But vitamin B12 is only found in animal products!

Bacteria are not classified scientifically as animals. Hence it is a scientific inaccuracy to say that B12 is an animal product. In our modern world, yes we are super hygienic and sometimes getting that bacteria source needs to be paid attention to. If the only way to get a certain vitamin naturally was from kicking a small child would you do it, or would take a supplement so you didn’t have to kick the small child? This of course isn’t the case with veganism, because we can actually get vitamin b12 naturally without supplements, but if it’s that much of a concern for vitb12, supplements are very easy to get. It’s also a vitamin that stores very well in the body over time. They say that deficiencies often don’t even begin to develop until after 5 years. And some evidence actually questions our need for this vitamin altogether. Check it out. It’s all interesting stuff. I personally take a b12 supplement because it’s easy and actually tastes good — i get the chewable kind
