Iron deficiency may be responsible for the high incidence of retardation, birth defects, and weakened physical condition endemic in vegetarian societies. Without the proteins contained in the forbidden foods (grains, beans, dairy products), severe protein deficiencies will occur which could be life threatening. As the principle cause of animal extinction and death is the plow and not the slaughterhouse, vegetarians actually kill more animals through starvation and habitat destruction than does the meat-eater through his dietary habits.
