary honey ◉ etc.
Steel manufacturing uses animal products
Glycerin is a byproduct of soap making that uses animal products
Latex is treated with Casein, a milk protein.
So, are cars, lightbulbs, screws not vegan?
Veganism is about reducing the impact of our life on others, on animals, and on the planet. It would be impossible to have no impact at all.
